    My husband and I were thinking about putting a water well out by the garden, and I was trying to find out the maintenance upkeep. The neighbor's across from us have a water well, and it seems like their maintenance routine is very simple. Every few months they do a few clean regiments, and they call it good. Is it really that simple?
