Today, most wells are made by drilling into the rock layers or sand using special machines (drill rigs) to access water deep beneath the surface. The construction of a water well consists of several elements. Placement of the well is very important. Local codes require certain distances from septic and sand mounds, property lines, etc. Another consideration would be general sloping of the lot and access to the well for future servicing. The actual hole for most domestic wells is a diameter of 4-6 inches. Drilling a well requires the use of special equipment that requires considerable skill. All wells require casing to protect the well from possible contaminants at or near the ground surface. Casing may not be needed for the full depth of the well in solid rock.

After drilling operations are complete, a trench is dug to connect the well

 

 

  

 

into the building. Submersible pumps are installed to raise the water to the surface and pump it to the pressure tank in the house. We use Goulds and Grundfos stainless steel submersible pumps because we feel they are the best products on the market. Through our years of experience we have found that these products last longer and require little service for 10-20 years.
