Why do I have low water pressure?
There can be many things that can cause this type of problem. Your pressure tank could be failing, your pump volume may be slowing down, you could have problems in your water softener/conditioning equipment, the plumbing in the home may be restricted, or there could be a mechanical failure in your well system.
How often should I do preventative maintenance on my well system?
We recommend doing preventative maintenance on your well system every 7-10 years, depending on what type of well system you have. Some well systems require more frequent maintenance.
What do I do if I have an old, unused well on my property?
If you have an old, unused well on your property, you need to have it sealed by a licensed well contractor. Wells which are no longer in use can be a potential threat to health, safety, & the environment. An unused, unsealed well can provide an open channel to allow surface contaminants, surface water, or improperly disposed wastes to directly reach the groundwater. Large diameter wells can be a safety hazard, especially for children and animals.
How much will a new well system cost?
There are many different well system options. Geology conditions, water table, pump size, well size & depth all pertain to the system cost. We initially will send a representative to your home to discuss your needs and inform you of your options available in your area.
How do I identify what type of well system I have?
There are 3 different types of wells.
- Dug/Augered – These types of wells are constructed of wood-curbed or cement tile and are usually large diameter and shallow wells.
- Driven – These types of wells are steel cased and can range from 30 feet to 1000 feet deep from 2″ to 24″ diameter. The most common driven well for residential is 5″ diameter.
- Drilled – These types of wells can be PVC or steel cased, screened or open hole wells. These wells can range from 2″ to 24″ diameter, and depths from 30 feet to 1000 feet.
