Frequently Asked Questions about Well Drilling

What is the difference between a standard pump system and a constant pressure pump system?

Standard pump system

In a standard pumping system, a pressure switch controls the water pump. When the pressure drops to a certain level, typically around 30 psi the pump turns on. It continues pumping until the pressure reaches typically 50 psi at which point it shuts off. Water pressure fluctuates between these two levels during operation.

Constant Pressure System:

constant pressure system relies on a pressure sensor for control. When the pressure drops by only 5 psi, the system activates the pump. This system is less likely to cause fluctuation in water pressure and supplies a  more consistent pressure.

Do you need to leave the well casing above ground level?

The casing should be 12” above ground level.  This prevents contaminants from running into your water source.

Do you give free estimates on water wells?

Yes! Please contact us today to schedule an estimate.

What is a hydro frack?

Hydro frack is the process used to enhance the productivity of water wells.

  • water is injected under extremely high pressure into the bedrock formation through the well.
  • The goal is to flush out small particles and rock fragments from existing bedrock fractures.
  • As a result, these fractures are cleared and widened, creating more pathways for water flow.

Do you hydro frack?

Yes, we do! Check out our hydrofracking page here.

Do you drill geothermal wells?

Yes, we drill the wells and complete the loop field.  A heating contractor does the actual system and hook up.

What are my options if I continue running out of water in my well?

  1. Drill well deeper if current well is worthy
  2. Hydro frack well if accessible and 300ft or deeper
  3. Drill a new well.
