Well Drilling

We take pride in ensuring you with the best quality water possible. To do this, a ten inch diameter hole is drilled until solid bed rock is reached. A steel well casing is set into the hole, which gives a three-inch annular space. The space is then pressure grouted with bentonite or type II portland cement grout. Grouting the well casing should always be done to reduce possible contamination of the aquafer due to surface water and other contaminants possibly leaking into the well.

The bottom portion of the well is usually drilled six inches in diameter until an adequate amount of water and/or depth is obtained.

The steel well casing usually stands approximately twelve inches above the ground surface, and is sealed by a screen vented well cap. The total drilling time usually takes from one-to-three days.

How much water do I need?

This is a question that is often a concern when having a well drilled. The average person uses approximately 60-70 gallons of water per day. A family of four would use approximately 250 gallons per day. Wells that yield as little as a half a gallon per minute may be suitable for a family, however, in many cases a well does yield several gallons per minute.
