Proper Well Drilling Ensures a Safe Water Supply

water-well-drillingIf you live in a city, your water is handled by a municipal water service, which takes care of safety issues like contamination and bacterial infection. If you live in the country, however – and a number of people in the area do – then you need to rely on alternative water supplies. This can often involve a well, either one dug directly on your property or a communal well which you share with a number of other households.

Either way, such a well needs to be drilled by a company that knows what it’s doing and has the proper credentials to handle the job the right way. In so doing, you’ll guarantee that your water supply remains safe, and that no critical detail gets overlooked.

Experience Counts

A drill service starts with surveying, using modern equipment to pinpoint the most likely location for a site. It means selecting the right drilling equipment for the job, and moving effectively once drilling begins to complete the operation in an efficient manner. Once the well is dug, you need to test its depth, its rate of renewal, and the number of gallons per minute it can provide.

That requires a team with experience, who knows how to perform the operation properly: selecting the right equipment and ensuring that your new well is properly dug. Once that happens, however, the operation isn’t complete. Having accessed the water, the team now needs to determine how safe the water is, and whether that safety might be compromised in the future.

Testing and Installing

A good team will start by testing the quality of the water and look for both the presence of contaminants and the conditions that might create them. With that in mind, they can then recommend the right kind of device to put into place to correct the problem. This can include:

  • Water Purification Systems, which can include both traditional filtration systems and more modern systems that use things like UV lights to kill any germs or bacteria that may be in the water.
  • Water Softeners, which get rid of mineral deposits such as calcium and magnesium in the water. Hard water is very common in our part of the world, and while not as actively harmful as bacterial contaminants, it can still affect your quality of life dramatically.

Installing the Rest of the System

Once the team knows what your system needs, they can go about installing the necessary plumbing to properly tap into the well water. This can include things like pumps and storage tanks to provide a reservoir for your property, as well as a cap for the well itself and the underground piping required for the water main. The preparation and testing pays off during this stage, as the right components are installed to keep your water supply safe and healthy.
