If you’re building a new home or other development in New Mexico outside of county limits where you would have been entitled to piped water, you will have to drill a well. Odds are you’ve already begun looking into the process of having a well drilled, and may have even identified a well drilling company that you’re planning on calling for the job.
But there’s another step you should be taking before you call the well driller: calling a water finding company. Even the best well drillers only specialize in drilling wells, not necessarily in finding the best locations to do so. This is especially important in New Mexico, where water levels can sometimes be low, and finding a sustainable well location can be a bit more of a challenge than it is in other locations. Water finders specialize in analyzing water depth and can recommend the best locations for deep, long-lasting wells.
Here are three great reasons to call a water finding company before you call a well driller.
Finding the Greatest Depth
A water finding expert will not only find where water is located below the surface of your property, but also has the tools, technology and expertise to determine depth. This is very important because a shallow well won’t last as long as a deep well. A deep well is also drawing water from further below the surface, which may improve purity as it is less likely to contain leeched surface chemicals and runoff. A water finding company will find the best location for your well—not just one that will work—resulting in a longer serving and more sustainable well.
Saving You Money
Having a deeper well isn’t just about convenience and sustainability, it’s also about value and cost savings. If you’re having to drill a new well every few years, you’re going to be spending an awful lot of money for the duration of time you live on or use that property. Hiring a water finding company may seem like an additional expense at first, but ultimately it is a great investment that will save you money in the long run. The cost of hiring a water finding company once will be a lot less than hiring a well drilling company every few years to provide you with a whole new well. It’s a front loaded expense that is more than worth it.
Getting the Best Use of Your Property
If you drill your well in a shallow spot and have to drill a whole new one every few years, you’re not only wasting your money, but your property space as well. Why waste your land on multiple well sites that are difficult to close up and reclaim when you can use that space for enjoyment, farming, gardening or whatever else you’d like to designate it for? Out-of-commission well sites are a waste of perfectly good land that you paid for. A water finding company will help you find the best location for your well so that your property serves you in a more productive way.
