What to Look for in Texas Well Drillers

Not all Texas well drillers are created equal. Your choice in the company that you choose to work with could be the difference between the success and failure of your venture. If you are planning on hiring Texas well drillers, it is important that you factor in the following considerations:

  • State of the art technology: State of the art technology is one of the most important things that Texas well drillers need to have. High quality technology solutions can help you better assess the land you are drilling and it will also help you be more accurate and efficient. Both of these factors will help you make your budget and save money on the overall cost of the drilling project.
  • A track record of success: If you want to be successful with your venture, you need to surround yourself with companies that have a track record of success. Ask for references.
  • Accreditation: Working with Texas well drillers that are accredited by the Better Business Bureau and hold all the necessary industry certifications can give you peace of mind in knowing that you are working with reputable company that can help you meet all of your drilling needs.

What Texas Well Drillers Can’t Do

Once you have researched and decided on your Texas well driller of choice, you are ready to have them drill your well, right?  Actually no.  Texas well drillers, like all other drillers, charge by the foot – even if they drill a dry well.  You see, they cannot guarantee that they will find water.  They try their best, of course, and have some methods for estimating where an underground water source is, but you are taking a big (and expensive) risk in allowing Texas well drillers to drill for water on your land without first calling a water surveyor.

Water surveyors differ from drillers in that they find the best spot for the drillers to work.  Unlike the good old days when diving rods (water witching) was used to find groundwater,  today’s water surveyors use sophisticated technology, like the GF3500 seismoelectric survey instrument.  The GF3500 detects electrical signals generated by the passage of seismic impulses through layered rocks, sediments and soils. When used with a seismic source, the surveyor can not only detect groundwater, but also estimate the yield and flow.

Drilling water wells is expensive.  You don’t want to suffer the disappointment of having to pay for a dry well and the extra expense of having a yet another hole drilled at an additional cost.  When you call a water surveyor before you call Texas well drillers, you save time, money, and stress.  If you need a well, call a water surveyor today.

Save time and money by knowing where the water is before you drill your well.  Contact American Water Surveyors at: Call: 877-SEISMO1 (734-7661) or 817-788-5716 Fax:  817-210-4225 mail: info@wefindwater.com
