If you build a home in a rural area, you know that one of the tasks you will have to take on is having a water well drilled. Rural areas often don’t have access to pretreated water, and therefore have to create their own supply by having a well drilled. What happens when you are moving to a rural area, but are buying an existing house? Obviously there will be a well there already, so you will not be charged with the task of hiring water well drillers, but how do you know that that well is in good condition and the water is clean, safe, and usable? If the home is a little on the older side, you might be worried about the condition of the well. Even if the home is fairly new, if you didn’t drill the well yourself, you might have some concerns about safety.
You might not need to hire water well drillers when you are moving onto a property with an existing well, but you will at the very least want to hire someone to conduct a thorough set of tests on your well water. If the property and the well are fairly new, there is a good chance you won’t find anything of concern, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be cautious. There could be contaminants even in a newer well, due to changes in ground composition or poor well placement in the first place. It’s always best to be cautious, and the truth of the matter is that when your water comes from a well, you will have to have it tested at regular intervals anyway, so you might as well get the first test done before you move in.
If you are moving onto an older property, it will be very important to have the well water tested, and have the structural integrity of the well itself looked at as well. Sometimes, due to environmental changes over time, older wells will begin to dry up, or might have unwanted substances seeping into the water. Sometimes it is possible to correct these issues, but other times water well drillers need to be brought in to drill a new well. Bringing water well drillers might be frustrating, but at least you’ll know your well is safe and clean again, and this way, because the well will be brand new, you will get more years of use out of it.
Water well drillers charge for their services, even if the well they drill turns up dry. Save time and money by having a seismoelectric survey completed before the drillers arrive. This survey will not only pinpoint a water source, it will also tell you the depth and yield. We have years of experience and use modern technology to find clean, deep, useable water sources on your property. If you have to call water well drillers, call us first.
