How do you know how much water the well will produce?
There is no definite answer to this question. We are estimating the flow based on what we see flowing from the well. Sometimes, the air pressure in the well can “hold back” on the flow, causing us to underestimate the production capacity. To overcome this, we can release the air pressure for a few minutes, and then reapply it after the well has built up a large volume. We then would see the volume of water that the well produced after several minutes. Then with simple math, we can calculate the production capacity. But it is also important to understand that the well production can also vary over time. So the well may produce more or less water in the future than it does today.
What are some of the basics of a water well?
A well is a bored hole in the ground. Steel or plastic well casing will be placed in the bore hole to support unstable earth formations. A seal is placed at the bottom of the casing to prevent contamination into the well from surface water. The stable formation beneath the casing is often the water bearing zone. In this zone a liner and gravel pack may be installed depending on the formation. After completion the well is then tested for water yield. This is done by either blowing air into the well or bailing the well. Your contractor may also perform some basic water quality tests at this point. Once construction has been completed your contractor will produce a well log which acts as a blue print for both the earth formation they encountered and a build sheet for the well. With this well log a pump contractor can design your new pump system.
How much does it cost to drill a well?
There is never an exact number until the project is finished. Each well formation can and will be different then another. The best thing to do is when looking over a proposal from a drilling contractor make sure they have specific pricing on the following:
- Price of drilling per foot
- Price and size of casing per foot
- Cost of materials per unit such as seal, cement, etc.
- Cost of liner per foot
- Cost of development and testing.
Just a line to let you know I really appreciate the fast service your company furnished me today on my water well. I am caring for my mother who is ill and it would be a hardship to be without water for very long. I had call another company and they did not come for two days. I called your company and the men were here within an hour and half.
The truck was a nice trucked equipped with all the parts they needed to install a new pump for us and I also
appreciate the warranty you offer on the pumping equipment.
Thank you so much for coming to our rescue. I will be keeping your phone number by my phone.Marietta Kay M.
Dear Mr. Friedel:
Your men were out here today and i just wanted to tell you how professional the men were. They arrived on time fixed my well quickly and had me back in water in no time. They were polite and knowledgeable about the work they did. They left my pump area: clean, no pump or tank boxes.
Thank you for training your crews so well. They did excellent work. Again, thank you and tell the men the same.
Dear Mr. Johnnie & Wife,
A few words of thanks for getting my well in. I’m sorry I bother you all with the calls but I am so happy with the well.
A few words on the three young people you had doing the job. They are the most wonderful workers that I have seen in a long time. They are very, very, very, good and I want to come by and thank them personally.
