FAQs about Water Well Drilling

As a company that specializes in water well drilling in Northfield and the surrounding areas, we are often asked the same questions about the well drilling process. So we thought we would take the time to answer some of the most frequently asked questions about this popular service.

Q: How long does water well drilling take?

A: The duration of our water well drilling services vary from job to job. There are a few different factors that could determine how long the job will take, including how deep the well is going to go. Generally speaking though, a well usually only takes a day or two to drill.

Q: How do you determine where to drill my well?

A: The location of your new well also depends on several different factors, including geologic formations and conditions. Another factor is the landscape and hydro-geology of the area too. But don’t worry! Our water well drilling experts know exactly what to look for and what to consider when determining where to drill.

Q: How deep will my well go?

A: This is another “it depends” answer. The depth of your well will also depend on the geology and hydro-geology of the landscape. The location of underground aquifers also plays a part. Aquifers are underground areas where water is naturally stored.

Q: How do you know how much water I’ll need?

A: Our water well drilling experts will also consider several different factors to determine this. For example, how many people are in your household? Do you have any irrigation or sprinkler systems that need water? What about a residential fire sprinkler that uses water? We will also determine if you have any livestock that needs water on a regular basis, but the general rule of thumb is 100 gallons of water per day per person.

Q: When will you install the pump?

A: Our water well drilling experts will install your water pump after the water well drilling process is over. We will determine what size pump your new water system will need, and the actual installation process will occur soon after the well is drilled.

Q: How often should I have my well water tested?

A: You should have your well water tested at least once a year to ensure there are no problems with it.
