Groundwater Professionals Provide Alll Well Digging and Maintenance Services
January 1, 2016
Humans have been digging wells to get water for more than ten thousand years. Until about a hundred years ago, the technology hadn’t changed all that much and all wells were dug by hand. Digging a well is no easy matter. Finding the right location to dig isn’t simple or straightforward. So even though the digging is done nowadays by heavy machinery, expertise is the crucial ingredient.
For all well drilling services, it’s best to rely on an expert professional. Whether you’re looking for the best well digging services or need basement sump pump installation, your local groundwater professionals will get the job done.
First you have to find the water
Even though the majority of the earth’s surface is made up of water, only about 1% of this can be used. The remainder is either too salty or locked in the polar ice caps. We never think about our water consumption but it is essential for our homes, businesses, industries and farms. Each year on average the American home uses 100,000 gallons, when indoor and outdoor usage are combined. And individually, Americans use around 100 gallons of water daily.
Well digging services provide maintenance and other services as well
More than 15 million homes in the U.S. households use private ground water wells for their regular water supply. All of these private wells rely on ground water. The advantages of well water are numerous – the water is usually clean, sweet-tasting and has no additives nor artificial chemicals.
But once the well is constructed, the owner’s responsibility is far from over. It is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that the well is maintained to keep out surface water and other foreign materials that would contaminate the well and the underlying aquifer. Ground water professionals with their years of experience and expertise can help and advise owners to maintain wells properly.
Groundwater professionals provide a whole range of services, from well digging and water well sealing to water storage tanks tanks and basement sump pump installation. If you’re thinking of digging a well on your property, or need help with an existing well, call today for a consultation.
