What Is a Drilled Well?

A drilled well consists of a hole bored into the ground, with the upper part being lined with casing. The casing prevents the collapse of the borehole walls and (with a drive shoe or grout seal) prevents surface or subsurface contaminants from entering the water supply. The casing also provides a housing for a pumping mechanism and for the pipe that moves water from the pump to the surface.
Ground water from deep, drilled wells is naturally filtered and is cool, natural, and pure. However, very little ground water is polluted, and if so, in most cases it is easily and affordably treated. By contrast, most surface water (lakes and rivers) is severely polluted and must be treated before drinking.

Ground water is a renewable, reliable resource. Deep drilled wells recharge themselves. A deep drilled well will not fluctuate with dry weather and provides a constant, steady supply of water.

"Dear Water Specialist,

The improvement in water delivery at our home is almost beyond description. Faced with re-drilling our existing well deeper, drilling a new well, or refracting, we chose refracting based upon the lengthy and detailed telephone discussion I had with you. Thanks for explaining the process in considerable detail and in laymen's terms.

Beyond my satisfaction with the overall program, I'd be remiss in not mentioning the manner in which (your men) went about the business of getting us water. (The crew), working in a restricted space, with at times stubborn equipment, and contending with rain, went about their work in a most professional manner. Additionally, each took time to explain the various steps of the process, adding confidence to our decision to refract. The Water Specialist can be justly proud of these two men.

Thanking you for your professionalism, we wish you and your staff continued success."
