Water Well Tips

Tips on selecting a Water Well Contractor.
Your new water well may in fact be a large investment.
We feel that to have clean sediment free well water is one of the most important assets to your home and property.
When getting a bid for your new water well:

  • Ask for contractors license number.
  • Make sure the contractor is currently licensed in your state.
  • Ask for referrals of customers who have had water wells similar to your proposed well.
  • Explain to the contractor that you plan to contact these referrals and
  • Review the "state reports" on these wells via public information.
