We Find Water

Oklahoma Well Drillers

There are over 250 Oklahoma well drillers listed in the Manta online directory. That is a lot to choose from.
Drilling a water well is a very costly undertaking that makes people understandably nervous. In 2009, several people participated in an online forum where the cost of hiring Oklahoma well drillers was discussed. The general consensus was to budget about $10,000 for a well and septic service. Several participants were searching for good referrals for Oklahoma well drillers and were concerned about water being found on the first try. When you are looking at large budget figures, the thought of having to drill in several locations before water is found is very daunting; Oklahoma well drillers get paid whether or not water is found.
To save time and money, you should know where the water is before you dial Oklahoma well drillers. After all, with over 250 in the Oklahoma area alone, you could go through a lot of drillers before you find one that you are happy with. Take the frustration out of the equation by using the services of American Water Surveyors. That way, no matter which driller you choose, you can be assured of drilling a flowing well on the first try. We wrote the book, “What You Should Know Before You Drill a Water Well”, for people who are considering drilling a well.
American Water Surveys saves you valuable time and money by showing you exactly where to drill. Not only can we find water, we can also estimate the depth and yield. We use the technologically advanced GF3500 seismoelectric survey system. The GF3500 is designed specifically for detecting electrical signals generated by the passage of seismic impulses through layered rocks, sediments and soils. Simply put, this is a device that will find water through any combination of rock, dirt, clay, sand, or other sediment.
Oklahoma well drillers provide a valuable and necessary service. However, well drilling is costly. Do not take chances and gamble with your hard earned money. Call American Water Surveyors so you can tell your driller exactly where the water is. Calling American Water Surveyors is a call that will save you money and guarantee your peace of mind.

Water Well Drillers: A Different Kind of Hero

When you think of the word hero, you think of an individual that was distinguished in war or performed a feat of bravery. There are many heroes, however, whose praises seldom – if ever – are sung. Among this humble group are water well drillers.
I am sure you are wondering why water well drillers could be considered heroes. Well, consider for a moment that you were not located near a clean source of drinking water. What would you do? You would have to travel to find water because you simply could not survive without it. If you were in a densely populated area, others would be travelling to this same water source for drinking, bathing and washing. Water would be a very precious commodity, one worth fighting or perhaps even dying for. The lack of access to clean water would affect your entire nation. As mentioned on a recent Stuff You Should Know podcast, hosts Josh Clark and Charles Bryant pointed out that if your population is spending hours a day travelling to and transporting water, there is no time left for development. Valuable time is used to simply work on survival.
Water well drillers working with the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA)/Sudan have been drilling in the war and drought ravaged regions of the White and Blue Nile States along with the Kordofan State for the last 18 years. In the summer of 2004, three water well drillers on the ADRA/Sudan project were detained and some of their expensive drilling equipment was taken. Although the drillers were later released, much of their equipment was not recovered or was returned too damaged to use.
Even though Americans live in a land where clean drinking water is easy to obtain – so easy in fact that we often waste it – we should never take for granted the role water well drillers play in our lives. In North America they allow this life sustaining fluid to flow for everyone, regardless of income or status. In developing countries, water well drillers literally sustain life, even when it could cost them their own.
American Water Well Drillers knows the value of clean, sustainable drinking water and the price some must pay to obtain it. That is why we use the latest technology to locate quality water sources before the drillers come to dig. We respect water; we respect your right to have access to water, and like our slogan says: we find water.

Water Well Drilling

Water Well Drilling
Humans and animals need water. That is a simple fact of life. We simply cannot survive without it. Where clean, fresh drinking water is available in abundance, it is easy to take our water supply for granted. Even in America, however, obtaining fresh water is not as simple as turning on a tap. Water must be sourced and that is where water well drilling comes into play.
Water well drilling originates from another type of well drilling – salt. Levi Disbrow, who is credited with being among first professional water well drillers in America, studied and implemented methods used in the salt industry. Another pioneer of water well drilling was Edwin L. Drake whose pipe method separated water from other contaminates. (Drake would go on to be a successful oil driller as well.)
Disbrow and Drake used simple methods for water well drilling in the 1800s and as recent as 20 years ago, drilling 100 feet was considered an accomplishment. Comparatively, today’s technology allows for a drill to pass through 500 feet of rock with ease.
Thankfully technology in finding water has evolved alongside the technology used in water well drilling.
If you think of a dowser as someone who goes over land with a Y shaped stick to find water (also known as water witching), think again! Divination for water is the “technology” of the past. The GF3500 seismoelectric is the way of the future.
As wonderful as it is to have the ability to drill through solid rock, the time and expense is wasted if water is not found. Thanks to instruments like the GF3500 seismoelectric, we have the ability to find water sources before the well is drilled. The combined use of the GF3500 along with a seismic source can estimate the both the location and the quality of a water source.
Water well drilling has come a long way but its success is still dependent on water being at the bottom of the well. American Water Surveyors takes the guesswork out of the equation and that saves you valuable time and money. Using the latest in technology combined with years of industry experience allows American Water Surveyors to do what they do best – find water.
