We Find Water

When it Comes to Choosing Among Oklahoma Well Drillers, One Option Stands Out

Having access to fresh drinking water is increasingly seen as the greatest resource in the 21st century. With a water well, the feeling of independence is combined with the taste of purity. With no more reliance on the public water system, one can enjoy this sound investment for years and decades to come. Importantly, the enjoyment, purity and independence mentioned earlier only materialize if the new well is the product of due care, diligence, patience and expertise. When considering the list of available Oklahoma well drillers, it is important to understand the process through which a service provider would go in order to see the desirable features and characteristics.
Surveying your land for water is the crucial first step that, if done in a substandard fashion, would lead to the whole endeavor’s ruin. Knowing the best possible location for your new well is just as important as constructing the right kind of well. Oftentimes, it is impossible to visually observe or take into account all of the important features that would play a role in the water well site selection. If your chosen Oklahoma well driller is suggesting that everything is clear as is and drilling and construction can start right away, rethink your choice. Diving into the project without the survey is not only dangerous, but extremely costly. Do not do it under any circumstances! Your well driller should have extensive experience with this stage. If they do not, it puts a very long shadow across their other expertise, as any water professional will tell you that surveying is no less important than the construction.
If you chose to have the survey done by one company and the drilling by another, ensure that your Oklahoma well drillers are fully licensed, certified and trained. A professional well driller knows exactly what to do with the results of the survey. It will assist them in setting out the plan for the well, designing it for your specific needs, and following all of the government regulations in place. Most experienced well drillers will be able to quickly explain such details as well depth, positioning and the difference that the type of materials can have on the end structure. All of this will play an important role in both the construction and maintenance of your well, and whether it will meet the requirements that you have – for example, whether the principal intended use, such as drinking, irrigation or tending to cattle, is answered to.
One name stands out among the Oklahoma well drillers reviewed in preparation for this blog post – take a look at American Water Surveyors. This company, based out of Texas, has the experience required at all stages of surveying, providing well drillers with an exact location to drill along with an accurate assessment of the yield and flow of the water prior to drilling. Well drillers get paid whether they find water or not. American Well Surveyors saves you time and money since with their services, your driller will know exactly where to drill. They have been operating throughout the United States for years, gathering up dozens of excited reviews from customers. Their seismoelectric surveying is unmatched and what one may call state-of-the-art; with a small margin of error, it can detect fluids in both rocks and soils. Greater accuracy means better quotes, and better quotes mean no quality is lost while the financial factor is made more manageable for users of their services (such users have, in the past, included, farmers, governments, individual home owners, and realty developers). Why not join the growing number of those who have been impressed by American Water Surveyors? Give them a call today. They will prepare and drill the well for you… extremely well (no pun intended).

What Goes Into Drilling Water Wells?

Everyone knows that we get much of our usable water, including our drinking water, from the ground. Many homes and settlements outside of the usual water grid get all of their water from water wells, allowing them to be self sufficient and avoid the very steep cost of laying hundreds of miles of pipeline. Many people assume that making a well is as simple as digging a hole in the ground and waiting for it to fill with water. The fact is that drilling water wells involves a great deal of time, hard work and careful planning in order to provide useable water.

The first, and one of the most cautious stages of drilling water wells is finding the right places for those wells to go. While most holes in the ground will strike surface water if they are deep enough, water wells do not operate with surface water, which is often contaminated by human pollution or natural waste. When locating a water well, it is vital to make certain that the well will strike an abundant source of ground water, which is found hundreds of meters underground. Ground water is pure and needs minimal treatment before being potable, or safe to drink.

The second part of drilling water wells is, of course, the drilling itself. There are several ways to drill a water well shaft. The most common way is to use a rotating drill bit to grind into the earth. As the well shaft grows, it is flooded with a substance called “drilling mud”, which helps keep the drill bit cool and lubricated as well as helping the shaft walls maintain stability before a well casing can be added. A well casing is a rigid structure that keeps the shaft from collapsing as well as keeping surface water from contaminating the well water.

Finally, once a water well has been drilled, it is necessary to maintain the well with constant monitoring and regular testing. Drilling water wells is an excellent way to obtain potable water for people or for livestock, but since it relies on a natural water source, environmental conditions can change unexpectedly. It is recommended that water from a well be tested at least once a year to be certain that the water source has not become contaminated. It is also vital to keep all of the man-made parts of a water well in good working order, as a mechanical failure can lead to a home or settlement being left without water until repairs can be made.

The science of drilling water wells has come a long way since we first discovered the wealth of water under the ground. We have gone from small, easily tainted surface wells to huge, powerful, machine-driven water wells that can meet a whole community’s needs. With careful planning and dedicated maintenance, a water well can become the heart of a home’s water system, keeping pure water flowing for the use of everyone who lives there. Just remember to get your well water tested on a regular basis!
