Three Great Reasons to Call a Water Finding Company before You Call the Well Drillers in New Mexico

Summary: Looking to drill a well in New Mexico? Here is why you should call a water finding company first.

If you’re building a new home or other development in New Mexico outside of county limits where you would have been entitled to piped water, you will have to drill a well. Odds are you’ve already begun looking into the process of having a well drilled, and may have even identified a well drilling company that you’re planning on calling for the job.

But there’s another step you should be taking before you call the well driller: calling a water finding company. Even the best well drillers only specialize in drilling wells, not necessarily in finding the best locations to do so. This is especially important in New Mexico, where water levels can sometimes be low, and finding a sustainable well location can be a bit more of a challenge than it is in other locations. Water finders specialize in analyzing water depth and can recommend the best locations for deep, long-lasting wells.

Here are three great reasons to call a water finding company before you call a well driller.

Finding the Greatest Depth

A water finding expert will not only find where water is located below the surface of your property, but also has the tools, technology and expertise to determine depth. This is very important because a shallow well won’t last as long as a deep well. A deep well is also drawing water from further below the surface, which may improve purity as it is less likely to contain leeched surface chemicals and runoff. A water finding company will find the best location for your well—not just one that will work—resulting in a longer serving and more sustainable well.

Saving You Money

Having a deeper well isn’t just about convenience and sustainability, it’s also about value and cost savings. If you’re having to drill a new well every few years, you’re going to be spending an awful lot of money for the duration of time you live on or use that property. Hiring a water finding company may seem like an additional expense at first, but ultimately it is a great investment that will save you money in the long run. The cost of hiring a water finding company once will be a lot less than hiring a well drilling company every few years to provide you with a whole new well. It’s a front loaded expense that is more than worth it.

Getting the Best Use of Your Property

If you drill your well in a shallow spot and have to drill a whole new one every few years, you’re not only wasting your money, but your property space as well. Why waste your land on multiple well sites that are difficult to close up and reclaim when you can use that space for enjoyment, farming, gardening or whatever else you’d like to designate it for? Out-of-commission well sites are a waste of perfectly good land that you paid for. A water finding company will help you find the best location for your well so that your property serves you in a more productive way.

Don’t drill a well in New Mexico unless you have called a water finding company. American Water Surveyors finds water and can estimate its depth and yield by using seismic equipment. Before you drill, call us today.

Here’s How to Avoid Drilling a Dry Well in Texas

Summary: Drilling a dry well in Texas is a waste of time and money. Here are tips on how to avoid such a disaster.

Dry wells, and recently dug wells that do not have water or have unexpectedly stopped producing water, are terribly frustrating. Not only does digging that well take time but, when it dries up, all the money and effort feels like it was for nothing; and truthfully, it feels that way because it was a waste. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to avoid drilling a dry well in Texas. Here are a few such tips that can help you save time and money, and help you get a reliable water source for years to come.

  1. Learn Where the Water is Underground

This may seem like a no-brainer, but drilling for a proper well is much easier when you know the location of the water hidden underground. Finding this information can actually be a lot more complicated. Finding water is more than simply digging into the ground and hoping to hit water. It often takes scanning and surveying equipment to make the proper, educated guesses.

The guess-and-check method of finding water is one of the reasons why traditional well diggers charge by the foot rather than charging on whether or not they find water. They are often equipped with the proper equipment to make a working well structure, but rarely are properly equipped with the technology and experience to ensure those wells actually produce water.

  1. Understand What’s Beneath Your Feet

The right surveying equipment, accompanied by the latest in seismoelectric survey technology, can change the uncertainty of well digging into an almost guarantee. Water surveyors can actually measure the distance down and potential yield of a hidden underground water source with incredible certainty.

Seismoelectric surveying equipment, like the GF3500 used by American Water Surveyors, has an incredible ability to read what is hidden beneath our feet. By sending out vibrations through the ground, it can provide an accurate picture of the earth below, especially as it relates to underground water sources. These results are crucial in the efficient digging of wells, helping you spend less on unnecessary digging.

  1. Hire Qualified Water Surveyors in Texas

One of the last steps in well digging is the hiring of qualified, experienced well diggers who also use the latest technology to improve water locating. Without the right water surveying company, well diggers are often left to guess-and-check, which results in lost time and money on unnecessary digging and refilling. Fortunately, water surveyors help turn guesses into certainties. By hiring them, you can help control costs and have a well that has the depth, flow and longevity you need.

When it comes to drilling dry wells in Texas, the best course of action is to call in a professional water surveying company. Armed with the latest technology and the right expertise, they are able to pinpoint exactly where reliable sources of water hidden underground. That way, you will spend far less time and money drilling for dry wells and have a well that provides a reliable, consistent water supply for years to come.

Don’t take chances on drilling a dry well in Texas. Contact American Water Surveyors before you call the well drillers, and know exactly where the water is hiding.
