Three Reasons to get the DVD “Water Well Basics: How a Water Well is Drilled”

More than 50 per cent of the United States population relies on groundwater for drinking water, especially those who live in rural areas. However, the number one user of groundwater is the agriculture industry, as it uses water to irrigate crops. Groundwater can be found almost everywhere, and the speed at which it flows depends on the size of the spaces in the soil or rock and how well these spaces are connected. Rain and snow melt that seeds down into the cracks of the land’s surface is how groundwater supplies are replenished. There are two ways to extract this water — naturally through springs, lakes and streams, or artificially through a well or pump.

Drilling for water can be expensive, so we have put together a DVD to help you understand the process and save you money on your project.


Here are three reasons why you need Water Well Basics: How a Water Well is Drilled.

Save Money Many homeowners across the United States are turning to well water over the municipal supply for financial advantages. Once your private water well is drilled, you no longer have to pay costly monthly water bills because the water pumped from the ground is free — no matter how much water you use! You will have to budget for periodic well maintenance and a filtration system, but a private well is a long-term investment with a definite financial return. Our DVD explains how your water well will be drilled. Understanding the process helps you select the best driller for your property.

Better Health The municipal water supply is treated with chlorine, fluoride, and other chemicals that add to the overall flavor of the water. This is why people buy filtration systems for their kitchen sinks or prefer bottled water (even though plastic bottles have a significant environmental impact). Well water has a softer and milder taste, which many private well owners find cleaner and more refreshing, because of the natural filtration process that the aquifers provide. Imagine if you could have access to water that not only tastes better but isn’t full of chemicals, 24-hours a day every day of the week! This is what you can enjoy if you drill a water well on your property. Learn how with our DVD Water Well Basics: How a Water Well is Drilled.

Sustainability As briefly mentioned in reason #2, those who do not like the taste of tap water will often turn to other alternatives such as bottled water. However, it takes approximately 450 years for a plastic water bottle to decompose in a landfill. Not only is water from a well a more eco-friendly alternative to bottled water, it is also has less of an impact than the municipal supply.

Three Reasons to Get the Book What You Should Know Before You Drill a Water Well

When it comes to drilling wells, there are many more ways to do it wrong than to do it right. That is why we here at American Water Surveyors have decided to write the literal book on well drilling. The book, What You Should Know Before You Drill a Water Well, talks about everything that you need to know as someone needing a well drilled on your property, from cost to technology and what to expect from the experience. Here are just a few ways in which our book will help you get the well you need.

  1. Learn the terminology

Like every specialized trade out there, water finding and well drilling get very technical very quickly. For most people, that means they can’t fully understand what’s being communicated with them simply because they are unfamiliar with the terms and lingo used by professionals. What You Should Know Before You Drill a Water Well gives you a walkthrough of the processes and language used by well water experts, so you can talk with them about what they are doing and help yourself understand what’s happening.

  1. Learn About the Process

Technology has come a long way when it comes to water finding and well drilling. Back in the day, it consisted of little more than someone making a guess, drilling down and testing the results. Today, advanced leaps in seismoelectric technology means professional water finders can determine the source and reliability of a water source before drilling.

We use a patented machine called a GF3500 that shoots special pulses down into the earth. These pulses give back readings that detect water bearing zones underground, between the rock and soil. By reading these pulses, a water finding expert will determine the reliability, draw, and potential of an underground water source. That means when you do drill, the source is more likely going to provide a clean and reliable water source that does not run dry in a few years.

With our many years of experience, we have seen too many property owners rely on guess work or “water witching” to find a well site. Our book takes the guess work out of the equation so you can save time and money when drilling a well, and get a well with the depth and volume you need.

  1. Save Money

The best thing this book can do for you is help you save money. In the early chapters of What You Should Know Before You Drill a Water Well, you will learn how to save money more than anything else. The book shows you the most effective ways to find water and drill wells. Effective planning means saving money because well drillers charge by the foot. If a technician drills a dry well, you still have to pay the driller, so knowing where the water is means big savings. Having a reliable well saves on a re-drilling too, since a properly sourced well should not quickly run dry.
