Specialized Services FAQs
What Does a Water Well Consist Of?
There are some basic components found in water wells that include:
Casing: It is a cylinder structure placed in the well which maintains the well opening from the surface to the target groundwater.
Caps: These are placed on top of the casing to prevent insects, debris, or small animals from entering the well.
Screens: These are attached to the bottom of the casing to prevent too much sediment from getting into the well.
Jet pumps: These are mounted above ground and draw water from the well using suction (most commonly used for shallow wells).
Submersible pumps: The pumping unit is connected to a power source on the surface and placed inside the casing (most commonly used for deep wells).
Which Is the Best Location for a Well?
Proper well location is one of the key factors to ensure the safety of your well water. It is always recommended to locate the well in such a way that rainwater flows away from it. Rainwater can pick up harmful chemicals and bacteria from the surface of the land, and if it pools near your well, it is likely to seep into it and cause potential health risks.
