Want A Water Well On Your Property? How Water Wells Work And Different Types Of Water Wells

Industrial & Manufacturing Blog

If you would like to have a water well on your property, below is information on how water wells work. You will also find information on different types of water wells available for you. 

Water Well

A water well company will come to your property to drill down into the soil. They keep drilling until they access water, which is known as the water table. Once the water is accessed, the company installs the water well. The top of the well is above the ground. The water well company puts a tight seal, also known as a cap, over the well to prevent something from getting into the well. You should also make sure nothing is near the water well, such as fertilizers, oils, gas, etc.

The water well company will suggest where the water well should be placed on your property. Where this is will depend on how large your property is. The well will be placed in an area where you can easily access it but will not be close to your home, if possible.

Types of Water Wells

There are two main types of water wells: drilled and driven. With a drilled well the water well company uses a rotary drilling machine to dig down into the soil. With this, the company installs a casing and screen to prevent the soil from collapsing. The casement is surrounded by cement or another type of grouting material to stop sediment and other materials from getting into the water.  The drilling machine can dig deep into the ground and will work well no matter what size of home you have or how many people live in your home. 

A driven well is installed by hand commonly with a sledgehammer or a backhoe. The sledgehammer or backhoe will be used until it reaches water. A pipe is then installed, and a hand pump is placed on the end of the pipe. The contractor will pump water until they see clear, clean water. If you have a large family a driven well may not provide you with enough water. If you have a smaller house and a small family, it should provide you with the water you need. This type is much less expensive than other types.

The water well company that you hire can give you much more information on water wells and how they work. This company can also suggest the best type you should install on your property.
