Upgrading Your Well


Well construction practices have changed over time. If your well is older, poorly constructed, close to a possible contaminant source, at risk from flooding, or not producing adequate water supplies, you may want to upgrade your well. Also, if you have problems with your dug well, you might consider a drilled well. Shallow, or dug wells less than 6 meters (20 feet) deep are at higher risk of contamination than deeper wells because a shallow well will draw water from closer to the surface where it can be contaminated more easily. There are many cost effect solutions to bringing these problem wells to meet the current groundwater regulations. 


Contact our qualified staff of pump installers and water treatment specialists to learn how you can make improve your well and make it safer, healthier  and  in compliance with our local ground water regulations.

Sometimes my water is cloudy can you help?


Turbidity: Cloudy Water At one time or another, most consumers have encountered water that appears cloudy or foggy. This characteristic is due to turbidity: the presence of finely divided solid particles in water. These particles may be inorganic mineral matter which does not dissolve, or organic matter that has been picked up as the water flows over and through the ground. The particles cause the scattering and absorption of light rays, which gives the water a cloudy appearance.

Whether turbidity is due to suspended organic or inorganic matter, it can cause staining of sinks and fixtures, and the discoloration of laundered fabrics. Inorganic turbidity can have an abrasive effect on plumbing systems and may cause physical wear or erosion on pipes and fittings. Turbidity is most commonly found at taps whose source is surface water from lakes, streams, or ponds.

Monthly Laugh


A doctor and a lawyer were talking at a party. Their conversation was constantly interrupted by people describing their ailments and asking the doctor for free medical advice. After an hour of this, the exasperated doctor asked the lawyer, "What do you do to stop people from asking you for legal advice when you're out of the office?"

"I give it to them," replied the lawyer, "and then I send them a bill."

The doctor was shocked, but agreed to give it a try. The next day, still feeling slightly guilty, the doctor prepared the bills.

When he went to place them in his mailbox, he found a bill from the lawyer.
