Water Well Drilling

What is "Well Drilling?"

Well Pump Installation

What Is A "Well Pump?"

The well pump, or water pump, is the heart of the system. It is what pumps water upward and into the household or designated water system. Well pumps rely on centrifugal force in order to force water upward. Spinning rotors, known as impellers, create a vacuum that forces water upward through the well casing and into the distribution system. The type of pump required for a well system would depend on the depth of the well and the amount of water required for the household.

Geothermal Drilling

What Is "Geothermal Drilling?"

Geothermal energy is heat energy generated and stored in the Earth. Thermal energy is the energy that determines the temperature of matter.
Geothermal drilling is the process of creating boreholes in the earth to extract the earth’s heat.

Geothermal Loop Installation

What Is "Geothermal Loop Installation?"

Once installed, the loop in a Geothermal system remains out of sight beneath the Earth’s surface while it works unobtrusively to tap the heating and cooling nature provides.
The length of the loop depends upon a number of factors, including the type of loop configuration used; a home’s heating and air conditioning load; soil conditions; local climate; and landscaping. Larger homes with larger space conditioning requirements generally need larger loops than smaller homes. Homes in climates where temperatures are extreme also generally require larger loops.

Well Pump Repair

Do I Need "Well Pump Repair?"

If you’re experiencing problems such as decreased water pressure, dirty water, air or odd noises coming from the faucet, you may have a well pump problem. Unusually high electric bills may be a clue as well. This could indicate that your pump is running continuously to maintain water pressure. Anything that puts a strain on the pump can cause a premature failure. While these are obvious problems, there are other problems that may be a bit less obvious and may need some investigation to diagnose and repair.

Grundfos Constant Pressure Pump System

What Is A "Grundfos Constant Pressure Pump System?"

Constant Pressure Pump Systems use variable speed technology to eliminate fluctuations in water pressure. The speed of the pump changes to meet the demand for water, while keeping pressure constant throughout the system. The Grundfos CME Plus makes it possible to customize water pressure by the touch of a button.
