A Drilled Well
A drilled well consists of a hole bored into the ground, with the upper part being lined with casing. The casing prevents the collapse of the borehole walls and prevents surface or subsurface contaminants from entering the water supply. The casing also provides housing for a pumping mechanism and for the pipe that moves water from the pump to the surface.
A Well Cap
On the top of the casing should be an “approved” well cap. A properly installed well cap separates potential pollutants from your drinking water. It should fit snugly so debris, insects or small animals can’t find their way into the well system.
A Submersible Pump and Motor Installed at the Bottom of the Well
The submersible pump is controlled by a pressure switch. It’s a small electrical control unit which senses the pressure in the system and switches the pump on and off.
A Drop Pipe to Bring the Water to the Surface
Wire to Carry the Electricity Down to the Pump
A Pressure Tank
The pressure tank allows the pump to run occasionally instead of every time a faucet is opened. The basic system is often enhanced, either by necessity or for improved performance, with a constant pressure delivery system. However, the drawing below represents the most common equipment combination.
Many older wells were constructed before construction codes existed and have expansion tanks that do not have liners or are too small for the pump system they are servicing. These wells were installed before there was concern about efficiency and contamination. With a quick visual check and maybe a head pressure check on your pump, we could make recommendations that we feel would make your system more efficient and cost effective. We will explain the benefits to you or tell you if your system is sufficient for your needs by today’s standards. If you have any doubts about your system, give us a call or fill out the “contact us
