Wells Are the Source of Life

Water is essential for every living thing. Since ancient times, people have tried numerous ways to pump water out of the earth so they could use it to drink, wash, water crops, and give water to their animals. In early days, people simply dug a hole deep enough to hit the water table. They attached buckets to ropes and used them to haul up the water.

Some older homes still have old-fashioned hand pumps that use manual power to move water from the ground and into the garden or kitchen. In some rural areas of the country, people still use hand pumps. However, they’re not ideal for large-scale use.

Pumps and Switches

Today’s modern wells use electricity to move water up from the water table. There are two types of pumps used in most wells:

  • Jet pumps, which are placed above the ground and use suction to pull water out of shallow wells.
  • Submersible pumps that use centrifugal force to push water up from deep wells.

There’s no reason to go without water for a single day. With our help, you can rely on your well as a source of clean, fresh water for all your residential, commercial, or agricultural needs.

Wells: FAQ

Q. What Information do you need before you can drill a well?

A. You need to know where you ‘d like the well placed, but your idea of the perfect location may not work when it’s time to drill. You also must know the depth of the water table and the diameter of the well.

Q. What do you need for a complete well system?

As you probably realize by now, a working well is a lot more complicated than a hole in the ground with a bucket. Besides the drilling or digging, you will also need:

  • Well casing
  • Well pump
  • Electrical wiring
  • Pressure tank
  • Switch
  • Permits
  • Storage tanks

The type of storage tanks you’ll need depend on how much water your well pumps and how deep it is.

Q. What is the water table?

The water table is a line beneath the surface of the earth that is saturated with water. Pockets of water beneath soil and rocks are known as aquifers. Some water has been stored in aquifers for thousands of years. This is known as fossil water.

Q. How deep do you need to drill for a well?

A well professional can help you decide how deep it needs to be. Driven wells can be as deep as 50 feet below the ground, while drilled wells can be 400 feet or more below the surface. Our technicians use a casing to keep dirt from falling into your well. Once it’s drilled, we install the well pump.

Q. Do you need a permit for well drilling on your own property?

Nebraska law requires a permit to dig a well. You must get the permit from your local Natural Resources District. 

It also requires a well registration with the Department of Natural Resources.
