FAQ About Water Supply, Water Well Drilling, and Drilling Contractors

If you're considering having a well drilled for your home or business, you may have a lot of questions about the process, requirements, and benefits. Below, we've provided answers to some of the most frequently asked questions from our customers about water supply, water well drilling, and drilling contractors.

From the reasons to drill a water well to the factors to consider when choosing a drilling contractor, we will cover the essentials. We will also discuss how to determine your water usage needs, how to protect your well, and more. Whether you're a homeowner or a business owner, this FAQ will help you make an informed decision about water well drilling and ensure a safe and reliable water supply for your property.

Why drill a water well?

safe and clean water supply is vital to your home or business. However, many homes are not served by public water systems. When public water systems are not an option, private water wells provide clean and safe water for many families in the area.

A professionally installed water well system raises a home's resale value significantly. Get peace of mind by bringing in an expert water well drilling team.

Can I drill my water well myself?

The first step to drill a water well is groundwater exploration, which is not a simple process. Finding the right place for your water well is incredibly important to ensure that your well produces the water needed for your home or business. We use scientific methods to locate a place that will provide the most water.

In addition to finding an adequate water source, drilled wells should be located a specific distance from sewage systems and other structures. A misplaced or improperly installed well can mean considerable costs down the line and you may need to have a professional re-install the well later.

How do you choose the right well drilling company?

First and foremost, make sure that the company is licensed and insured. Michigan state certifications ensure that companies follow safe drinking water standards. Don't immediately go for the lowest price around, since typically a discount well contractor means low-quality work. If your well does not function properly, it could collapse, resulting in costly repairs and making your house temporarily unlivable.

How much water will I use on average?

When determining your water usage needs be sure to consider not only your daily usage for cooking, bathing, and appliances but also seasonal use for things like lawn and garden watering or swimming pools.

The team at LaLone Well will consider the rate of yield for the well, the diameter and depth, as well as the standing water level in the well to determine if the well pump system will be able to meet your usage needs. A conservative estimate is that most four-person homes will need approximately 300 gallons per day as well as the ability to produce 7 gallons of water per minute.

What are irrigation wells and who would need one?

Irrigation wells supply water for lawn or field irrigation. This is an important and challenging job, as a large quantity of water is needed in a short time span. Irrigation wells need to produce enough water during peak seasons and quickly enough to maintain the sprinkler system.

Using a constant pressure system ensures a balanced and evenly distributed water flow from your irrigation system. Irrigation is important to farmers, business owners, and others who need to make sure that their property always has access to clean, safe water.

How can I protect my water well?

Regular testing and well maintenance along with quick response times to any potential problems can ensure a long and efficient life for your well pump system. We are open year-round with 24-hour emergency service to address repair issues right away and save homeowners money in the long term.

Low water pressure, increased electricity or gas bills, and odd smells coming from your water are all reasons to have your well assessed. Our team is specialized in residential-use water well and pump repair, adding special machines to our fleet to minimize lawn damage.
