How Well Drilling Services Create Water Wells
For people who live far away from municipal water systems, water wells are essential. Traditional water wells were created by digging holes in the ground until the holes started filling with water. Today’s wells are created by well drilling services.
The video on this page gives a great overview of how wells are created and how they work.
Drilled wells are the most expensive and most reliable wells available. A well drilling service can bore through layers of dirt and rock to reach deep underground aquifers. These vast water resources are more resilient than higher stores of groundwater.
A well created by a well drilling service usually includes a well casing. This casing keeps dirt and rocks out of the well and ensures that even a narrow well can last for a long time without collapsing. The bottom of a well casing is screened so water can flow into the well but rocks can’t enter it. Inside the screen is a pump that pushes water up through a pipe and into a pressure tank. The pressure tanks allows the pump to rest more frequently, extending its lifespan.
