Why Choose Well Drilling?

Independence and Control

One of the top advantages of having a well is being independent of municipal water sources. With a well, you aren’t reliant on the city or county for your water supply. This means no worrying about water restrictions during drought periods or dealing with disruptions if the main lines need repairs. Your well water is yours to use and enjoy without restrictions.

Consistent Quality

Well, water often surpasses the quality of tap water. It’s naturally filtered as it percolates through layers of soil and rock, removing impurities. This typically results in cleaner, fresher-tasting water right out of your faucet. Many wells in Palm Bay produce soft water with fewer minerals and chemicals compared to treated municipal sources. 

Cost Savings Over Time

While drilling a new well does require an initial investment, it pays for itself in the long run through lower water bills. Once installed, your well is essentially a lifetime supply of water without monthly usage fees. When you factor in not paying connection charges or impact fees for public water, the cost savings add up. Many of our customers end up saving thousands over the years. 

Controlled Water Pressure

Water pumps or a well pump can be adjusted to provide water pressure exactly where you need it throughout your home or business. This ensures a strong, consistent flow without any disruptions. Municipal water pressure can fluctuate with demand, but your well pressure stays within your control.

Reliability During Emergencies  

Well water keeps flowing even during hurricanes, tropical storms or other natural disasters that can disrupt piped infrastructure. This is critical for ensuring access to water for drinking, cooking, and sanitation when public systems may be compromised. Self-sufficient well owners gain peace of mind from this reliable backup source.

Hopefully, this gives you a sense of why so many Palm Bay residents and commercial clients appreciate the value of well water. It truly is a worthwhile long-term investment.

What to Expect from the Well Drilling Process

The Initial Site Assessment

Our first step to evaluating your property to find the best location. Well drilling contractors will consider factors like distance from structures, depth to the water table and any underground obstacles. This assessment helps them create a good design tailored to your land. 

Preparing the Drill Site  

Once the well drilling contractor has chosen the well site, it’s time to get the area cleared and leveled for safe drilling operations. They may also install temporary fencing for your protection. Don’t worry – they clean up before leaving each day.

Drilling Begins

Using a specialized rig, drilling companies start drilling the hole into the ground. This can take a full day or more depending on the depth needed. As they drill, they add sections of steel pipe called casing to line the hole and prevent collapse.

Setting the Screen & Filter Pack

At the water-bearing formation, they carefully install the well screen – a specialized pipe with small slots to filter and collect water while keeping dirt and debris out. Then they add filter pack sand around it for additional straining.

Development & Testing

To clear the well and establish an effective connection with the aquifer, drillers develop it using a surge block, jetting or airlift method. Then it’s tested to measure yield and water quality before final construction. 

Pump Installation & Disinfection

Once testing is complete, they safely lower the submersible pump into the well casing and connect it to your plumbing. The well is then disinfected to kill any bacteria before use.

Every step is carefully monitored by the experienced crew to ensure your well is built to the highest standards. If you need more explanation information about the drilling process, including deeper wells, don’t hesitate to give our team a call.

My name is Josh and I am the owner of PSL Water Guy. I got into water treatment a few years back when I realized I wanted better water for my home and my family. What started as a simple upgrade to my home became a passion for providing better water throughout Saint Lucie County. While Saint Lucie does a great job of treating and disinfecting local city water, legal limits of chemicals do remain in the water. Additionally, well water users struggle with iron and sulfur rich water. Whether city or well water, a home, or a business, PSL Water Guy has worked hard throughout the years to perfect water treatment options and is ready to bring you the best water possible!
