Water Well Drilling & Pump Contractors
Water well drilling and pump contractors must possess a lot of expertise to do what they do. They must be licensed and insured within a particular state or states. There are no minimum education requirements for this profession, but a lengthy training and work experience is a plus. These are often family businesses, with parents passing on their knowledge of the trade to their kids.
Becoming a water well and pump contractor entails on-the-job training, attention to detail, good business management, and good communication skills to deal with the public. They must have a detailed knowledge of the industry in regards to water treatment, electric equipment and systems, volume quality, drilling depth, and installation.
Some contractors offer sales of equipment, systems, and products for home or business users to install themselves if they are the handy type. But for the most part, these contractors are hired to do the job, bringing their expertise of well pumps such as high pressure, hand, and hydraulic to the table. Related fields include oil well drilling, oil well drilling mud and additives, oil well perforating, water purification, and water treatment equipment. Contractors in this profession may have backgrounds in excavation, construction, building, or engineering.
Water well drilling and pump contractors offer company services like pump repair, sales and service, estimates, irrigation, and filtration. Additional services may include 24-hour service and installation of all types of wells, from artesian to electric to geothermal. They should have extensive knowledge of all components of a well, such as hoses, drilling equipment, tanks, and filters. Consequently, they can treat and provide safe, quality drinking water for homes and businesses.
Whether customers need to excavate for a brand new well or whether they need repair on an old one, contractors can help in these circumstances.
