Drilled wells unlike dug wells are a quick and easy way to install a well. They are usually less expensive than Dug wells and take up less room. Even drilled wells are not a 100% guarantee that you will find water but 95% of the time there is not a problem. Drilled wells have there pro’s and con’s too. Drilled wells are steel casings that are set into the earth to the bedrock elevation then a bore hole from there to the desired depth. Drilled wells are priced by the amount of drill casing that is used to reach the bedrock and the amount of depth drilled through bedrock to reach the water table with sufficient water flow. Depending on your location and particular land area the depth will vary. Drilled wells usually need in house equipment such as (water softeners) to alleviate mineral problems with the water. Drilled wells are also installed with powerful high quality submersible pumps that usually last a lifetime. Unlike in house pumps that can sometimes be less efficient and un-reliable over long periods of time. All well water is tested at Environment Nova Scotia’s lab for safe drinking water documentation, and the amount of gallons per min produced by the well is also documented.
