Need Water Well Drilling in Elko? What You Need to Know, Elko, Nevada

If your home doesn’t have access to a municipal water system, you need a well for a reliable source of water. Before you start your well installation, there are a few aspects you need to know about water well drilling. Fertig Drilling Co. has over 20 years of experience in well drilling, pump installation, and pump repair services for clients in the Elko, NV, area. Their expert contractors want you to consider the following before beginning a water well drilling project for your home.

What You Need To Know About Water Well Drilling

How Much Water Do You Need?

The first step is to estimate your average daily water usage as well as seasonal usage, such as watering your lawn. The average family of four uses approximately 400 gallons a day, with the bathroom consuming the most water. If the well cannot produce the amount you need, you should also install a storage system that will hold at least a day’s supply of water for each person in your household.

How Much Water Is Available?

Your local and state water departments should have records available about existing wells and groundwater supplies that can help you determine if well drilling on your property is viable.

What Should You Look For In A Contractor?

Whether installing a new water well or repairing an old one, you need to find the right contractor. Ask for referrals if you have friends or family who have had wells installed. Get price quotes from different well drilling companies, but remember that the lowest price doesn’t always mean you’ll get the best work. Find out if the contractor has the appropriate licenses and certifications required for your area, the right equipment for the job, and insurance to protect you in case any damage incurs during the project. Ask for a written contract that lists the details of the work, including the price, what the job entails, and the time it will take to complete the project.

Access to a reliable source of water affects your daily life, so you want to ensure your water well drilling project is done right. Call Fertig Drilling Co. at (775) 753-7960 or contact them online to discuss your well drilling needs.
