Choosing a reliable water well company is crucial when you are planning to install, maintain, or repair a water well. Selecting the right company not only guarantees quality workmanship but also ensures the safety and longevity of your water supply. As an established expert in water well services, GeoWater Services is committed to helping Colorado communities, homeowners, and businesses make informed choices.
Here are 10 key questions to ask when hiring a water well company.
1. Are You Licensed, Bonded, and Insured?
In Colorado, well companies are required to be licensed. Reputable companies also carry insurance. Ask for proof of these fundamental credentials to ensure the company is legally recognized and operates within the state’s guidelines.
2. Can You Share Testimonials from Past Clients?
Testimonials can give you valuable insight into the company’s ability to deliver high-quality service, customer satisfaction, and reliability. Don’t hesitate to ask for this information and conduct online research about the company.
3. What Type of Equipment Do You Use?
The quality and efficiency of a water well system rely heavily on the equipment used. As GeoWater Services is an exclusive distributor of Grundfos submersible pumps, we only use the best technology available, assuring you of a reliable, efficient, and durable water supply.
4. Do You Offer Comprehensive Services?
A company that provides a “one-stop-shop” solution for all water well needs ensures consistent quality and reduces the need for multiple contractors. As a full-service provider, GeoWater Services manages all aspects, from the initial water well design and drilling process to water testing and routine maintenance and repairs, handling projects of all sizes with utmost proficiency.
5. How Do You Determine the Best Location and Depth for My Well?
A company with in-depth knowledge can effectively assess your property’s geological and topographical characteristics and guide you on the most suitable location and depth for your well. Ask them how they plan the well location and design – their answer will help you assess their expertise.
6. What are My Water Needs?
Discuss your home size, family size, and any additional water requirements, such as farming, animal husbandry, or small businesses. Most homes typically require a well water flow rate of approximately 6 gallons per minute, although this might vary depending on your specific needs.
7. Where Can I Drill the Well?
State and local guidelines govern well placement, with regulations stipulating certain setbacks from roads, property lines, wetlands, and buildings. If the well must be a considerable distance from your residence, discuss pump sizing with your well driller.
8. Can You Assist in Water Testing and Treatment?
Regular water testing is key to maintaining a clean, safe water supply. A company that offers water testing services shows their commitment to ongoing support and customer health and safety. GeoWater Services conducts water quality tests and provides solution-oriented approaches aligned with the results.
9. What is Your Pricing Structure and Terms?
While the quality of service should be a top priority, understanding the cost and terms of service is also crucial. Make sure all charges are transparent and clarified upfront to avoid unexpected expenses later.
10. What’s Covered in the Contract?
An itemized list should outline the work items and cost of services. This contract should include the type of well to be drilled, estimated costs (including man-hours), and any guarantees on the work performed.
