We provide many well services that other local companies do not provide. From video well inspections to well cleaning, we have an answer for all your water well and pump system questions and concerns.
Wells need to be serviced occasionally just like the pump system. Depending on the rock formation, many wells acquire build up which can lead to poor water quality and/or poor well yield. Our proven well cleaning techniques will improve all of the above, GUARANTEED!
Well cleaning, or "well regeneration", as it's also referred to, is a state-of-the-art method to improve water quality and quantity in aging wells. Over the years, depending on your aquifer, water wells build up with iron, manganese, hardness, and sediment, among other things. Many people install water filtration inside their home which does help, but the most efficient way to reduce these water quality issues is to clean your well. Over the last 15 years we have developed proven methods to address well cleaning in North Jersey and Hudson Valley NY areas. We use EPA approved chemistry and a brushing technique to literally brush your well clean of build up. Not only will this technique improve your water quality but it will also improve the yield of your well. Feel free to contact us for a consultation. We also have references on hand.
Domestic wells should be chlorinated once every two years, and after any type of service is performed to your well. Chlorination will kill any harmful bacteria in the well that can enter your home through your plumbing. Bacteria in your water is harmful, and many homeowners are unaware they are drinking or bathing in this bacteria. We also recommend getting your water tested every two years for bacteria.

This process is in the best interest of the property owner, since a well that is not being used or is damaged can cause harm to other nearby wells that are being used for potable water. Well decommissioning is a simple process that takes 1-3 days depending on well depth. Contact us and we can go through the decommissioning process with you.

Many North Jersey and Hudson Valley NY area water wells are below grade and grandfathered in to be legal, but it is very beneficial to upgrade your well casing to 12 inches above grade. Not only is it a code in NJ and New York, but it is much more sanitary. Wells that terminate below grade are highly likely to become polluted with bacteria. They also are not accessible to be serviced. Upgrading your well is in the best interest for you and your family. Not only will the well be more sanitary but will also be more accessible when it comes to future servicing.
