What you should know about water wells

How we get ground water

Potential threats to ground water

Most well water is good quality because of the filtering process in the soil and the long travel time underground between the water occuring as rain which eventually reaches the well. However, in addition to possible pollution from agriculture, industry and transportation, even contamination sources in our homes can pose threats to ground water. Incorrect disposal of common household chemicals (polish, thinners, paints, etc.), excess use of lawn chemicals, pesticides and garden chemicals, faulty or overladed septic tanks, or an accidental spill during an automobile driveway oil change, can wreak havoc with drinking water safety.

See What Our Customers Are Saying About Us

I recently had a bad experience with a well issue for a bank owned property. It was constant confusion, missed and rescheduled appointments and an all-around bad experience. So, I was worried about who to call with our own well because of that. My friend recommended me to Cushing and Sons and am glad I called you too install our new well.
