Because this seal is so critical to protecting your artesian well from these and other pollutants, Cushing & Sons guarantees the seal in writing.
We also provide a 5-year warranty on pumps and pressure tanks as well as a 1-year "turn-key" warranty on all parts and workmanship.

Location of the well
Numerous factors affect location and the cost of a water well. These factors include geological conditions, topography, location of driveways and other structures, plus local, state and federal regulations. Cushing & Sons is a third-generation company. Because we have drilled so many wells in NH, VT and MA, we have an enormous amount of data plus the intuitive experience to help locate your well on your property to maximize its delivery of water to your home or business.
Basically there are four important considerations for siting a water well:
Fast, efficient drilling
Cushing & Sons uses modern, powerful pneumatic hammer drilling equipment. Usually we are able to complete the drilling in one day. As a result there's no waiting nor tying up your yard or work site.
Getting water from bedrock is accomplished by creating fractures in the bedrock. Our standard equipment delivers up to 350 lbs/in fracturing power. This will normally yield sufficient water yields. However, when it's necessary to increase water yields, a technique called "hydrofracking" is employed which delivers up to 5,000 lbs/in pressure. This opens and cleans sediments from existing fissures and creates larger fractures in the bedrock to increase water flow into the well. Hydrofracking can also be completed in one day.
