Uncommon Sense: Well Reliability

Most of the wells I have drilled in the valley would be considered lifetime wells.  There are several little known methods used to determine the stability of a water source.  In observance of these principals I had become known as Deep Dave.  However, during the recent drought I had only one shallow well go dry.  The methods used to determine the reliability of a water source are logical and what should be considered common sense.  They take only a little thought, forethought and the willingness to take the time to do the testing. I have had only a hand full of wells we drilled go dry in over 30 years.  I believe all those customers had been made aware of the situation but they decided to take a chance.  Additionally a notation was made on the well log that the water may be seasonal or not considered reliable.  I will refrain from expounding on the techniques used as they would appear to be a proprietary trade secret.  If you are concerned about your well going dry, please bring your well log to our office for a free, no obligation review. — David Nequette
