We have our own excavator and operator to provide well line trenching, well head repair and water tank burial. We also install dry well systems for water treatment discharge.

We do the digging, make the repair or install and backfill. Same crew handles it all.
Connecticut and New York have established minimum code heights requirements for well head access. All wells from 1970 and newer should be at least 12” above ground. If your well is not accessible, 12” above ground or you don’t even know where it is, give us a call. We can find your well with location equipment and raise the casing to code. The time to do,this work is BEFORE you have a no water emergency on a weekend.
A very important component to keeping your well sanitary is a vermin proof well cap. Old style vented caps allow everything from spiders to mice to enter your well head. They can damage the electrical wires and contaminate your water supply. If you are unsure of what the condition of your well head is. Just give us a call.
Low Yield Wells and Pump Protection
If you have a well that occasionally runs out of water or you would like to protect your pump system from burning out due to a leaking toilet, install a PumpTec low water cutoff. This is an electrical component that senses when the well pump is about to run out of water. This device will shut the well pump off. An internal timer will automatically turn the well pump back on after the well has been allowed to fill. These devices are cheap insurance as opposed to the major costs of a well pump replacement.
If you have a sump pump in your basement, you should check it at least every year, and replace it every 3-5 years. If your sump pump is not hooked up to an outlet that is on a generator, you should consider a battery backup system or an inverter system. These will power your sump pumps even if you don’t have power in the house. Most power outages are during stormy weather, which is when you need your sump pump to work. If you don’t have power, you don’t have a sump pump.
Consider investing a flood protection device. There are a multitude of devices that can detect water leaking on the floor and shut down the well system. There are auto valves that can shut the main water supply off. You may even get an home insurance discount after the installation is completed.
