Artesian Well Drilling

Services Well Drilling Picture 1New Wells, Replacement Wells, Repair and Maintenance; We Do It All!

Artesian well drilling requires the proper equipment and experience, since most wells in New Hampshire and Vermont range between 100 and 500 feet deep. Artesian wells take their water from fractures in bedrock, which are fed from the water table in the overlaying soils. Capital Well uses the air drilling process to achieve these depths and reach adequate water-bearing fractures.

During the artesian well drilling process, once the drill reaches bedrock, tubular steel casing (tipped with a steel “drive shoe”) is installed to prevent contaminants from mixing with the water supply. The amount of casing needed varies based on the geography of each particular location. However, the minimum casing used would be forty feet. Some casings also require grout, which is an additional seal using cement bentonite. The need for grouting is also based on geography.

After the well has been drilled, a well cap will be placed on the top of the casing to prevent debris from entering the well water. The entire artesian well drilling process typically takes one to two days.

    Jonathan, I wanted to drop a couple of lines to tell you how satisfied and happy that I chose Capital Well Co. for my water needs. From your lead man Steve to your drill people, your plumbing guy and your guy on the back hoe. Everyone that cast a shadow on my door threshold were polite, professional and willing to take the time to explain and answer my questions; which were many . Jon, it was my pleasure to meet you today and pleased that you came by for a follow up visit and explain how the heater works. SO...if I get a chance to tell everyone that needs a new well, I definitely will. It is apparent there is no "I" in your team . Thank you everyone.
  • Richard Meaney

    Mr. Swain, Thank you so much for the service Capital Well provided at my home today. I left a message with you at the behest of Ed Monty. I received a prompt phone call from Greg to arrange for a service call and to discuss what might need to be done. Promptly at (actually a few minutes before) the scheduled time, Bobby showed up to perform the service. Bobby was excellent at explaining the service, why some things were needed and how the well and pump worked, and answered all of my questions to my satisfaction. All in all, this was a very positive experience for us. Thanks to you and the people at Capital Well for prompt, courteous, and efficient service.
