Shallow Well

Pitcher Pump

Our team is capable of drilling a new shallow well on your property that does not require any power at all. Well you will need ELBOW POWER! 

We can install an Old Fashioned Pitcher Pump to supply shallow well water in your garden. 

Shallow Well Installation

Our team will drill a new shallow well on your property and make your  irrigation water bill disappear. Most shallow well pumps are installed in the service area near an air conditioner.  We recommend that a dedicated power supply for the shallow well pump be installed to an exterior wall near the pump.  This should be done by a licensed electrician. Some exterior electrical supplies are adequate, in which case, we tie into the supply without an electrician.  We are only allowed to do exterior wiring. Any interior wiring must be done by a licensed electrician and is not included in our pricing. This information is provided for your convenience and does not exclude code variations.  Local codes may vary. Any changes in code requirements may result in price adjustments.
