Well Construction

Proper well construction and continued maintenance are keys to the safety of your water supply. Hatton Water Well Service installs wells so rainwater flows away from it. Rainwater can pick up harmful bacteria and chemicals on the land’s surface. If this water pools near your well, it can seep into it and potentially cause health problems. Hatton's water-well drillers and pump-well installers are bonded and insured.

Keeping Your Well Safe

To keep your well safe, be aware if any possible sources of contamination are nearby. Hatton Water Well Service checks with your local health department or environmental program for setback requirements. Possible sources of contamination could include:

  • Septic tanks

  • Livestock yards, silos, septic leach fields

  • Petroleum tanks, liquid-tight manure storage, and fertilizer storage and handling

  • Manure stacks

Water Testing

The National Ground Water Association (NGWA) recommends well owners test their water at least annually for bacteria, nitrates, and any contaminants of local concern. More frequent testing should be considered if:

  • There is a change in the taste, odor, or appearance of the well water, or if a problem occurs such as a broken well cap, inundation by floodwaters, or a new contamination source

  • The well has a history of bacterial contamination

  • The septic system has recently malfunctioned

  • Family members or house guests have recurrent incidents of gastrointestinal illness

  • An infant is living in the home, or

  • To monitor the efficiency and performance of home water treatment equipment.

Typical additional tests are those for pH, hardness, iron, manganese, sulfides, and other water constituents that cause problems with plumbing, staining, water appearance, and odor. Changes in these constituents also may indicate changes in your well or local groundwater. Additional tests may be recommended if water appears cloudy or oily, if bacterial growth is visible on fixtures, or water treatment devices are not working as they should. 

Cleaning Your Well System

Hatton Water Well Service is equipped to properly clean your water well. Well cleaning may require removing debris from the well bottom or cleaning other components of the well. Hatton Water Well Service may need to brush and clean the well casing to remove any accumulation of solid material and flush the gravel pack and aquifer surrounding the well casing.


Water intakes may likewise be brushed and cleaned. Open borehole wells can be cleaned by carefully jetting the borehole walls to loosen the debris, which then can be evacuated from the well.

Any water treatment devices that are part of your water well system should be checked and serviced according to specifications. A water treatment device that is not regularly maintained can harbor harmful bacteria.
