WELL DRILLING

  • Whether building a new home or making updates to an old home, deciding where to place a new well on your property is a difficult decision, especially when there are nearby structures or roads that limit well placement. New Hampshire, Massachusetts and local water, planning and health boards all have their own well regulations. Knowing the required setbacks and other regulations can help homeowners find a suitable spot on their property for the new well. Contact well water specialists, like Skillings & Sons, are also familiar with local regulations and can help homeowners locate their well.


  • When drilling a new well for your home or business, the depth of the well depends on the geology and underground water levels of the area. Well drilling companies like Skillings and Sons use their expertise, experience, and educated guesswork to determine how deep the well needs to be. Because the depth of the well can affect the price, it’s important to find a company with the skills to give you an accurate estimate before drilling starts.
