At this time we are only drilling water wells in New Jersey (NJ).
To get started on your North Jersey well drilling, in most cases the only thing we need from the homeowner is a survey locating the nearest septic system. The average well takes 3 days to drill and, depending on the municipality and the permit process, may take 1-3 weeks to complete (emergencies may be expedited).
Our many years of experience allows us to provide accurate costs and completion dates before the drill hits the ground. All phases of a new North Jersey well installation are handled by our drilling experts, including permits. We have a "well" maintained fleet of drilling equipment and accessories that will aid in accurate measurements, keeping your site cleaner, and a safer working environment.
In North Jersey many homes have their own potable water source, which is their water well. Over time residential water wells can fail for reasons such as lack of production, contamination, or poor water quality. Many wells drilled in the 50's, 60's, and 70's were drilled to a much different code than we have today. Therefore, they are much more susceptible to contamination, surface water, or poor water quality in general. In many cases the old well will be decommissioned and abandoned according to local codes, and a brand new well will be drilled.
A low yielding well is a nuisance! But we can deepen existing water wells in North Jersey to provide a better water yield, and more than likely encounter a satisfactory amount of water to supply your home. You can also use this water to irrigate your lawn, fill your swimming pool, and much more!
Trying to irrigate your lawn using city water is very costly, especially if you have a large yard. It may be wise to drill a well solely for irrigation. Depending on the size of the property you are trying to irrigate, drilling an irrigation well may save you money in the long run. Most customers make their money back within 10 years of drilling the irrigation well, not to mention it is a great selling point for the sale of your home in the future.
At Slater & Accurate we provide well drilling services for North Jersey industrial and commercial customers in need of a great demand of water, such as factories, chemical plants, and nurseries, just to name a few. We can also customize jobs by including services such as dust suppression and golf course retention ponds.
It is wise to know the yield of your well before you do any major renovations to your home or property. Well yield is rated by gallons per minute. If your well doesn't have a good yield it may not support a large family, multiple bathrooms, or an irrigation system. We can perform a yield test in one day.
Geothermal heating and cooling is recognized by the EPA as the most energy efficient, environmentally clean and cost effective space conditioning system available today. Geothermal drilling is a service provided by few well drilling companies. Slater & Accurate provides open and closed loop geothermal drilling in North Jersey. We can also install the heat pump system for an open loop, or install the permanent geo loop for your closed geo system. And we can work with your HVAC company or engineer to design and install a geothermal system that can take care of all your North Jersey heating and cooling needs.
