Well Drilling and Well Services

When it comes to well drilling, well assessments and well services, we are at the ready to help whether you need a brand new well, your well needs a repair, your pump needs to be replaced, or your existing well isn’t producing enough water and needs a boost.

Come Visit Our Show Room

The Water Shed carries a wide range of top quality water softeners, water treatment systems, well pumps, and other products..


If you suspect your well is damaged below the surface or you need to look inside your well, we can help.

Using a submersible camera and recording equipment, we can examine a well as deep as 500 feet!

Some common reasons to pursue a down-hole camera inspection include:

Surface water is getting into your well through a crack in the well casing.

Surface water ingress due to an incorrectly seated drive shoe.

To confirm the location of water bearing fractures for pump locating purposes.

To confirm & assist in the removal of a stuck pump or fitting.

To confirm the existence of a well collapse.

Once the problem has been diagnosed, solutions can be devised. For example, a leaking drive shoe can be sealed off. The same can be done with a cracked casing. If your pump is stuck, we can use the camera system to attempt to lasso the pump connection with a high tensile cable and then winch the pump out of the well.

The report we provide at the end of the process even includes photos and videos!
