What is the difference between a drilled well and an artesian well?

1 Answer

A drilled well provides water from the bedrock that generally has a static level lower than ground level where the well is located. A true artesian well is constructed the same way, only the source of water comes from a level higher than the ground level where the well is constructed. The artesian well overflows the head of the well by itself, sometimes, causing a nuisance from the overflow. BUYERS BEWARE! Make sure you inquire about contract price jobs! Your well driller should be fully insured for well and pump installation and all employees should be covered by workers' compensation. Make sure the company you choose has a good reputation and plenty of experience. At Daniels, our reputation holds water!
