Commercial

Very similar to residential, just on a grander scale. We can also install hydropneumatic tanks which hold up to 25,000 gallons of water, such as we have done recently for several local mobile home parks. We can also offer a variety of well covers, depending on what the customer needs. Specifically, here are some details about our commercial services:

Water Well Drilling

For commercial and municipal customers, we can drill high capacity wells, community wells, etc. Commercial customers often hire us to drill irrigation wells because they spend so much time and money to beautify their properties with sod or grass or greenery. There is really no need to invest in fine plants, bushes and sod if you cannot properly water it. And if you are in the city limits, you are sometimes limited as to how often you can irrigate your expensive investment. With your own well, you have the freedom to irrigate on your own schedule. We have also drilled wells for numerous golf courses, baseball fields, soccer fields, etc. where the quality of their grass is essential to their success. If your company has a need for water of a certain quantity, we can help achieve that goal and meet your requirements.

Choosing Your Well Driller

Adapted from www.welldrilling.com, there are several things to consider when looking for a well driller. Normally, an individual—a typical homeowner– might only be responsible for drilling one well in his or her lifetime, but the decision you make about choosing your driller is one that is long lasting. All counties in North Carolina require that you have a permit to drill a well, whether for residential or irrigation purposes. This makes your county health department a good place to start, since they will issue the permit and limit where you can drill, based on predetermined guidelines. Here are some other points to consider when hiring your well driller:

LICENSE AND INSURANCE

Be sure that the well driller you have drilling your well is properly licensed and properly insured. If a drilling contractor does not have a proper license or proper insurance, then they probably aren’t going to drill you a proper well.

REPUTATION

What kind of reputation has the company built? Ask questions of your friends, neighbors, other people who have had wells drilled. Most people don’t mind telling you their experience—good or bad. And the more people you ask, the more informed you will be and the better you will feel about your decision.

ESTIMATES

It is always just common sense to get various estimates on work you need done and this is very important when drilling a well. But one big mistake is hiring a driller based solely on the fact that they gave you the cheapest estimate. Drillers who don’t value their work are less likely to value the quality of their work. There is a big difference between being ‘competitive’ and being ‘cheap’. And in well drilling as in everything else, you get what you pay for!

OPTIONS

Talk to the well drilling contractor that you are considering hiring. They should be willing to discuss options with you, including the type of well you are going to get, type of casing used, etc. You will want to ask if there are any alternatives that may be a bit more expensive now that will save you money in the future. If your well drilling contractor does not have time to discuss options or your situation specifically, then you may want to continue your search.

EXPECTATIONS

Make sure you ask your driller what is expected from you. Will you need to clear trees, level a drilling site, pay when the job is completed and what forms of payment are acceptable?
Can the driller meet your expectations? While the county environmental health department dictates what area your well needs to be located in, when you meet with the driller prior to drilling will you be able to drill where you want and when you want? Asking questions now prevents problems later. A good well driller doesn’t want surprises and will not want to surprise you with regards to location or costs.

LONG-TERM

When making your final decision, think long-term. Ideally, your well will last longer than your cabinets, carpeting and windows. You’ll never regret putting more money towards upgrading your source of water instead of putting it towards superficial items in your house.
Thinking long-term means looking into the future—would you one day want to irrigate your lawn or plant a garden? Are you planning to build on to your home or expand your family? These things will require more water in the future than they will today. Think of your well as an investment into the value of your home—for now and for the future.

GEOTHERMAL DRILLING/INSTALLATION

N.W. Poole Well & Pump Co. was one of the first well drilling companies to bring geothermal drilling to this area. The initial cost for a geothermal heating and cooling system is higher than the standard heating and cooling system, but most homeowners recoup their cost in less than three years. It is also a great investment for your home and becoming more popular because it is so much better for the environment that a standard HVAC system. We have three employees at our company that are IGSHPA certified, which is really unusual in one company. Our employees received this certification thru extensive training and experience in the industry. With geothermal drilling being such a new option, you probably have many questions about it. The following can provide a wealth of information: www.igshpa.okstate.edu/geothermal/faq.htm and we encourage you to do your own research, don’t just take our word for it.

Pump installation/Services

As with residential services, there is no limit to the sophistication and quantity of water with which we can supply your facility. Simply tell us what your requirements are and we can get the job done for you.

Water testing/treatment

We have nearly twenty years of experience doing extensive water testing for commercial customers. We can do before and after construction testing to determine if the construction (i.e. roadways, blasting, etc.) affects the quality or quantity of wells in the surrounding area. We can test and treat for virtually any naturally occurring mineral and most man-made pollutants.

Well Abandonment

We can abandon wells at any depth or diameter. The only difference between residential and commercial is usually the number of wells to be abandoned. A residential customer may have one well to abandon, but a commercial customer can come across numerous wells at various job locations (i.e. putting in new roadways, clearing lots for a large construction project, etc.) We abandon according to the County and State 2C regulations and submit all necessary paperwork for our customers.

Fountain pump design/installation

We have designed and installed fountain pumps for Angus Barn in Raleigh, WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, North Hills/Raleigh’s Midtown Shopping Area in Raleigh, and many other homes and businesses in our area. See photos on our website for different fountain designs we have done.

We can also repair fountain pumps that have been designed by others. An example of this is a recent repair at the Wolfpack Club in Raleigh.

 

Well inspection/diagnosis/videotaping

Sometimes it is necessary to run a camera down in the well to observe the construction, casing, etc. This is an efficient way to inspect a well and determine how to proceed with repair. We also do well inspections for new home purchases for real estate companies, which include a water sample for bacteria, a professional analysis by a laboratory and our expert documentation about the working status of the well and if there is any repair needed.
