North Florida Water Systems, Inc. operates a modern rotary drilling rig utilizing mud and air. Owner, Robert L. McMillan, Sr., and his son, Robert Jr., are personally involved in the drilling of your well and are committed to providing you with a well that produces quality water.
All wells are drilled utilizing a method known as “mud rotary.” An 8 ½” hole is drilled down into the aquifer. A 4″ PVC casing is then set in the hole. At the end of the job Bentonite grout (dry clay added to water to make slurry) is pumped around the casing. The well is capped off with cement at the top of the well. All wells are drilled with the most efficient and modern technology utilizing PVC casing and drop pipe to provide a well that is superior in construction and reliability. Pump service is available for all makes and models of pumps by our trained professional staff. We are licensed and insured and all of our work is guaranteed for one year.
A quality constructed well is one of the most valuable assets on your property and will furnish clean, pure water for your family for years to come. That said, it makes sense to go with best materials available. In the early days of business we drilled a well by driving steel casing into the ground and many contractors still utilize this method. The main problem with steel is that it rusts. When water and soils mix they form a reaction that can actually cause holes to be cut in the casing. Needless to say, this can cause your well to become contaminated with sand. Over the years we have witnessed numerous occurrences of this and made the decision to no longer drill utilizing steel casing but to use PVC exclusively. This change ensures that we provide a well that is superior in construction to our competitors.
