We do well drilling in Manawa, WI. The average amount of water each person uses is about 80 to 100 gallons, per day, for home use. Flushing the toilet accounts for most of that, then there’s taking showers and baths. Does your home need a new well?
Do you also need a septic system? Ask us about a well and septic package deal to help you save money on your project.
We do well drilling in Manawa with 6 inch steel casing which is capable of producing over 500 gallons per minute. However, the pump needed for that kind of flow rate does not physically fit into a 6 inch casing. Taking submersible pump size into consideration, the maximum amount of water a 6 inch well can produce would be about 180 gallons per minute. Your home only needs a fraction of that flow rate. A well and pump providing flow rates between 5 and 20 gallons per minute can adequately serve a typical household. If your project needs well drilling in Manawa, please give us a call!
You Should Know

Along with well drilling in Manawa we can also run your exterior water lines and install yard hydrants. Yard hydrants are typically used to irrigate lawns and gardens, provide water to wash cars or on farms to provide water for livestock. When a yard hydrant is located between the well and the main water supply shutoff valve or pressure tank (upstream of the pressure tank), it is regulated by DNR and a licensed pump installer is needed to install, repair, or evaluate it for compliance with Ch. NR 812, Wis. Adm. Code.
You Should Know
If a hydrant is leaking at the spout it is likely to be leaking below ground at the drain valve as well. Underground valve leaks may cause contaminated water to be drawn into the plumbing system by the hydrant when it is turned on. The DNR recommends repair or replacement of leaking yard hydrants to eliminate this potential source of contamination of the water supply system.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why Does My Water Have Black Particles In It?
This could be an indication of Manganese or Manganese and Iron in your water. Manganese is a necessary mineral for good health and there is not a primary drinking water standard for manganese. There is however, a nuisance standard for manganese.
Why Does My Water Appear To Have White Flakes In It?
This can be a sign of water hardness (excess calcium and magnesium carbonate in groundwater). Hardness of water is not a health concern but it can be a nuisance. Hard water causes decreased efficiency of water heaters and can shorten the life of water using appliances.
Why Does My Water Seem Foamy?
This could be caused by biofilm from Iron or Sulfur bacteria. Iron bacteria live off iron in the water. Both iron and sulfur bacteria are a nuisance, but not a threat to your health, so there is no drinking water standard. Foaminess could also be a sign that detergent is entering the groundwater. Have your well water tested to be safe.
Why Does My Water Smell Like Swamp Or Bog Water?
This is a possible sign of Sulfur bacteria. Sulfur bacteria are not a threat to human health and there is no drinking water standard. Hydrogen Sulfide Gas can be harmful to humans, but not at the levels produced by bacteria in wells.
