“If you want a drink of water, you’ve got to get it from a well.”

This lyric from a popular musical group is the tagline motto of the Schroeder Rotary Drilling and Pump Company. Never has more truth been told than in the simple statement above.

Townships, farms, villages, municipalities and private land owners all depend upon the local ground water tables as a source of drinking water. If you've never been a water well user you may unaware of this. Fact is, many municipalities pump lake or river water combined with well water to central treatment facilities for treatment before being sold for consumption. In rural areas, the most economical source of water for farm and home is still the water well.

If your plans include moving to the country, chances are your source of water will be a water well. The well will likely be the only source of water available. With this in mind you'll be wise to know a full line water well expert. Tom is not only a licensed well driller, he also owns and operates his own drilling rig. Because of this Tom and his crew are not only pump repair experts, they also have hands on experience drilling wells. Actual well drilling experience in the pump repair business is rare. A lot of pump companies advertise well drilling, then hire the cheapest driller they can find.  A recognizable lack of pride usually shows up in the finished product of these contractors. In pump repair situations, the lack of drilling knowledge usually means they may not recognize your problem. In many cases a simple well problem can be falsely diagnosed as a pump problem, which leads to unnecessary repairs. Different problems occur on a daily basis and Tom's crews possess the knowledge and the right equipment to recognize your problem and repair it correctly. Don't play the lottery with the Yellow Pages. Give us a call first. Tom has over 35 years drilling and pump experience supported by hours of formal education. These qualities make him your best option listed for all of your water well needs.
