Filling up a glass with drinking water from kitchen tap
  • Q: How do you find the best spot for a well?
    A: The team at Herb Lang Well Drilling Ltd. thoroughly analyzes geological data before we start drilling for a well. We drill in fractured rock zones, where we know that groundwater accumulates in large quantities adequate to your needs.
  • Q: What sort of things do you consider before drilling for a well?
    A: Before choosing the site for your well, you should know how much water you expect to be produced from the well. What's more, you should ensure that the well is located far from potential sources of contamination, such as sewers, septic tanks, pastures, silos, sewage system absorption systems, etc. It's also vital that the well is drilled where groundwater is located deeper than 10 feet below the soil surface.
  • Q: What is hard water?
    A: Hard water is water that contains dissolved minerals. It is to blame for spotty dishes, dull hair, and the soap scum in your bathtub.
  • Q: How can I make hard water soft?
    A: Water can be made soft by adding softener to it. The softener replaces the calcium and magnesium ions with sodium ones.
