Main Components of Water Well & Water Purification Systems

At Updike Water Well Drillers, we offer superior drilling services to residential, commercial, agricultural, and industrial customers in Branchport, New York, and throughout the surrounding communities. Whether you just moved to an area that requires water wells and water purification systems or you are just interested in learning more about how these systems work, our certified and insured professionals are here to help educate you on our services. In order to understand how water wells work, it is important to understand what makes up a water well. Below we offer insight into the main components that make up water wells.

Well Casing - This is a part that is inserted into a drilled well to allow the hole to stay open. A well casing also protects the quality of water in the well. 

Wellhead - This is a capped part of the well casing that is above ground level to allow access to the well. 

Well Cap - A well cap goes on top of the well casing and fits tight to eliminate debris and small creatures from entering into the water purification systems.

Pump - We utilize jet pumps, which are located above ground and submersible pumps, which are located underwater, in our water well systems.

Pitless Adapter - This serves as a connector underground that connects the frost line and the well casing to provide a safe and sanitary seal.

Distribution Pipe - This pipe is responsible for transporting water from the well to the house or property. 

Pressure Tank - These tanks are typically located inside the house or property and allow water to be supplied without using the pump every transaction.
