Well Tile Uses
Well Tile Sizes
Well tiles are available in 3-ft or 4-ft diameters. 3-ft tiles are tongue and grooved, while 4-ft tiles are not. The tongue and groove style is recommended, as it helps hold the well tiles together better.
Protection and Placement
Since dug wells take water from the highest water table, they are extremely sensitive to those activities that place in the immediate vicinity of the well.
Examples of chemical hazards to a well include the application or inadvertent spillage of fertilizer, pesticides, and inappropriate disposal of old crankcase oil, antifreeze or solvents, or waste salt brine from water softeners. Thus, the use of chemicals in your backyard, or that of your uphill neighbors, may negatively affect the quality of the water table from which your well draws.
Laboratory tests for these chemicals can be costly. The best and least costly approach to protect water quality is prevention of pollution rather than treatment after the fact. Be careful with respect to the use and disposal of chemicals near and upstream of your well.
The following protective distances are required or recommended when locating a well for a private single family home:
Choosing a Well Type
Based on the considerations above, such as soil depth, water needs, and existing pollution, a well type can now be chosen. In many cases there is relatively little choice since the choice of well types is largely influenced by the type of soil and the water availability on the property.
Contracting With a Dug Well Contractor
Prior to actual excavation, you will need to provide the contractor with guidance as to what concept will govern the amount of work to be done. Normally, dug wells are installed on a lump sum contract basis. However, this method does not ensure the deepest well unless that issue is specified as part of the agreement. The requirements of the contract are strictly between the homeowner and the well contractor.
