How much water do I need?
The amount of water a well needs to produce to provide an adequate supply of water for a single family residential home depends upon how deep the well is and how much water is going to be used by the home in a 24-hour period. The depth of the well is important because the deeper a well is, the more water it has in storage, available for immediate use.
The Maine Ground Water Association has recommended minimum flow rates for single family homes. Recommended minimum flow rates:
75’ well depth – 5 gallons per minute
110’ well depth – 4 gallons per minute
160’ well depth – 3 gallons per minute
250’ well depth – 2 gallons per minute
320’ well depth – 1 gallon per minute
420’ well depth – .5 gallon per minute
I have orange or pink staining on my toilet. What does that mean?
If you have staining on your toilet or washing machine, you may have a water quality issue. Most drilled water wells in Maine provide safe and delicious drinking water, but a few contain bacteria, arsenic, nitrate, nitrite, radon, lead, or uranium. If your well water has never been tested, consider having it done.
If your water has been tested in the past, but you notice a change in its appearance or taste, a retest is advisable. Learn more about water quality and treatment.
How long does it take to drill a well?
Under normal conditions, a residential well takes no longer than two days to drill. At Goodwin Well & Water, we can typically drill a 300′ well in one day and 500′ well in a day and a half.
