Well-drilling is a process that involves digging into the ground, but it’s much more than simply making a hole. In Gainesville, Ocala, and the rest of North Central Florida, our groundwater and ground composition are very different from the rest of the state. There is no “one size fits all” well drilling for residents that live here, and it’s important to know what to look out for in a well-drilling contractor here in Florida.
At Perry’s Pump Repair, we have over 30 years of experience working with the water and ground here in North Central Florida. From our well pump services, to water softening and treatment services, to our water storage and tank services, we know exactly how to drill, pump, store, and filter the water here in this unique area.
Here in North Central Florida, we are lucky to live above the Floridan Aquifer. An aquifer is a large, porous rock that holds water inside and allows water to move inside and throughout the rock. According to the Suwannee River Management Department, more than 90% in the northeast and east-central areas of Florida use groundwater from the Floridian aquifers as their water supply.
