Skillings & Sons, LLC was established in 1970 as a small family business that drilled wells for drinking water. Today we are in our third generation. We operate in New Hampshire and Massachusetts and have a team of more than 75 employees with more than 350 years of combined experience. Skillings & Sons works with a variety of clients, including homeowners, contractors, engineering firms, schools and government agencies, servicing their water needs. Our trucks are on call 365 days a year. They are fully equipped with the most common parts and equipment needed to solve your problem in a single trip.


Water well professionals like Skillings & Sons generally deal with equipment outside of the home, including:.

  • Well water testing and treatment
  • Water pump repair or replacement
  • Broken pressure tank repair
  • Sanitary well cap installation
  • Storage reservoir installation
  • Well rehabilitation
  • Well water softening
  • Well winterization


We're also the experts to call for routine maintenance and annual inspections – both of which can minimize the chances of future repair problems.

Do you need to call a plumber instead?

Depending on the water issue at hand, you may be considering calling a plumber. Plumbers specialize in repairing equipment inside the home, like fixtures, sinks, drains, toilets, and water heaters. Plumbers also handle sewer and water supply line issues, fixture installations and repairs for water-using appliances.

While some plumbers may be familiar with well components, if your issue involves your private well in any way, Skillings & Sons should be your first call.


And if you're not sure where the problem lies...

The water well professionals at Skillings & Sons will be able to offer general advice over the phone, and if your problem is better suited to a plumber, we'll let you know!
