residential wells

  • As a homeowner, if you receive your potable water from a water well, it falls on you to protect the quality of your water source.This includes maintaining your water system, pump, plumbing, and any other related items within your system. Backflow is an issue that if not addressed, can result in unintentional contamination of your water source.


  • High-quality groundwater delivered to your home from a water well is a cool, refreshing gift that is often just taken for granted.

     

    However, there can be a variety of contaminants that make the water taste or smell bad and occasionally make you acutely sick. Some can even cause long-term health problems. With the right filtering system, contaminants in groundwater can be removed, and all you get is the great tasting sip and the assurance that your family is safe from harm.


  • One of Skillings and Sons own has been quoted in a regional newspaper talking about water restrictions.

    In a July 29th article of the Boston Globe, Roger Skillings spoke against putting water restrictions on homeowners who use wells. Mr. Skillings is the owner of Skillings and Sons as well as the former president of the Massachusetts Ground Water Association. 


  • Because they’re underground, geothermal heat pumps aren’t as noticeable as say, wind turbines and solar panels, and they just don’t get the attention other alternative energy processes get. Skillings & Sons, however, has been giving geothermal heat pump technology quite a bit of attention over the years and can show by their satisfied customers that the process is cost-effective, energy efficient and ecologically friendly.
