Shallow wells have a maximum depth of 25’. If you have a shallow well, your pump and pump system will be above ground. The pump system is normally located in a small pump house or a room inside your home. The water from a shallow well system is supplied by a large concrete basin located on your property.
Deep wells are normally anywhere from 40’ to 400’ deep. If you have a deep well, the pump itself will be located at the bottom of your well. The remaining system components are located in a pump house or a room inside your home. The water from a deep well system is suppled by a small metal pipe drilled into the ground on your property.
