I am a Water Well Driller and Water Pump technician. I own a business in Riverview, Fl. We repair motors and pumps in shop and in the field. We repair and replace submersible and jet pumps, galvanized and bladder tanks, and their controls. Water filtration is another one of our specialties.

Experience in the area

I started drilling and repairing wells and pumps with my dad in 1958 at the age of 13 years. I worked with him on weekends and in the summer when not in school. After graduating high school, I worked for my Dad until going into the Army in 1968. I spent three years in the Army then went back into the Well Drilling/Repair field.


Many Forums including my own.


High school and a few courses after getting out of the Army. They were offered on the GI Bill.

Richard,    In my opinion undersink filters are useless.  The only usable cartridge in the entire unit would be a carbon filter which will remove chlorine.  The rest of the filters remove nothing that
