I live in Mountain View and when we had a well drilled we used Fosters in West Plains. The were really nice and had it done in one day. double cased and we were very pleased. I told them before they came I was going to be filming them and they showed up so clean with pressed clothes and shiny rubber boots LOL they had fun being filmed but by the end of the day they sure didn't look clean LOL. We had ours done about 4 years ago and it ran us about 100.oo a foot. I told them I wanted to be able to run 2 houses, barn and a garage on it, when they hit second water they said I could run a house on it, I told them to keep drilling!!! When they hit third water they said oh boy you can run everything now and the water ran clear in 10 min. They said that dosn't happen very offen and I was getting 30 gal a min. My girlfriends well gets the same pressure and it took hers 1 1/2 days before it was running clear. My well was 320 feet deep and the bill was for 3,200.oo no extra charges which I thought I would get since they broke there drill and had to fix it and that took half a day. I can't say enough about them.

do you happen to have a phone number for them? We live in Springfield so don't have a phone book for that area :)

also did that price include the casing and pump? Just curious as I've never had a well done before..

Did anyone ever locate the # for them?

also I was told that well drillers have a chart of each S/T/R that they refer to to give a general idea 1) where water has been found. 2) at what depth. does anyone know what this book is called or if there is a place online I can search for this type of thing.


Thanks,

Don
