Fact: Well Water - It’s Naturally Better​

Northeast Texas and East Texas are blessed with some of the best quality deep well water available in the world. Most deep wells in Northeast Texas and East Texas draw their water from the Carrizo or Wilcox aquifers, where the water has traveled through many miles of Mother Nature’s own sand filters and is the safest source of uncontaminated, unpolluted water available.

Fact: Deep wells are a safe and reliable, long term source of water.​

Deep well water is typically safer than most city water supplies. This water entered the ground literally hundreds of years ago...before any man-made chemicals were around to pollute aquifers. Most of these deep wells have no need of chlorination or filtration. On the other hand, most city water supplies come from rivers or lakes, where the water has been pumped through a small man made filter which filters out mud and debris but cannot remove chemicals, bacteria, viruses or decomposed waste. The water is then chlorinated to kill bacteria and viruses and is pumped out to your home. These water supplies are much more vulnerable to pollution and contamination than deep wells, and usually contain many trace amounts of different man-made chemicals and waste. A deep well drilled today will produce water for many decades in the future, just as many deep wells drilled 40 to 50 years ago are still in daily use today.

Fact: Deep wells are constructed to much higher standards today than 20 years ago.

Just as cars and electronics have evolved over the last 20 to 30 years, so has deep well technology, in the hands of a new generation of well drillers. 30 or 40 years ago a person in the country was thrilled just to have a well that wasn’t iron water. Many tolerated cloudy, sandy water, low pressure and high maintenance. Today, rural customers can expect a water supply that will produce clear, sand free water, with good pressure and with little upkeep.

Fact: C. Miller Drillings’ deep well warranty is the best in the industry.

Few well drilling companies offer guarantees at all, and none of them match the deep well warranty that C. Miller Drilling offers. Our four point guarantee sets us apart from the competition. This warranty is standard on most of the deep wells we drill. Please ask about the details and availability of our warranty at your location.

Fact: Having a deep well drilled by a contractor with a lesser warranty is a risky proposition.

There is much more to the construction of a quality deep well than most customers realize. An inexperienced, ill equipped, or uncaring contractor, can result in a well that is an ongoing source of misery. Ask yourself, do you really want to gamble with your water supply?

Fact: C. Miller Drilling is the East Texas expert for municipal and agricultural water wells.

Fact: Most counties do not require a permit to drill a water well.

In most counties, all you need to do to drill a well is to choose which licensed water well driller to use. However, a few counties in Northeast Texas and East Texas do require a permit for well drilling. C. Miller Drilling is experienced in making the permit process fast and painless, and will gladly help you acquire a permit if your county requires one. Just give us a call, and we will answer your questions, and start the process when you are ready.

Forrest Lovelady - Winnsboro, Texas

"I had C. Miller Drilling put in my well 14 years ago. The crew was professional and the well has performed exactly as we hoped. The service men have been professional, one time I let ants get into the electrical system, within 14 hours my well was working."

Dr. & Mrs R.L. Banowsky - Winnsboro, Texas

"Cory Miller has drilled two wells for us in the last 15 years. At that time he was a young man with a big responsibility. We never had had one problem with the well drilling or excellent service work. I have recommended C. Miller Drilling Co. to many friends and continue to do so."

Charles & Charlotte Johnson - Gilmer, Texas

"C. Miller Drilling drilled our first deep water well in 1984. We had no problems with the system, and it was still serving three families when we sold the property in 2000. Although we had access to community water at our new house, we engaged C. Miller to drill us a new well before we started building. He does wells right and reasonable."

Don & Beverly Day - Emory, Texas

"Thank you so very much for working us into your busy schedule. We appreciate your concern for us being out of water."

Jerry Beavers - Jefferson, Texas

"Thank you for your service crew for quick and professional service. I was in a depsperate situation and really needed the help. The people of East Texas are fortunate to have an honorable, trustworthy and honest person like yourself to render service when they are threatened with the prospect of doing without water."
