Products And Services

  • Septic Systems

    Septic tanks are installed on generally all septic systems. A septic tank is a two chamber single tank made of either concrete or plastic. Septic tanks accept raw sewage from the source (house). Water enters the tank in what is called a baffle. The baffle guides the sewage coming into the tank deeper into the tank. This allows the separation of the solid material to begin. Heavier types of solids along with older solids that have been inside the tank a while sink to the bottom of the tank. This layer of solid material is called sludge. Lighter and newer solids float to the top of the tank. This layer of solids is called scum. Between the two layers is wastewater without any solids (clear layer). There is a wall inside the tank that separates the two chambers. This wall has about a 4” round hole half way down. This hole allows the water with no solids remaining in it to flow into the next chamber. This chamber is storage for water to be disposed into the drainfield. There is another baffle on the outlet side of the septic tank. This serves two purposes. First we attach a filter inside the baffle. This prevents any solids that have made it into the second chamber from going out into the drainfield. The baffle also serves as a way to draw water from the middle layer to exit into the drainfield. This side of the septic tank is supposed to be free of solids, but this baffle acts as insurance. Over time sludge layers and scum layers get thicker in depth. That is why it is a good idea to pump your septic tank at least once every 3 years. If these layers get too thick, they can make their way into the liquid chamber and eventually out into the drainfield or plug up the filter if one is installed. Solids will plug up the drainfield and prevent it from dispersing water into the ground. Septic tanks are designed to vent their odors back through the venting system installed in the house. Newer septic tanks are installed with risers which allow access for someone at the surface to know where the tank is located along with seeing inside of it easily. It is very important to make sure that the septic tank is water tight. If ground water is leaking into the septic tank in any way, it will have to be disposed of into the drainfield. This additional water was not allowed for when the septic system was designed, and the extra water will eventually cause premature failure of the drainfield. Dose tanks are installed on all pressurized drainfields and can serve some other purposes. Generally these tanks are also made of concrete or plastic. Wastewater flows from the outlet side of the septic tank into the dose tank. The tank serves as a sewage pump and control tank. The sewage pump and controls are placed inside of the tank. As wastewater flows into the tank the water level rises. Floats are installed to turn the pump on and off at certain water levels. When the water level reaches the designed level, the float turns the pump on. The pump will then pump the water out into the drainfield. As the pump runs, the water level lowers until it reaches the designed level in which the float turns the pump back off. There is also a high level alarm float. This float serves as a warning to the homeowner that the water level is getting high enough and that something has probably gone wrong. The high level alarm is attached to a box that sounds a siren and light either at the surface or in the house. The dose tank has a vent pipe at the surface that allows air to vent into and out of the system as the water level rises and falls. Dose tanks also have an electrical control box for wiring the floats and pump so they work together with a timer. All pressure systems work on timed doses to prevent overdosing and any one peak time. Newer dose tanks are installed with risers which allow access for someone at the surface to know where the tank is located along with seeing inside of it easily. It is very important to make sure the dose tank is water tight. Gravity septic systems are the oldest type of legal means for disposing of wastewater on site. They are also the lowest in cost. Gravity Septic systems use gravity to move wastewater throughout the system. Water flows out of the septic tank into a pipe that leads to a distribution box. The distribution or “D” box is made of either concrete or plastic. The pipe coming from the septic tank enters a hole in the “D” box. The “D” box has several holes. There is one hole that is higher than the other holes. This hole is used for the pipe coming from the septic tank. This allows the water level in the “D” box to stay below the bottom of the pipe coming from the septic tank. If the water level rises above the bottom of the pipe coming from the septic tank, it is a sign the drainfield is having problems accepting water. The other holes are for the pipes that go to the

  • Wells & Pumps

    Supplying water to meet people’s needs is the general purpose of a well. There are also other uses for a well such as returning water into the ground from geothermal heating, using the warmth of the ground water for geothermal heating. Wells are necessary where central water is not available. Wells cannot be used for domestic use where central water is available. Wells usually can be used for irrigation and other nondomestic uses where central water is available. The process starts with drilling a hole down into the ground. While drilling (mud rotary style) we look at the soil that is coming up out of the ground. The soil coming up out of the ground tells us where/how much water is located in that depth of the ground. The soil coming up can also tell us some about the quality of water located in that depth of the ground. Once we locate a depth that produces enough water without any signs of quality issues (if possible), we stop the drilling process. We sink a piece of pipe to the bottom of the hole. The piece of pipe, called a well screen, has very thin machined slices(slots) in the pipe that allow water inside the pipe. The slots are designed to allow a certain amount of water into the pipe while keeping sand and stones out. Then we extend solid pipe to the surface of the ground. We install small gravel all the way around and up the entire piece of well screen. The gravel serves as a filter to further keep dirt and sand out of the well screen. We install grout around the well to prevent any contamination from the surface. Grout seals off the entire hole around the pipe so that the surface does not have access down the hole around the outside of the well casing. We usually do not have a problem finding water on Delmarva, however the area is known for having several quality issues. Iron, nitrates, and sulfur issues are the most common. As well drillers, we use a database of all previous wells and well depths along with other resources to try and anticipate what type of water quality issues to expect. A well needs a pump to get the water out of the ground. We utilize many types of pumps, tanks, and fittings to get the water out of the ground. We have two basic styles of pumps for water wells. Suction pumps are trending to be pumps of the past due to their lack of reliability as compared to submersible pumps. Suction pumps sit above the water table and pull the water out of the well like a straw. Then the pump pushes the water to the house/source demanding the water. Submersible pumps sit inside the well. They push the water to the house/source. Once we have water flowing to the house/source, we usually install a water expansion tank. Water tanks have a lining inside of them. The tank has air pressure inside. When water enters the tank, the air pressure creates water storage under pressure. When the tank fills up to capacity the pressure builds up to the point where the pressure switch turns the pump off. When the house/source uses water, it comes from the water tank until the pressure drops low enough the pump comes on. We do not want the water pump coming on every time the kitchen sink is turned on. So if you turn the sink on for just a second, the water comes from the water already stored in the tank instead of the pump. This prevents the pump from turning on and off rapidly. The other purpose of a water tank is to ensure that when the pump does come on that it runs for a minimum amount of time. There are many ways to produce a system and its components to extract water from the well. We do everything we can to put pump hookup packages of all styles, efficiency, and demand within our clients budgets.

  • Irrigation Wells

    ALLOW ME TO SHOW YOU HOW MUCH $$$ YOU ARE WASTING BY WATERING YOUR LAWN WITHOUT AN IRRIGATION WELL! Did you know one of the cheaper water utility rates in the State of Delaware is western Sussex County communities Green Acres? They charge much less than most other communities as of the date of this publication. The community has always been on the lower side of rates. The charges in this community are as follows: $52.86 base rate per quarter regardless of rather any water was used or not (standard fee) $8.0493 per 1000 gallons of water (one of the lowest in the state) The average irrigation system consists of about four zones. The average zone consists of five heads. The average head sprays two gallons per minute (gpm). The average run time per zone, when looked at over the entire season in most areas, is about 30 minutes per day. There are yards that run zones longer because of sandy soils and yards that run shorter due to soils with loamier soils. There are also yards that run zones multiple times a day. On average, through the entire season, the numbers used are on the conservative side. I want to stay on the conservative side just to show everyone the minimum amount of time it will take to pay off an irrigation well and pump system. 4 zones X 5 heads = 20 total heads 20 total heads X 2 GPM = 40 GPM 40 GPM X 30 min run time = 1200 gallons per day The average irrigation season for lawns runs from May 1 until Oct 15 in Delaware. That’s 158 days. Most people of rain delays on their systems. Subtract 13 days for rain delays and you end up irrigating for 145 days. 1200 gallons per day X 145 days = 174000 gallons of water used for irrigation per season So how much does it cost to irrigate 174000 gallons of water a year? Every community will be different. Check your water bill to locate and compare with these numbers. First is the base rate; the base rate is per quarter, and there are two quarters in a irrigating season. 52.86 X 2 (for 2 quarters) = 105.72 I’m going to leave this number out, because you have to pay this anyway to supply water to your home. So now we will focus on the usage. 8.0493 per 1000 gallons of water is the charge In the example we used 174000 gallons of water BOTH ARE ABOUT 10-20% CONSERVATIVE TO MOST COMMUNITIES First we divided the total used gallons by 1000… 174000/1000=174 Now for the bad news… 174 X $8.0493= $1400.58 It cost $1400.58 using very conservative numbers to water your lawn if you don’t have a well. Let me be clear, if you want to save $1400 a year you need to drill a irrigation well NOW! It will take less than 2 years to pay for the well. Then that $1400 goes in your pocket EVERY YEAR! It cost very little to run a well pump per year! This is a no brainer, call us today for your irrigation well and pump system! We install all size irrigation wells, pump systems. We can get in and out of your yard with minimum impact to your yard. Call us today!

Willey & Co takes a lot of pride of being in the water business for many decades. Proper depth excavation. We make sure our lines our installed at the proper depth to prevent damage. Have you ever seen someone chisel plow irrigation lines in at 3″-5″? Even the cable company will break pipes at that depth. If you break a irrigation line it will fill with dirt and plug the nozzles, and it can become a nightmare. It’s not that hard to just excavate the proper depth at the beginning. That’s what we do. A design that incorporates proper irrigation practices. Head to Head coverage, even zone precipitation, and proper nozzle selections for proper coverage rates is important. Upgrades Our most common and demanded upgrades are listed below: 1. Solar Sync- Do you ever wish you didn’t have to adjust your control panel around different weather patterns? Purchase a solar sync. Solar Sync is a easy upgrade that has advanced weather sensors and local weather data. It calculates evapotranspiration and adjust the controller daily based on local weather conditions. Solar Sync also measures solar radiation and temperature. It works in combination to your wireless Rain-Clik sensor to make life completely simple. It does all the thinking and adjusting. 2. Soil Clik – Do you have that one place in your yard that is always getting too much water or not enough? Soil-Clik is a easy upgrade sensor that allows your controller to adjust settings based on the desired moisture level in the root zone of the turf in one or even multiple zones or areas. 3. The best selling upgrade is the Remote Module. Do you ever want to walk around your yard and be able to turn the irrigation zones on and off without going back and forth to the control box? We have a remote for our controller. We can easily install a sensor that allows the controller to be controlled by our Sync Module Remote. Then, you can walk around the yard and operate your entire system…..remotely.
