Save Your Well Pump. Save Your Money!


It is officially spring and our weather here in Michigan already seems summer like.  It won’t be long before we will all have the garden hoses out watering grass, gardens, plants, washing cars, or even filling up that swimming pool.  Here at Cribley Drilling we are not just concerned about your water, but also your wallet.

Here’s a little tip on how to reduce wear and tear on your well pump and keep your cash in your pocket.  When you are watering or filling anything outside, it is best to run 2 hoses (turned on full) at the same time.  This keeps your pump running and prevents it from turning on and off repeatedly.  You see, it’s not how much a pump runs that can wear it out faster.  It’s how often it turns on and off that will reduce the life of a well pump.

So take good care of your well pump and save your money.

But when that pump finally stops working, that’s where Cribley Drilling can help.

Irrigation Wells Can Save You Money


Summer is coming and with it, hot weather and possibly a growing season without a great deal of rain. Whether you are a farmer, irrigation consultant or just a savvy homeowner that wants to save money on the high cost of city water, get a jump on summer and call us about irrigation wells today.

Successful farming starts with a dependable source of water. And groundwater is the only truly dependable means to get it. Irrigation can increase crop yield by 20-65% in a typical year depending on crop variety, not to mention how beneficial it would be in a drought. Is it time to make a sound investment which will pay big dividends for many years to come? Your children and quite possibly your grandchildren will thank you.

We can help you develop a strategy to get the water you require at a price that’s affordable. Cribley Well Drilling Co is one of the most trusted names in Michigan for quality well construction, water pump system design and installation. We have the well drilling equipment to handle wells up to 20″ in diameter, as deep as necessary, and pumps up to 100 HP.

So give us a call whether your project is big or small and we’ll work up a price quote that meets your irrigation demands and your budget. In most areas you will recover your investment in 1 – 2 years. Call 800 697-6485 today and let’s get started!

Heat pumps? What a neat idea!



Since green seems to be the word of the century, few household technologies are greener than a geothermal heat pump.  How would you like to heat your home in the winter without burning any oil, natural gas, or propane?

Instead of burning fuel, geothermal heat pumps collect the Earth’s natural heat through a series of pipes, called a loop, installed below the surface of the ground.  A heat compressor is used to concentrate the heat or energy pulled from beneath the Earth.  That heat is then released inside your home at a higher temperature and distributed through your ductwork.

During the summer the process is reversed and excess heat is pulled from your home out through your underground loop which allows it to be absorbed by the Earth.  This process cools your home much like a refrigerator is cooled, by pulling heat out not blowing cold air in.

Additional equipment is available to help reduce the cost of heating water in the home.

While the initial cost of a geothermal heating and cooling system is more than a conventional system, they are easy to maintain and typically last 15 – 20 years.

Geothermal drilling is a separate part of the project.  The final cost will depend on if your system will utilize a deep vertical approach or if the loops are installed in a horizontal fashion.

That’s where Cribley Drilling Company can help.  Call 800 697-6485 for more information.

Winterize your water well or your wallet?

Unless you are a “snowbird” locking up your cottage or home, winterizing your water system, and heading south for the winter, your day to day needs for clean water on demand won’t change much in the cold weather.

So why is it we wait until warm weather to think about a 10 Point Well Check-up, Water Softener or Reverse Osmosis Check-up, or a new well and pump installation?  Perhaps it’s the same reason we wait until May to have our lawn equipment serviced.

While if we are living in and using our homes and cottages over the winter we don’t need to winterize our water system, we may want to consider winterizing our wallets.  Because new construction well drilling and irrigation well drilling are typically slow during the winter, Cribley Well Drilling and Champion Water Treatment offer specials this time of the year.

Winter is also a great time to consider Geothermal heating and cooling systems.
