As a reader, you know the name of this publication is National Driller, and that it contains information about all sorts and kinds of drilling. It contains information about water well drilling, oil and gas drilling, geotechnical drilling and geothermal drilling. Not every issue has something about each of these types of drilling, but in a year’s time, the 12 issues published would cover all of them. Most of you readers do at least one of these types of drilling; many of you perhaps do several types, or even all of them. Other readers do water well drilling, for instance, and also install pumps. Some readers will do pump work only. Some of you readers will do water well drilling, water pump installation and service, and water conditioning.
Over the last several years, I have written about water well drilling — including methods and types of rigs. I’ve written about various types of pumps, their good and bad points, and about pump accessories like tanks, pitless adapters and pipe. But, I have never written about water conditioning, a field where I have had experience. So, my next columns will be about that subject.
