There are two main purposes for water when it comes to your home or business: working water and drinking water. Carroll Water has trained professionals who service both. “Working water” is water used to help your home or business function (laundry, dishwasher, toilets, etc.). Drinking water is more than just the water you drink. Drinking water is any water that you drink or eat, including water used to clean fruits and vegetables, as well as any water used in general food preparations.
No matter what the purpose of your water is, we’re here to make sure you have the best water possible for you, your family and your business.
Simply put, our job is Purifying the Essential.

How do I get better water?
There are a variety of solutions for removing many of the contaminants in water, as well as delivery systems used to get the water to the point of use more efficiently.
Some decontamination equipment can include:
What can I do if my water pressure is less than desirable?
Some of the water delivery equipment we use includes:
Why is it important for me to have a professional check my water if I’m on city or some other municipality’s water?
While city or municipal water is regulated, it does not always ensure that it is the highest quality drinking water or working water (laundry, etc.).
Often, public water isn’t better or worse than well water. Both well water and public water can contain contaminants. Many residents are turning to professionals to install filters and systems to increase the life of laundry equipment, pipes, as well as to ensure their drinking water is of the highest quality.
What are geothermal heat pumps?
A geothermal heat pump is a system that uses the ground’s constant temperature to act as a balance for the air temperature inside of a house. Despite the fact that surface temperatures can be affected by the air temperature, ground temperatures can be relatively stable several feet below the surface throughout the year. This means that cold or hot air temperatures can be exchanged with the steady ground temperature by water flowing through a geothermal heat pump system. Geothermal heat pumps can also be used to supply hot water to a home as well due to the process used.
How often might I need to replace my well pump?
Well pump replacement can result from a number of causes, making it difficult to say how often they need to be replaced. The general rule is that most well pumps should last around 25 years, but well pumps can fail prematurely for a variety of reasons, such as a loss of well tank pressure, a failure to keep up regular maintenance or even the wear of high levels of contaminants on a well water pump can result in failure. Our technicians are trained to spot the signs of well pump problems and the loss of pressure in water tanks, before they fail.
How do I know if I need to drill a new well? or How do I know if my well is dry?
