  • New Home Construction – New Water Well
  • Existing Home – New Water Well
  • Cleaning Out and Rehabbing Existing Water Well

Our drilling crews have over 20 years of combined experience. We drill residential water wells in a time efficient manner (1-2 days), with minimal disturbance to your yard or existing water source.

To learn more about drilling a water well for a new or existing home, please contact Steve Frontz or submit a request for quote here.

Water Well Drilling
After the water well is drilled, we install a pump and pressure tank, which extract and regulate the flow of water from the water well. Our installation technicians have over 20 years of experience in designing and implementing water systems. We engineer each water system depending on the needs of your household.

We generally install and service submersible water well pumps, but we can service and source jet pumps and booster turbine pumps if needed to continue your existing setup. We offer a full line of pressure tanks depending on the volume of water your household uses, and we offer all of the critical accessories and plumbing parts that complete the remainder of the water system.

Water Well and Water System Repair and Maintenance
We have the largest water well and water system service team in the region. If you are out of water, have low water pressure, dirty water, or you experience spits of air coming from your faucet, please submit a service request, and our technicians will come to your house and resolve the problem. Any of these symptoms are an indication that you have trouble with the water well, pump or the pressure tank. We generally stock pumps, pressure tanks, and other critical accessories, and will restore your quality of water the same day.

If you are out of water or have an urgent service request, please call our office at (330) 262-5301 to speak with an operator. Our office is open Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET. Technicians are available after-hours and on the weekend.

Hand Water Pump
If you have ever experienced the inconvenience of a power outage or desired a quick water source for a garden without having to run extensive garden hoses, a hand water pump is the perfect solution. Hand water pumps are manually-operated and require no electricity. Furthermore, if you have an existing water well on your property, no further drilling is required. The installation of hand water pumps is quick and affordable.

Water Treatment

We offer a full line of water treatment equipment and services to maximize the quality of your water, including water softeners, whole house treatment, and drinking water filtration. We offer free water tests and quotes to fix your water. To learn more about our water treatment solutions, please contact Matthew Kinney or submit a request for quote here.

Water SofteningWhole House SystemsDrinking Water SystemsRepair & MaintenanceTesting
Water Softening
You may have what is known as “hard” water. Hard water causes several problems:

  • Dissolved minerals precipitate out of hard water as scale, which builds up on the insides of pipes, water heaters, tea kettles, and coffee makers. Eventually, pipes and equipment can become completely clogged.
  • Hard water reduces soap’s ability to lather, whether in the shower, sink, dishwasher or washing machine, and reacts with soap to form a sticky scum.

The primary way to combat hard water is to run the water through a water softener. We offer a full line of high quality water softeners that will improve the quality of your water and preserve your plumbing infrastructure.

Whole House Water Filtration

Iron-Sulfur Eliminator Filters
Iron and sulfur eliminator filters are the most simple low-level iron and sulfur treatment devices available. Eliminator filters do not use chemical injection pumps or retention tanks and are easy for homeowners to maintain.

Chlorine Water Treatment System
Chlorine Water Treatment Systems remove sulfur smells, bacteria (such as coli form and E. coli), iron and other undesirable contaminants. Chlorine can be easily and inexpensively injected into water to remove these contaminants.

Chlorine water treatment systems work by introducing a small amount of chlorine into the water. Sufficient contact time must be allowed for the chlorine to be effective. A carbon backwash filter can be used to remove the chlorine before it enters the home if desired.

Peroxide Water Treatment System
A Peroxide Water Treatment System is a powerful water treatment system used to treat problem water containing iron, iron bacteria, manganese, and sulfur. Peroxide systems handles the worst type of water reliably and effectively.

When peroxide is added to water a large amount of dissolved oxygen is released and a powerful oxidizing effect occurs. Coliform and iron bacteria are killed, and other contaminants are oxidized. Peroxide holds an advantage over chlorine treatment. Peroxide disinfects through oxidation, splitting into oxygen and water and eliminates contaminants that cannot be eliminated by chlorine.

Ultraviolet Water Purification
Ultraviolet (UV) water purification equipment disinfects water using ultraviolet light, without adding chemicals. A UV purifier does not change the taste or odor of the water and does not remove any beneficial minerals in the water. UV purifiers are most effective when the water has already been partially treated. Therefore, we often combine UV purifiers with other technologies such as carbon filters, water softeners, and reverse osmosis systems to provide complete water treatment solutions.

Drinking Water Filtration
Would you like your tap water to be better than bottled water quality? Drinking filtered water reduces unpleasant tastes and odors caused by chlorine, minerals, and chemicals. Frontz Drilling offers reverse osmosis drinking water filtration systems.

Reverse osmosis (RO) reduces many pollutants and contaminants, separating them from the water through carbon filters, plus a membrane that works like an extremely fine filter. The filtration process filters particles 100,000 times smaller than a human hair, reducing up to 99% of common contaminants.

Furthermore, installing an RO system saves significant money on bottled water. Drinking bottled water can be expensive, with premium water costing over $5 per gallon. Filtered water using an RO system costs less than 25 cents a gallon, a savings of over 95%.

Repair & Maintenance of Your Water Treatment Equipment

Periodic Maintenance
Water Treatment equipment, including water softeners, whole house filters, and reverse osmosis systems require periodic maintenance or inputs, such as new filters or salt. We offer annual maintenance plans to ensure that your water treatment equipment operates at full capacity. Furthermore, we stock media, filters, and accessories for all of our water treatment equipment including UV lights, carbon filters, and peroxide.

No Water/Equipment Repair
If you are out of water or having issues with your water treatment equipment, please submit a service request, and our technicians will come to your house and resolve the problem.

If you are out of water or have an issue with your water treatment equipment, please call our office at (330) 262-5301 to speak with an operator. Our office is open Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET. Technicians are available after-hours and on the weekend.

Water Testing and Analysis
Do you know what’s in your water? We offer complimentary water quality tests and treatment consultations. We test for the following water constituents:

  • Hardness of Water – Hard water causes mineral scaling and can clog pipes and fixtures, reduces soap’s ability to lather, and can cause unsightly spots on your kitchen appliances and bathroom fixtures.
  • Iron – High concentrations of iron can result in poor tasting water and rust-colored staining of kitchen appliances, bathroom fixtures, and clothing.
  • pH – Low pH water, or acidic water, can cause damage to kitchen appliances and bathroom fixtures.
  • Sulfur – Sulfur causes damage to plumbing and gives off an offensive, “rotten egg” odor.
  • Chlorine – Chlorine is objectionable to some people when drinking or bathing in water with high chlorine content.
  • We will provide you with the results of the complimentary water quality test and a recommendation and quote for water treatment equipment required to enhance the quality of your water.
