When It Comes To Water Well Service & Installations Peter Snelten & Sons Takes Every Job Seriously, We Provide The Most Economical & Practical Solutions In The Water Well Industry Available Today.


When sizing a pressure tank for your system, you first have to look at what the pumping capacity is. Pressure tanks are designed to hold 1/3 water and 2/3 air. The pressure tank should be large enough to allow the submersible pump to run for, at least one minute. This allows the cold water passing by the electrical motor to actually cool it down. When submersible pumps and pressure tanks are properly sized for your water well system based on how many faucets you have in your home, they will provide years of reliable service. Remember, a submersible pump a little too large will always do the job properly, and a submersible pump that is sized a little too small will have to be replaced or will prove unsatisfactory for your needs.

WellXtrol Water Well Pumps

They were absolutely excellent. We called them, and they showed up as soon as they heard from us. They fixed our problem in half a day. Our well was completely shot and we had no water in our house. After their repair, our water works even better than before. We’re so thankful for them. WE LOVE THEM!!
~ Steven Singh

I called and they came out within 30 minutes! Very nice and informative. Overall great experience! Will definitely recommend them.

~ Christopher Kersten

We lost power and my water did not come back on. I thought for sure it was the well pump. Kyle came and tracked the problem down. I put the wrong kind of switch on the pressure tank. Save me a bundle, very pleasant. Highly recommend.

~ Ron Bachman

Family oriented. That’s important to us. Thank you for helping out immediately when we had a big problem. We highly recommend this company.

~ Dorothy Euchler 

Our water was not working this morning and I called our local guy and he no longer is in service. So I found these guys on the Internet wanted to pass along the information. I called them at 7:30 this morning and they were here by nine. They moved their schedule around so they could get here sooner because I did not have water. If you need well service give these guys a call they were great!

~ Kimberly Kearney

Yesterday, at 1:00 we called Snelten and Sons about getting a switch repaired and they were at our house at 2:30. Ben and Adam were very courteous, professional, and informative. They did not take any shortcuts, they did the job efficiently and the price was fair. Highly recommend this company to anyone who has well water.

~ Daniel Pfligler 

Todd Snelten did a wonderful job working on my well and water pressure tank. I highly recommend them for your well and water needs. They were here in 90 minutes after my phone call and replaced everything but a new well and was completed the same day they started the work.

~ Joseph Doyle 

Every time I have service done from this company it is 100% top notch! Thank you for all the GREAT service you have provided to us for the last 32 yrs!!

~ Michael Glefke

I want to give a shout out to this great company!! I have a very old system here at my house. Pete was very knowledgeable about my system and what he wanted to do to get the job done. Other companies I had out here wanted nothing to do with it and told me I needed to drill a new well. This company persevered and got the job done. Rusty and Ben, you were awesome today!! Rusty is a master at fixing problems and coming up with solutions!! I haven’t had pressure this good in years!! I highly recommend them for any water problems you have!!

~ Kristi Weseman 

My husband woke up to find no water pressure. Major lightning storm last night. He called and left a message, within 15 minutes Ryan called back and walked my husband through to problem solve it. What is really impressive is that Ryan had a flooded basement due to this storm but still took the time to call us. Now that is dedication!

~ Terrie Warzecha

Peter Snelten & Sons has serviced our home water well (and related components) for over ten years. They are reliable, honest, fair, and very responsive. Their work is of the highest quality. We heartily recommend this thoughtful family for water well-related work.

~ Robert Ross

We were very happy with the recent service we received. Our water stopped working unexpectedly on a Friday evening around 8:00. After leaving an after-hours voicemail, I promptly got a return call, and arrangements were made for them to come out first thing the next morning. They called the next morning to let me know they were on their way and showed up on time. Luke talked to my husband through everything he was doing and why he was doing it and gave my husband options to fix the problem.  We felt very comfortable that we were working with someone knowledgeable and that the job was done correctly, and we had our water working again in just a couple hours after they arrived. Based on the service we received, we will gladly call them again with any future issues that may arise..

~ Melissa J.

Our 53-year-old well pump in Prospect Heights IL went out finally.  Called Snelton and Sons. After a few questions, they scheduled it and sent their knowledgeable crew out in a couple of days. They replaced the pump along with upgrading our non-code well access. Very happy with their professional service and will recommend again and again. Thanks, S&S
