Keen Well & Pump drills water and geothermal wells for both residential and commercial use. Primarily, we utilize the latest air & mud rotary drilling techniques and equipment. Occasionally, we still drill steel-cased wells with a cable-tool rig (spudder), mainly in situations where the larger rotary rigs can’t fit or due to customer preference.
The efficiency of the rotary rigs allow us to drill most wells in less than a day. Plus, they allow the use of PVC (PolyVinylChloride) casing, which has chemical, bacterial and corrosion-resistant qualities that make it the preferred casing material over steel.
Keen can drill your:
Residential Water Well
Commercial Water Well
Geothermal Heating Well
PVC or traditional steel cased wells
Depths up to 600 feet
PVC cased up to 8″ diameter
Volume up to 1000gpm
Depths up to 600 feet
Fast, rotary drilling gets job done quickly

Keen Well and Pump utilizes only top-quality components in your water well system. We are a conservative company that is more concerned about the long-term performance of a particular well system component rather than if it’s the “latest and greatest” new techno-gadget.
Most name brand pumps manufacture different “series” or “lines” of pumps (for example, not all pumps are of the same quality, and each have different specifications). We use only “top of the line” stainless steel pumps. Most generally we offer the Grundfos, SP4 series. In some instances, the best fit may be a Schaefer’s or Myer’s. Be assured we will only use the very best pump available for your application.
For more information about Grundfos Pumps visit our products page.
Our drop pipe (the pipe that your pump hangs on in the well) is heavy duty Schedule 80 PVC pipe. We will not use the continuous length black coiled pipe for your drop pipe, because it stretches and weakens over time. We also use stabilizers on each section of pipe to eliminate pump wire damage due to rubbing on the side of the casing and bore hole. Additionally, we install backup check valves in the well and at the pressure tank to keep your drop pipe and pressure tank full of water.
Industry leader Flex-con provides the best pressure tank in the industry today. Their plastic lined, steel tank with a butyl rubber diaphragm has unmatched performance and reliability. Fiberglass tanks with plastic bag diaphragms are far too problematic for us to consider using in your well.
As with pumps, tank manufactures also offer different “series” or “lines” of tanks. Most generally we offer the Flex-con, “top-of-the-line” Well-Rite Series. This tank is ANSI/NSF Standard 61 approved, and offers a welded, stainless steel water connection. This tank also offers a stainless steel elbow, a stainless steel port diffuser, a controlled action diaphragm, along with a five year limited warranty.

When we install your pressure tank, we will not use galvanized fittings. They rust and corrode in just a few years. Keen utilizes only brass fittings to give you a lifetime of corrosion resistance and reliability.
At Keen, we service what we sell … now, and in the future. But, we do not wish to build our business upon repeated service calls to your home. Frankly, the next time we want to hear from you is when you need a new well drilled. Until then, we want you to remain a satisfied customer with a rock-solid reliable water well system.
Most water wells in Ohio will need treatment of some type. Unlike some drillers, Keen Well and Pump will not try to sell you a piece of equipment before your well has been drilled, and we have performed a complete analysis of your water. After all, every water well is unique. Your water may not need equipment to make it more desirable, or you may have other contaminants in your water that can not be treated with a water softener.
After we drill your well, we will perform a comprehensive analysis of your water, which will enable us to give you a recommendation for the equipment needed to treat your water quality issues (if any exist). You can expect reasonable prices, top of the line conditioning equipment, and a commitment from us to do what is right for you.
Are you frustrated with the quality of your water? Would you like to know what is in your water that causes the soap scum in your shower, the staining in your sinks or that awful rotten egg smell? We will comprehensively test your water for FREE! Simply, call us or click contact us above to arrange for your FREE water test and equipment recommendation.
SOFT WATER MAKES A DIFFERENCE!
Almost all of the water found in Ohio is hard water. Hard water is water that contains minerals like calcium and magnesium. Hard water can have a negative impact on you and your household if left untreated.
If you have crusty stains or buildup at your water fixtures or are having to use large amounts of soap to clean, you probably have hard water. Hard water can eventually clog your plumbing and shorten the life of your appliances.
Soft water will improve your life throughout the house. In the bathroom your soaps and shampoos will lather better, your skin and hair will be softer and not as dry, and there will be no soap scum or mineral deposits to clean off of your sink, shower, tub and toilets.
In your laundry room, clothes will be noticeably cleaner, whiter and brighter.
In the kitchen, cleaning will be easier as you will not have the spotting and etching on your glass-ware that is caused by mineral-laden water. It will also take less effort, and less soap to clean dishes.
