If you need to drill a water well or need water pump service for your well in Buellton, it is nice to know a little bit about your city.

The city of Buellton is probably most famous for its nickname of the “Home of Split Pea Soup”, a reference to the Pea Soup Andersen’s restaurant. The city is located in the Santa Ynez Valley and has a population of about 5,000 in approximately 1.58 square miles. It lies at the junction of US Hwy 101 and State Route 246 and was incorporated in 1992.

The town is named for R.T. Buell who owned the Rancho San Carlos de Jonata, originally a Mexican land grant. First used just for raising cattle, Buell turned it into a prosperous horse and cattle ranch and dairy farm. After 1900, the area grew rapidly and the town itself appeared with stores and other businesses. The Electrical Café opened in 1924 and eventually became Pea Soup Andersen’s.

Water Well Inspection Service in Buellton

Because a water well is a private water supply, testing the quality of the water is the responsibility of the property owner. Contaminants from the soil can affect the taste and appearance of the water, as well as its fitness for drinking. Occasionally bacteria can find their way into a well and cause the water to be unsuitable for consumption. It is important to have the water tested at least once a year, after a flood, or when there is a change in the taste or appearance of the water. While this may be done using a do-it-yourself test kit, it is important to contact a qualified professional should the results show any contamination.
