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

Incorporated in 1965, the city of Carpinteria was named for the carpentry shops in the former Chumash settlement of Mishopshno. It has over 13,000 residents living in its 9.27 square miles. Popular among surfers, there are also seals and sea lions, gray whales, starfish, sea anemones, octopuses and other tidepool life to be seen depending on the season. The largest known Torrey pine tree on earth, the Waldholme Torrey Pine, is located in downtown Carpinteria.

The city was incorporated in 1965. Seeping petroleum is often seen along the bluffs at Tar Pits Park and occurs naturally. The Chumash people native to the area used the also naturally occurring asphalt to seal their canoes.

Water Well Inspection Service in Carpinteria

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.
