Hanson well drilling Complaint - Look around before calling Hanson
NASSAU, NY -- Last August our well went dry. At that time we had a 1 month old infant so water in our home was not optional. We called Hanson well drilling (the name on the well we had) They told us it was the pump. $1800.00 later still no water. Then they said our well was dry and wouldn't lift another finger until we gave them $5500.00. We scrambled to get the money taking our small retirement savings to do so. All sound like bad luck so far?? All along the Hanson son, who was the only one we dealt with until it came to the money hand off ( then the owner came rolling up), said"everyone around here has 300 ft. wells. but we will stop drilling when we hit water to save you some money." Sure enough they claimed they didn't hit water until 300 ft. Our old well was 45 ft. and filling back up with water during the whole well drilling process. They left our yard a mess after telling us it would be all fixed. They didn't smooth out the ground at all leaving a huge hole for a week. Our Dogs were in and out of the hole in the middle of the yard, tracking mud and grey liquid all over our new deck, and in my home. finally some guy with a backhoe filled in the hole and that was the end of Hanson. Now we are faced with a yard that looks like a bomb hit, and sticking out of the middle is a well that is 4 ft. tall, the tallest one in the neighborhood. We did some looking around and most of the wells in the area are only 85 ft. deep, Hanson lied. Everyone else said that the well companies they used, planted grass and fixed the lawn back to how it was.
It wasn't bad enough that we had no water, Hanson raped the last bit of money we had out of us, and left our yard trashed. They lied and were rude. DON'T hire Hanson
