Johnson & Son Well Drilling has been a Sebeka-based business for over 60 years!

Run by 3rd generation owner Austin Johnson, they continue to offer water well drilling services for residential and commercial clients, as well as irrigation services. We also offer directional boring services, backhoe digging, pump repair, and well abandonment services. Johnson & Son is an authorized dealer of both Grundfos and Sta-Rite Well Pumps.

How the business got its start, 1st generation owner Doug Johnson was a man who did it all. He would build houses, install septic systems, and was a master plumber. One employee, and long time family friend, Norman who worked with Doug specialized in water well drilling. Doug instantly took an interest in the well drilling industry, and so began Johnson & Son Well Drilling. 2nd generation Rex Johnson purchased the very first mud rotary rig and continued growing the family business. Johnson & Son Well Drilling no longer builds houses, but they will design the entire well system, install, service, and maintain it.

Austin is jokingly referred to as “the water doctor” since he’s on call 24/7, 365 days of the year to handle any water emergency within the customer base which includes a 50-mile radius of Sebeka. With the purchase of an additional service truck we have expanded and improved the service and irrigation departments. Call today for a free estimate!
