We had a massive geothermal field put in for our commercial building. The MacKinnon family treated us extremely fair and did a fantastic job! We are very pleased with all the work they did for us.

Called early Easter Monday morning. Came out within hours and fixed the problem. Good old-fashioned service from the Valley Boys. Job done and cleaned up in no time. They do make water great!

Trevor P

Very good service. That sums it all up! They sent a really nice friendly guy out here to help me install my dual-stream pitless adapter. He was really professional. He helped and showed me how to do it.
