Our History

Continuing what Roger started, Bret took over and kept the family legacy going. His children, like their father, have been involved in the business from a young age.  Kyrie and Kayden plan to carry on the family operation for generations to come.
Rock Well Water Systems & Pumps was first established as Gardner Drilling back in 1978. Roger Gardner began his career by drilling wells and installing well pumps throughout North Central Washington. More often than not, if you looked at Roger’s side you would have seen his young son tagging along and helping his dad. Bret remembers dragging pipes, grabbing tools, and learning the trade on the job. He was just six years old.
Father and son worked together drilling wells and working on pumps for the next 23 years. In 2001, Roger retired and Bret officially took over the family business. Rock Well Water Systems & Pumps has since expanded the services they offer and is now able to provide turnkey solutions to their customers. Being able to handle the entire pump installation process sets them apart in their industry.

Kyrie Bergstrom

I have grown up in the groundwater industry my whole life and I am the third generation of our family company (with the fourth generation on the way due in August!). For as long as I can remember, my whole life and career has revolved around groundwater and this industry. Growing up, I was homeschooled which allowed me to really be a big part of learning the industry and how our family business functioned. Since then, I have never looked elsewhere — I fell in love with what we do and how we are able to provide an essential part of life for those in need.
