Etter Water Well Team

Clifford Wieck

I was born and raised in Dalhart, Texas in 1972. I graduated from Dalhart High School in 1991. Then, I attended Angelo State University. My wife Sherry and I were married in 1998. We have four children: Ryelee, Bass, Skeet, and Reese.

I have been in the irrigation business for over 25 years. I started with a company in Dalhart, Texas. At this company, I worked my way up from rig hand to operator to supervisor to oversee the submersible and turbine divisions. Along with Dale Ball and Josh McCauley, we started Etter Water Well in 2008.

I am a member of The Knights of Columbus, Panhandle Hawg Hunters fishing club, and volunteer Kids Inc. youth football coach. For the past 8 years I have been head of the Quinn Wilson Scholarship committee, which gives scholarships to Dalhart High graduating seniors.

Dale Ball

In 1972, I was born in Dimmitt, Texas and raised in Plainview, Texas with six siblings. After I graduated Plainview High School in 1991, I worked at Amarillo Pump and Supply (wholesale pump supply house) from 1991-1999. My job duties included sales, technical consulting for drillers and pump contractors for ag, municipal, residential, and commercial wells and pumping systems.

Then, I worked for a water well drilling and pump contractor in the Texas Panhandle from 1999-2002. My job duties included installing, repairing and troubleshooting pumping systems. I also drilled large diameter agriculture irrigation wells.

I worked for Global Pumps and Equipment from 2002-2008. My job duties included technical consulting, outside sales, warehouse management (Phoenix, Arizona) application consultation.

In 2008, I started and continue to manage Etter Water Well (a partnership with Canadian Water Well). This partnership began with myself, Clifford Wieck, and Josh McCauley. We had two pulling units, a vision and no money. We are now operating from our original location in Etter, Texas with six pulling units, three drilling rigs and over 20 employees.

I am married to Angela Ball, a teacher at Amarillo High School. We have one daughter, Hailey Ball (age 16, a junior at Amarillo High School) and one stepson, Rhett Schuman (age 19, a sophomore at Oklahoma State University). We currently live in Amarillo, Texas.
