WATER WELL DRILLING

More and more water users are turning to their own water supply to avoid escalating water authority charges, and to maintain control over water quality. Clients have ranged from domestic users to large scale market gardens (including a Marks and Spencer farm and the Wimbledon strawberry supplier).

By using a combination of drilling techniques, particularly cable percussion and rotary methods, we have been able to install wells in the most difficult ground conditions, including greensand, loose gravel, and putty chalk.

We have developed a high pressure jetting system for rehabilitating silted wells, and are currently engaged in a rehabilitation programme for a major water supply installer. Redundant wells up to 30 years old have been successfully cleaned out and pump tested to give increased yields in excess of 45m3 per day.
