Borehole Drilling Companies
Most Borehole Drilling Companies specialize in residential and small commercial work. Borehole Drilling Companies residential work consists of drilling approximately 200 homes plus per year…way too many to list individually. Borehole drilling companies also drill several small commercial projects with fewer than 100 boreholes.
Some borehole drilling companies have expanded their drilling to include larger commercial projects of up to 300 or more bore holes as they have the equipment to do so. Drilling companies normal drilling depth for residential work is between 150′ – 200′. They generally use 3/4″ PE material down the boreholes. The commercial drilling has been in the 300′ depth using 1″ PE material down the boreholes. In most cases, 90% of their drilling workload is geothermal drilling. Additionally, they also drill many boreholes each year as well.
Borehole drilling companies’ rigs are used to drill in mostly consolidated material and hard rock. They also have grouting trailers for commercial and residential grouting applications, flush carts for both commercial and residential use, conductivity testing equipment, and many support trucks, trailers, and other miscellaneous equipment.
Drilling & Testing
Borehole allow owners flexibility and yearlong unrestricted use, especially important during drought periods when ‘city water’ is rationed. Borehole drilling companies accurately map the hydrogeology to locate aquifers beneath land needing water for lawn and plant irrigation, vegetable and aquaculture production, livestock waterers, golf course and sod farm turf, landscape plantings & nurseries, leaky ponds that require large volumes to maintain levels, and school properties where huge water demands for ball field irrigation can be met at a fraction of the cost of city-supplied water.
Borehole & Spring Completions
Borehole Drilling Companies are experienced in all borehole & spring completions, including 1) sizing & installing submersible and centrifugal pumps and pressure activation systems, 2) sizing & installing supply/delivery lines, valves and line protection, 3) required periodic maintenance of all well & spring system components.
Borehole Drilling Companies use geophysical instruments & proven techniques to locate faults, fractures, terraces, and karst aquifers found at shallow depths, and to evaluate springs flowing at the surface. Drilling then locates the new boreholes for the homeowner or farm, and often boreholes, springs, or ponds that exist on a property can be upgraded at minimal expense.
