Most domestic wells are 6 inches in diameter. The drilling process begins with an 8-inch borehole reaching at least 10′ into bedrock. We attach a drive shoe to a 6-inch diameter steel well casing. We use enough casing to reach at least 10′ into bedrock with 18 inches exposed above ground. The drive shoe creates a seal in the bedrock, and the casing will keep surface water and sand out of the well.

The depth of a well will vary depending on the area that you’re drilling in and the water table in that area. The average well is 330 feet deep, but there are many factors involved in determining how deep your well should go. These factors include the geology and underground water levels of the specific area. Our drilling technician can get a good idea of how deep the well will need to be by examining your property. The average well depth for your area, the geology, and other factors. If, after our initial drilling, there is still plenty of water available for your family’s needs, then the drilling can end. If there is not enough water, we will continue drilling until we find a suitable water source.

What Is Hydro-Fracture?

Hydro-Fracture is often used to improve or find water in low-yield or dry wells. The process involves equipment placed at different depths in the well. Water pressure is then used to open new or existing water veins to increase water production. Our success rate for this is 98%. This procedure will need our certified well driller. Be assured that your water well is being drilled by someone with experience. Our drillers have drilling experience ranging from 12 to 35 years.
