Is Your Water Well Out Of Water or Low On Volume?

Your well can be rehabilitated to produce a higher water flow. Whether it means cleaning your screen, deepening your well, or some other solution, our water well drilling teams have the tools and years of experience to maximize your water well's performance.

Well Decommissioning

When a well reaches the end of its serviceable life (usually more than 20 years) it's important that it be property decommissioned. Well decommissioning protects the aquifer from contamination. Water well decommission services include well equipment removal, disinfection, filling, sealing and capping.

The Water Well Drilling Process

These are the main steps involved in drilling a water well.

  1. You call us with your property's statistics and location.
  2. We let you know if you qualify for a well permit (as determined by the Washington State Department of Ecology).
  3. You receive a quote over the phone and by fax.
  4. Your water well drilling job is scheduled.
  5. We contact the Department of Ecology for a well permit.
  6. We visit your property, stake out your well, and determine a clear, level access point.
  7. We arrive on schedule to drill your water well.
    a. Set up a surface seal to 18 feet.
    b. Drill for water as deep as needed*.
    c. Check soil samples as drilling progresses. The driller carefully monitors the ground materials to locate the aquifer.
    d. Hit water.
    e. Install screens, if needed.
    f. Based on the ground formation, configure the well to maximize its water production.
  8. We introduce you to a reliable water pump dealer who installs your pump and plumbs it into your home, usually within 1 to 2 days.

* Well Depth

Successfully drilling water wells is a blend of art and science. Your drilling team has the equipment to drill as deep as needed combined with the skills and experience to successfully locate the aquifer.

Water Well Drilling Equipment

  Foremost DR-12, dual rotary drill can advance 6"-12" casing up to 1500'
  Portadrill 524, a mud rotary drill, can advance 12" hole up to 2000'

One of our most powerful drilling rigs is the Foremost DR-12 dual rotary drill. The dual rotary drill advances the casing and drill bit simultaneously, guaranteeing you'll get your casings down while ensuring your hole won't cave in. By inserting the casing without hammering it into the ground, your casing remains straight, intact and firmly seated in the bedrock. On top of all this, the dual rotary drill means a faster and quieter job - reducing your associated cost and disruption.
