A little bit about our Borehole Drilling Equipment

Drilling at appropriate diameters (from 4 inch and up to 24 inches) for the quantity of water required or to client specifications, our drilling equipment is maintained to the highest standards to comply with Health and Safety legislation which helps in making the process of drilling efficient, minimising disruption and disturbance. Drilling depths of over 400 metres are easily and quickly achievable.

When drilling for water resources the experience of our drilling staff means that constant resource and volume assessment are possible throughout the process, resulting in appropriate depths being drilled to best meet client’s volume demands.

Rock strata are progressively assessed to form an accurate record of the borehole and to assess the rocks’ strengths, aiding in the selection of appropriate support casing configurations which in turn ensures longevity and high performance into the future. Reports of the strata encountered are delivered to the British Geological Survey post borehole completion (required by law).

The construction techniques employed by Dales Water minimise the risk to the environment whilst controlling the drilling and the release of any water that is present in the rock. Where necessary we have significant experience of controlling artesian heads (water that comes out of the ground under its own pressure) minimising loss and complying with legislation in controlling artesian flow.

Dales Water have drilled for a variety of clients for many different purposes:

  • Irrigation boreholes
  • Domestic / household boreholes
  • Leisure industry boreholes
  • Dairy washdown boreholes
  • Livestock boreholes
  • Lake top up and fishery boreholes
  • Industrial process boreholes
  • Golf and race course irrigation boreholes
  • General agricultural boreholes
  • Monitoring boreholes

All boreholes and water wells are designed by ourselves but we also have experience of working to consultant specifications. If you have any questions about our services then feel free to drop us a line, we have also compiled a frequently asked questions section answering some of the questions we get asked on a day to day basis.
