We have been drilling and installing private waterwells throughout Ireland since our inception, with us having more recently acquired further large plant and equipment to allow us to drill deeper wells and install them with even greater efficiency.
Combined with our expertise and technical skill, we can offer a professional and speedy service. We have extensive experience of sinking wells in all types of ground conditions.
We also offer a comprehensive aftercare service to accommodate your ongoing needs and allay any concerns with the lifetime serviceability of your well.
We have tried and tested experiencing in servicing the three core markets for waterwells:
The initial step in your potential waterwell project is our completion of a hydrogeological feasibility study which will help us establish your needs, and we can help advise you as to the viability of your scheme.
This feasibility assessment will aim to identify the viability of abstracting groundwater for potable use.
We use site-specific information to develop an understanding of an annual water demand as well as possible peaks and troughs, e,g. daytime vs. night-time use. Where possible, water bills and meter data will also be reviewed to help provide a fuller understanding of site requirements. We’ll produce a
detailed, independent report into the feasibility of groundwater abstraction at the site, plus any
associated risks and costs. This will help us to help you make an informed decision on how to proceed to the next stage, if at all. It is our duty as a considerate contractor to provide you with this technical judgement.
WATERWELL DRILLING – AGRICULTURAL SUPPLY
Water rates can be a high cost, especially in high use agri sectors such as dairy farming.
An Agricultural waterwell can vary in size depending on the water demand from the farm. There are many factors that can effect this, including number of livestock, farm houses, sheds, etc.
Agricultural water supplies have been known save to farms throughout the country money on high public water rates, and so are used to keep the water supply indigenous to that farmstead, cutting down on rates.
The first step towards your new supply is to contact us for your feasibility study. The report will inform on the probability of finding the required yield of water and the quality you might expect. It provides key information about drift and drilling depths that will allow us to estimate more accurately the depth required, and by proxy the associated cost.
For further information on how you can substantially reduce your farm’s water bill, you can call or email us using the details supplied on this website.
WATERWELL DRILLING – COMMERCIAL SUPPLY
A commercial supply is a large production well, typically used for businesses with high water demands, such as factories, golf courses and sports pitches, vegetable farms.
Commercial waterwells are used to keep water rates at manageable levels, as organisations with high
water use connected to a public supply will often face very expensive rates bills. The first step towards obtaining your own commercial water supply is to contact us for a hydrogeological
assessment. We will consult with available records from our extensive database and perform a desk study which will factor into account your typical water demands. This will then inform the design of the well to accommodate your water demands and determine the depth of the hole. Once this initial step has been carried out, we can then provide you with a detailed quotation for the drilling and servicing of the well, including for the fitting of pumps. Our Waterwell Manager will liaise
with you throughout the project to ensure you are kept informed and that your requirements are met in full.
WATERWELL DRILLING – DOMESTIC SUPPLY
A domestic supply is a low production well, normally used to feed one or two properties. They are commonly put down in rural locations, where public water supplies are either not present, or are of poor or unreliable quality. This is due to the cost of obtaining access to a mains water supply, which is often well in excess of the maintenance of a borehole system. It is also common in areas where spring supplies are used or shared. In the warmer weather spring supplies may become unreliable, or multiple people
using it at the same time may result on excessive strain on the supply, leading to depletion. In other instances, the spring supply may become contaminated (for example, with agricultural effluent) and the water may no longer be fit for consumption.
We will gratefully meet with you to discuss your requirements and make an initial assessment as to the viability of your site for a domestic well on a free-of-charge consultation basis.
Pump tests are carried out to determine the volume of water that can potentially be pumped from a well. The well is pumped at a controlled flow rate, and the hydraulic drawdown is measured in one or more surrounding monitoring wells. The test data is used to estimate the hydraulic properties of aquifers
evaluate well performance and identify aquifer boundaries. Our pumping tests include constant rate tests, step tests and recovery tests. Water samples will be collected during the test in line with drinking water and groundwater regulations.
An independent chemical testing laboratory will analyse the chemical and microbiological parameters, and issue a full report.
WELL PUMP INSTALLATION AND SERVICING
We are delighted to offer a broad range of submersible pumps that we can supply and fit. Once the drilling of your water borehole is complete, we can recommend the most appropriate system for you.
We also offer full maintenance service contracts, plus we carry a full stock of spares and have a team available on a 24/7 call-out basis to ensure you are never let down.
