Borehole Drilling & Well Drilling Services
Teckna Group are an industry leading water well drilling company. We design and provide well-drilling services, geothermal drilling, water boreholes, soakaway boreholes and monitoring boreholes across the United Kingdom.
For applicable projects, we also install GSHP borehole connecting pipework and manifold chambers. This applies to systems that require flushing and cleaning of the pipework, glycol addition and design.
At Teckna Group, we pride ourselves on providing a start to finish service, covering all aspects of the job at hand. We design, specify and install water boreholes complete with filtration, pumping and control equipment. The experienced team of borehole experts at Teckna Group have dealt with a wide range of projects – both private and commercial.
All work is completed to the highest standard possible; utilising UK leading manufacturers and suppliers such as MGS & Boode. Our suppliers work to UK industry standards or higher for water well and ground source heat products.
Our drilling equipment is specifically designed for what we drill and comes from leading manufacturers such as Hutte and Comacchio. Our mud treatment units, which enable us to keep the drilling site clean, are from Tibban and Comacchio.
Specialised Grouting equipment designed for geothermal drilling allows us to test the loops prior to installation and then mix the grout to design specifications. Following this, we inject into the borehole to provide a properly functioning GSH Borehole Loop.
We also carry and maintain the following insurances for projects we undertake:
- Employers liability – £10million
- Public liability – £5 million
- Products & Pollution liability – £5 million
- Professional indemnity – £1 million
- Contractors all Risk – £250,000
- Hired in Plant – £100,000

How is a borehole drilled?
Borehole drilling creates a deep but narrow hole in the ground. Once the drilling is complete the borehole is then secured and reinforced with steel. At Teckna Group
we ensure the efficient completion of your borehole drilling project. Once our expert team of hydrologists have assessed the type of ground we are working on we get to work. We have a wide range of drilling equipment
perfect for a variety of environments and ground types.
How much does it cost to drill a borehole?
The cost of your borehole will depend on a variety of factors. They include the depth of the hole, the pump system and the wellhead used as well as the amount of water you will need. Contact

How deep should a borehole be?
A water borehole installation
is normally drilled to depths between 50 and 70 metres. In certain cases, however, boreholes can be as deep as up to 200m. The depth will be determined by the location of the hole and the geology of the area.
How long does a borehole last?
A properly constructed and maintained borehole drilling project will last for many, many years. As the technology used to drill the holes, and to line them, improves the lifespan of a borehole increases with it. New lining materials are better equipped to prevent a borehole from collapsing.
Do I need permission to drill a borehole?
Anyone who is a landowner in the UK is legally entitled to extract water from a borehole for their own use. However, depending on if you wish to use more than 20,000 litres a day you will need to obtain an abstraction licence from the government. You will need ground analysis for where you wish to install a borehole before any work begins. Please get in touch to arrange a water borehole prognosis
How often should borehole water be tested?
We recommend borehole water is tested at least every 12 months. We are experienced in performing the relevant tests. Once we have finished the construction of your borehole, we will test the water produced at a UKAS laboratory. We perform both chemical and bacterial tests and analysis. The results we are given will determine the type of filters you will need to have fitted.
