At Teckna Group, we supply water borehole drilling throughout England, Scotland and Wales. Following your water borehole prognosis, our work will encompass a complete borehole drilling service, from initial consultation to water abstraction.
We use a variety of methods to enable water borehole drilling to be completed efficiently. The methods that we employ ensure borehole drilling can be completed effectively and to the highest possible standard. Water borehole drilling can be undertaken even in restricted spaces or on poor ground conditions. Particularly with our especially tracked equipment were wheeled drilling rigs are incapable of negotiating access at any time of the year.
Although each project is different and has its own individual needs, water well drilling can typically be broken down into four steps.
- The first action that needs to be taken is discovering where the water is, and which borehole drilling equipment will be required to get it. At Teckna Group, our specially trained hydrogeologists will use a range of techniques to assess the geological properties of the ground that lies beneath. This part of the process also ensures that our well drillers do not come across unforeseen natural.
- Once the hydrogeologists have discovered the correct path to take, Teckna Group’s team of well drillers will begin constructing the borehole. Once the borehole drilling process is completed, necessary sections of the borehole are cased in steel to reinforce any areas that require it.
- The borehole must then be tested for a range of variables. A borehole pump is installed, and a number of tests are run to determine the impact certain measures will have on the water level in the borehole.
- Finally, a borehole pumping system accompanied with borehole pipework will need to be installed. The pump used will largely depend on the intended purpose of the water extracted from your borehole.
When domestic water well drilling is concerned the bore is often drilled and finished to a smaller diameter with the water borehole lining being 113mm to 150mm in diameter.
Water borehole installation depths are usually around 50 to 70 metres and even up to 200m. The finished water borehole is terminated in a pumping chamber, or above ground in suitable cabinets.
For Commercial borehole drilling this has a typical finished diameter of 250mm to 450mm with the bore being drilled up to 60mm in diameter and installed to depths of over 100m. These water boreholes are then lined with steel, stainless steel, PVC or a combination of them all – depending on the requirements of the water borehole.
The installation of a water borehole, both domestic and commercial, is an opportunity to save money on your annual cost of water. The implementation of a water borehole provides a constant water pressure and supply flow that is to a consistent water quality.
Once the water well drilling is completed, water boreholes that are intended to be used for drinking water should undergo the necessary testing. Teckna Group are experienced in carrying out this testing and at the conclusion of the project, will test the water produced at a UKAS laboratory for both chemical and bacterial analysis.
The results of the water test will also determine the correct type of filtration equipment that will be required to be fitted.
