We've drilled water wells across the country for farms, golf courses, homes and even garden ponds!
No matter if it's for business or domestic use, having your own water supply has many benefits, not least saving you money.
We follow the British Drilling Association's (BDA) recommendations for water well drilling, which means our water boreholes are drilled to an exceptional technical standard. GSI's water wells are all completed with PVC water well casing. We then pack gravel over the screens and place a mikolite bentonite seal between the top of the screens and the blank pipe.
This stops surface contamination from getting into the porous rock known as aquifer that holds the groundwater. Once the well borehole is completed we install a manhole and wellhead.
We then carry out a borehole flow test to check and confirm the amount of natural water the well produces and its purity.
We've drilled for many different projects, domestic and commercial: golf courses, farms, livery yards and even ponds.
Unlike other drillers, we're confident about our ability to reach any potential water on your land – and we'll guarantee that you can draw at least 20 cubic litres per day from your well.
We ask for no money upfront, so if we complete drilling and you don't receive the amount of water we expected, you won't be charged for the whole process!
Even if your property isn't on a meter, you'll be paying for each and every drop. And it's getting more and more expensive: Predictions are that household water bills alone will rise by an average of nearly £420 a year in 2022.
If you own a business where water is a major element in its running, such as agriculture or a fish farm, the water bill is probably your main cost. Even a medium sized office based company can pay £7,950 per year.* Take out standing and sewer charges and your own private water supply means your mains water bills will evaporate.
Simply put, your own water well could save you thousands of pounds every year.
Imagine, no reliance on an external company for your water. That means no supply problems, faulty valves or burst pipes and no hose pipe bans. Your water pressure will be constant so during times of high water use you won't be affected.
Your own water source is just purer, that's why more and more people are choosing to have water wells. It's a fact that the water we drink from the tap has been through billions of people!*.
Water from a water borehole is 'greener' and sustainable. In order to make water drinkable, the process of cleaning and recycling water takes a lot of energy. The water pumped from a borehole doesn't need such treatment. It's also naturally replenished every time it rains, making it 100% sustainable.
It depends on how much water you think you'll need. The average UK household uses over 349 litres of water per day*. A private land holder can draw 20,000 litres per day without a licence, that's equal to 133 full baths or around 11,429 pints of beer.
