Water Well Services

Our equipment is of a very high standard and we experience fewer breakdowns because our equipment is well-maintained to a strict service schedule.  Our dual-rotary drilling (see video) is designed to prevent sticking. We can drill to a depth of 300 meters plus, with well diameters from 150mm to 600mm.
