We’ve recently completed construction of a water well to supply a popular car wash facility in the Swindon area.
Working closely with the main contractor, our careful pre-planning enabled us to install a 40m deep water well in challenging geological conditions, requiring 25m of retrievable casing to be used, all without affecting the site’s redevelopment programme.
On-going site contamination issues dictated that the borehole construction had to be professionally approved and tested before use. But the results of the post-development pump testing confirmed the well would supply a clean water yield in excess of the client’s requirements.
The savings in water supply costs for our client equates to a significant increase in their future profits. What difference would a free supply of 20,000 litres of water a day make to your business?
….to get your own water well. The BBC reports today that energy and water bills are set to rise for the next 17 years so it makes ever more economic sense to have your own private water well installed. Subadra offer a ‘turnkey’ solution, dealing with everything from the initial (free) hydrogeological appraisal, applications and permits to drilling the well, installing the pump and connecting to your existing water supply. If you would like to know more please contact Duncan Eastland.
December saw us out in the middle of Dartmoor drilling water wells. Frail insfrastucture and maintenance issues had driven one Devonian farmer to drinking water distraction. The water well supplying their property was a shared supply and each year they were expected to contribute to the maintenance of the lengthy, unreliable water pipe. We were commissioned to design and install a new well to serve just their property, together with all associated pipework, electrics, buffer tank etc as a ‘turnkey’ package.
We used modern installation techniques and our Comacchio drill rig, capable of drilling in excess of 100m, to construct a 46m deep borehole lined with a modern PVC screen, a graded filter pack, cattleproof/watertight inspection chamber, ducting into the property, cabling, pipe work, pressure vessel, on demand water flow controls, piped into the existing supply and insultated against the hardest frost. All works were completed in only four days.
