Drillwell Enterprises Ltd.
Vancouver Island Water Well Drilling, Hydro-Fracturing and Drilling Specialists
is British Columbia's largest water well drilling contractor,
employing 12 certified journeyman water well drillers. A fleet
of 11 drill rigs of varying size and capabilities insure that the
company is prepared to meet practically any drilling challenge.
The year 2010 marks 45 years in business for Drillwell, and
the successfull completion of over 6,ooo BC and Vancouver Island water wells.
Although we drill holes up to 36 inches in diameter, and up to
1,500 feet deep, the typical domestic Vancouver Island water well is 6 inches in
diameter, with an average depth of about 150 feet.
Water wells for domestic use are our main focus, and we have
the knowledge, experience and equipment to help you get the most
out of the ground that Mother Nature laid down. Our well drillers have
been called on to help with difficult drilling projects in Africa,
New Guinea, and the Caribbean.
Vancouver Island Groundwater
is one of our most valuable natural resources. Even though
most large cities in British Columbia get their water from surface sources such as
lakes, rivers, and dams, it is estimated that there is ten times
as much fresh water below the land surface than in all the lakes
and rivers combined. On Vancouver Island, groundwater is a far safer water source than
surface water because it is protected by soil or rock, and is
not so easily contaminated. A properly constructed water well
is the best way to insure that the water you drink is safe and
Pricing for Vancouver Island water well drilling is usually done on a per foot
basis. Drive shoes and well screens are extra, but at Drillwell
there are normally no hourly, consultation, or developing charges.
