We live above large masses of water termed as underground water. This hidden source of water contributes to a considerable amount of the water that we Jamaicans use on a daily basis. Groundwater occurs when water, such as forms of precipitation,falls on the earth’s surface and flows through the impermeable surface barriers thus allowing the water to collect and flow through an unsaturated zone.
To use this groundwater for our farming, industrial, domestic or other purposes, the water must be brought to the surface. Whilst nature may allow some of this hidden asset to emerge through the surface termed as a Natural Spring, it is our job to use artificial means of attaining this water. A pre-analyzed strategic location is selected using scientific and technological methods adapted by independent consulting hydro-geologists. Our job is to construct a geological formation, a well, by drilling to the calculated specified depth and diam eter. The use of tube wells drilled into the underlying water table is the method we use to extract this water.
Our aim is to ensure that our Jamaicans experience the efficiency and quality that we offer in our well drilling and construction service. Supporting this unique and precise skill that we have perfected, we also provide services such as core hole drilling for testing purposes and also complement water well drilling by the sale and installation of water-based or oil-based pumping equipment custom built to suit requirements and specifications. Driiling, sometimes over 300 meters beneath the Earth’s surface, is a lifetime investment that our clients take for the best interest of their company or organization. We take pride in each and every job that is presented to us and consistently deliver only the best!
