Increase Flow Rate & Extend the Life Of Your Well with well enhancement, also called hydrofracking, from Skillings and Sons.

  • The term “fracking” has been in the news a lot lately, with people discussing the pros and cons of using hydraulic fracturing when drilling for natural gas. What few people know is that a completely different kind of fracking is being used to improve home water supply flow. If your water pressure has diminished or your well runs out of water, it may be a good candidate for hydrofracking.

  • Sometimes, after you’ve been living in your home for a while, your well may begin to produce less water, or even fail to produce at all. While it’s a concern, it is not always necessary to abandon the well and install a new one. A professional contractor can often perform well rehabilitation to restore the water flow to provide more than enough safe water for the needs of the household.

  • New home construction in New Hampshire often means drilling a new well. Many water well drilling companies base their price on the depth of the new well, so new homeowners want to know how deep the well has to be dug to give them reliable, clean water. They know the deeper the well, the higher the cost.

  • If you’ve seen the news recently you’re probably familiar with the term “fracking” as it’s related to oil exploration.  A well-developed process that is less well known and talked about is hydrofracking, a process that can help homeowners to improve well water yield.
