Hydrofracturing a Water Well

Does your well run out of water, or not produce enough water? You may want to consider hydrofracking. Originally created for the oil industry, hydrofracking is the process of pumping pressurized water into a new or existing well to help open new water veins, increasing overall water flow. Hydrofracking can establish a water source for new wells and increase water production in old or dried up wells. We can increase the flow rate 98% of time. It is so successful that we offer a guarantee on existing wells.

Hydrofracturing Process:

A Skillings & Sons well expert will test your well to determine how much it produces and if it is a candidate for hydrofracking. The depth of the well and water level are measured. Then a mechanism called a packer is lowered about 40 feet below the well pipe, or casing. Approximately 1,000 gallons of pre-chlorinated well water is pumped at high pressure into the well in an attempt to get a pressure change. The packer is then moved 100 feet deeper for a second blast. The well is flushed, the well pump is reinstalled and water is pumped out of the well for several hours for a final flush. A flow test is performed to see if water flow was improved. The entire hydrofracking process takes approximately 4-6 hours and you will have running water that same day.

 If you are unsure if this process is right for your well, we can send a Skillings & Sons, Inc. representative to inspect the site and evaluate if hydrofracturing is the proper solution to your water well problems. Call us today for a consultation at 1-800-441-6281.
