What is Rotary Drilling?

Modern water well drilling is much more than making a hole in the ground. In rotary drilling, a drill bit made of tough metals is attached to a length of connected drill pipe and as the bit rotates, it grinds up the rock. The broken pieces (cuttings) are flushed up, out of the hole, by circulating a drilling fluid (sometimes called drilling mud) down the drill pipe and back to the surface. This drilling fluid serves to cool and lubricate the drill bit while stabilizing the wall of the hole. This method is used by our local well drillers to prevent possible cave-ins of unstable sands or crumbly rock before the well casing or well screen is installed.

As the drill intersects water-bearing rock formations, water will flow into the hole. Our water well drilling company carefully monitors the depth of water “strikes” and keeps note of the formations in which they occur. Then the top of the well is usually lined with a well casing. The diameter of the hole is usually an inch or two wider than that of the casing, so the space (called the annulus) has to be filled with grout. This is a crucial step for local well drillers because it prevents polluted surface water from migrating to the outside of the casing and contaminating the aquifer. Ensuring your family’s long-term health and satisfaction is the reason our local well drillers do what they do.

Screens Used By Local Well Drillers

Our water well drilling company uses Johnson Screens for our well screens. Local well drillers use these screens because they provide great benefits that others don’t. Using this style of screens provides the following advantages to your well:

  • Stop sand production
  • Avoid pump damage
  • Improve well efficiency
  • Improve pumping efficiency
  • Maximize water flow rate into the well
  • Reduce well maintenance
  • Increase well life.

Well Drilling Site Preparation

The local well drillers on our staff know water well drilling procedures inside and out. Our well drilling company can prepare the drilling site the right way, so we can avoid making unduly mistakes. With much experience, we have the knowledge to make the water well drilling process as seamless as possible for your Olympia property. The following are a few key steps to take during the site preparation phase:

  • We mark the well site with a stake marked “WELL”.
  • There needs to be at least 15 feet of clearance with no overhead wires or tree limbs.
  • The site needs to be wide enough for the drill rig and the support vehicle (about 15 feet).
