Video Survey

Video Surveying is the first step in inspecting for damage such as loss of production, corrosion, casing breaks, holes, splits, and other problems.

Prima Pulse Cleaning

Prima Pulse Cleaning is the use of a high explosive to clean perforations, gravel pack, formation and uncased open holes which will result in a higher yield.

Brushing & Swabbing

Mechanical Brushing and Swabbing is the method we use to remove encrustation and growth plugging water entrance areas, gravel pack and formation. This is usually followed by removing the debris and any existing fill on bottom. See “Air-lifting”

Air-lifting

This method is removing any debris and fill caused by brushing and swabbing or a stand alone procedure to remove existing fill. The best way to describe Air-Lifting is that we’re vacuuming your well.

Chemical Cleaning

Chemical Cleaning is the use of acid, oxidizers, mud breaker disbursements or whatever the proper chemical needed to cure the problem in your well.

Blasting

Use of Prima Pulse Cleaning to open up plugged perforations, gravel pack and formations. “Blasting” is the use of high explosives to perforate, split, rip and cut casing. “Blasting” can also be used to blow off stuck pumps, tools, drill pipe and casing or any other obstructions.

Repairing

Repairing is done by a couple different ways. One, is to cold fuse a stint type steel liner inside the existing casing for holes or breaks. When there are too many holes, enlarged perforations and/or breaks, we can reline sections with a variety of casing materials or the entire well. (Depending on conditions)

Destruction

To Destruct an existing water well that is no longer in use or needed must be done by a Licensed C-57 (Water Well Drilling) Contractor. First, we obtain the proper county permit. Then installing trimming pipe to bottom and pressure grouting the proper sealing material from the bottom of the well to 5 foot below grade surface. We then set of an explosive charge to ensure proper sealing material gets into annular space outside of casing. This is usually followed by removing the top 5 feet of casing so that all work can be done on ground level. Then back-filling with native materials to top of grade surface and filing proper well completion report with the Department of Water Resources.

Sealing problem areas

Whether it’s contamination or unwanted debris being pumped from your well, we can seal off the problem area. This is done by several ways. One way is to use a stint type liner with a rubber backing sealing material and pressed and cold fused at necessary depth. Another way is to perforate and remove gravel pack from the problem area and putting in a seal and pressure grouting, sealing that area off. The third way is grouting up the bottom problem area. This is done with trimming pipe to ensure grouting placement only in bottom. The fourth and final way is to install a smaller diameter inside liner and grout sealing between the two casings.
