The real cost of drilling a well

It is disheartening when a client calls us at and informs us that they recently spent $20,000 to $30,000 dollars to have a dry or low yielding well drilled and afterward, heard about our service.

Although we are doing our best to get the word out, that we can locate the underground aquifers best location and depth, for drilling, for a fraction of the cost. Many people who are desperate for well water are still listening to so called expert advice, from people who sell them on the idea that they have a gift for finding water, but do not have the instruments or training to actually do what they claim.

Many drillers are good at what they do, (using the right drilling method for your particular geology so as to minimize damage to the aquifer etc.) but they are not qualified to find the best drill location. This is a choice that a conscientious driller will leave to his client. So where does that leave you the client?. Usually it leaves you at the mercy of someone with no more ability to find the best well location than throwing your hat in the wind and choosing wherever it lands as your drill spot. (a technique I have seen used with little success)

The Electro-Seismic EKS method is the most accurate and cost effective method for taking the gamble out of finding well water and reducing the risk of pouring good money down a dry hole.
