Commercial boreholes: the benefits

Many organisations around the UK use large quantities of water each day. Whether it is for manufacturing processes, washing facilities or drinking water, switching from mains supply to a private water supply can offer many benefits. These include:

  • Major cost savings
  • Constant flow and pressure even during peak demand periods
  • Reliable water quality
  • Improved business continuity and reduced reliance on external factors

Understanding commercial water supply boreholes

A commercial water supply borehole is classed as a borehole that requires a licence.

In England and Wales, every water well with an abstraction of more than 20,000 litres/day (20m³ or 20 tonnes) requires a licence.

In Scotland and Northern Ireland a licence is required for an abstraction of more than 10,000 litres/day (10m³ or 10 tonnes). 

We are capable of drilling production boreholes to depths of up to 500 metres and, using our heavy-duty, track-mounted drilling rigs we can access difficult locations with a minimum of fuss and site preparation. Our reverse circulation drill heads are also capable of drilling up to 40” diameter.
