Hydrofracturing is a very effective method in drawing water from deep underground aquifers. This process uses a packer to force pressurized water (over 2,000 pounds p.s.i.) into a crevice of limestone or granite. The crevice gives way to the pressure, drawing water as far down as a quarter-mile from below the surface in some instances.
If a well has lost its original flow or recovery rate, a well may need to be rehabilitated. This may require acidizing, chlorinating, or bailing the well, all depending on its current status. Many older wells can be restored back to their original flow rates.
Sometimes referred to a drill stem test, a test drilling service will provide a good idea of the productive capacity of a potential well site.
The shore well process draws water from the shore line of a nearby water source, typically a lake or stream. A submersible pump draws the water through a fabric-filtered 36” culvert, resting on a bed of limestone screenings.
Heat Pump Holes & Geothermal Systems
These are drilled in the same manner as a water well, the only difference being the hole remains dry for a looped-line to be installed. This is then grouted (sealed) and connected to a line leading from the house.
A geothermal system is one of the most efficient and effective ways to heat or cool a home and can be installed along the same lines as a heat pump hole.

Dewatering a well typically consists of drilling a 15-24” diameter hole in the ground and pumping the water to a nearby concrete sewer prior to grouting the well.
Under Ontario law, you are legally responsible for the maintenance of your well. This also includes abandoning or decommissioning a well. Roger Boadway Enterprises offers well decommissioning services to assist you in properly sealing and decommissioning your water well.
Down Hole Video Surveys with Camera
Using a submersible camera, we can locate potential blockages or stability issues in well casings and screens.
