Developing a 12″ water well

Well Drilling Comments Off on Developing a 12″ water well

 

Well development is one of the most important aspects of well drilling. One of the final steps in the drilling process (before grouting and sealing) is developing the well. Once the well is drilled and the well casing has been set, we lower our drilling rods all the way to the bottom of the well. Once the rods are in place, we force really high pressure air down the well, forcing gravel and other cuttings out the well and at the same time cleaning the well screen. Well developing is very important, because it can literally make the difference between a great well, or a low water yielding well.
