Residential Wells: 5 - 6"
All our Residential wells are drilled with a minimum of 40 feet of casing. The casing is sealed with a Bentonite grout using a perfected method only practiced by Manderson Well Drilling. See Grouting The Casing below for more details.
All wells are left with a Vermin-Proof cap.
We test water for Nitrates, Salinity, Conductivity, & Temperature while drilling on site.
All wells are disinfected upon completion.
GPS coordinates are taken at each well. All information concerning a well is recorded in a well report and a copy is sent to the home owner and the Department of Environment.
Commercial/Industrial Wells: 6 - 18"
We have equipment that can drill wells up to 18 inches in diameter.
We can also Pump Test from 10 to 1200 gallons per minute.
During Pump Testing, the flow is measured by a digital water meter.
The information from the well is collected by water level dataloggers. These probes use infra-red data transfer technology. To record the water level, temperature, & conductivity of the water in the well. Data from the probes are monitored and recorded at the drill site with a laptop.
Grouting The Casing
Having a properly grouted casing is very important. If not, the well may be vulnerable to surface water containing harmful bacteria like Ecoli, and other contaminants such as Nitrates.
At Manderson Well Drilling, we use a grouting method with Borehole Air Packers (see left). These packers expand under air pressure inside the bottom of the casing. The bentonite slurry is then pumped through the middle of the packer. Forcing the grout up, and around the outside of the casing to the top of the ground. Filling any cavities in the rock or till on the way. This creates a perfectly grouted casing seal which is guaranteed by Manderson Well Drilling for as long as you have your well.

The Casing Test
At Manderson Well Drilling, we invented a way to check the casing for leakage in, or at the bottom of the pipe. This is done by putting the well under air pressure. The water level is pushed down to the bottom of the casing while a downhole video camera is used to inspect the welds and seal at the bottom. If there are any leaks in the casing. Or if the seal at the bottom of the casing is leaking. It can easily be seen with the camera when the well is under pressure.

Downhole Video Cameras
We currently have 3 borehole video cameras. One camera is with our drill rig, for on site troubleshooting while drilling. Another is designated for our Casing Test. And the third camera is available for troubleshooting in general. Video can be recorded on DVD at owners request.
