Some Of The Most Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is it actually possible to drill a functional water well using this machine?
A: Yes, in fact, this same rig is used all over the world right now drilling functional water wells for drinking water, irrigation systems, sprinkler systems, ponds, swimming pools, even geo thermal heating and cooling systems. The biggest atvantage of the BoreMaster is that it is portable and lightweight, easily transported into back yards, hunting camps, gardens, under trees, etc., and unlike the big truck rigs, it doesn't destroy the landscape.
Q: What is the difference in these portable rigs, and the big truck rigs, can you drill as good a well as the big trucks do?
A: These portable rigs can be taken into areas where the big heavy trucks can't go, without destroying landscape in the process, you can drill the exact same water well with the BoreMaster as the big trucks do.
Q: Is it hard to operate?
A: If you can operate a lawn mower, you can drill your own water well. The BoreMaster is designed for ease of operation, even for the beginner. We provide a Step-By-Step "How To" instructional manual with each purchase. In just a few simple steps and you can be drilling your own water well.
Q: How does it work?
A: The BoreMaster features the rotary drilling method, the most modern method of drilling for water today. It is fast and efficient and until recently it was only available in large, expensive, truck rigs. The BoreMaster consists of a rotary drill powered by a gasoline powerhead with an earth cutting bit attached to a five foot length of hollow drill stem. As the bit cuts into the earth, water is pumped through the drill stem with the high pressure mud pump and out at the bit, washing the cuttings up and out of the borehole to the surface. Additional sections of drill stem are screwed on as the bit goes deeper until you reach the water-bearing stratum.
Q: How deep will it drill.
A: The BoreMaster Standard Rigs are capable of depts up to 300 feet deep, although the average depth of most water wells is less than 100 feet. Many good water bearing formations are located at around 50 to 75 feet. Is it possible to drill deeper than 300 feet? It is possible, but other factors will need to be consided. Drilling through rock requires optional special bits designed for cutting through rock, but, keep in mind that these are portable lighweight rigs, drilling through rock is time consuming and requires patience. DRILLING THROUGH MASSIVE HARD ROCK FORMATIONS IS NOT RECCOMMENDED WITH OUR STANDARD RIGS, even the large truck rigs are limited when drilling through this type of hard rock. When encountering hard rock, we reccommend moving around and try to avoid it.
Q: How do I know where to drill?
A: If you have as much as a city lot to drill on, the odds of finding a good water-bearing stratum are in your favor. The only things to consider are areas that will flood, you don't want your well flooded by rain water, and stay at least 50 feet from septic fields. Other than that, one drilling site is about as good as the other.
We provide fast customer service and shipping, and all our products come with a 3 year warranty. Our easily operated portable drilling equipment has proven itself time after time. Easily transported, the BoreMaster™ can go where the big rigs can't go.
Q: Why should I consider the BoreMaster over the competition?
A: The first key feature is the heavy duty construction, the support frame is made of a solid steel beam, no poles, no tubes, this insures a stable, smoothe, straight-line drilling process, not the constant shaking, warbeling, and rocking action commonly seen on the lighter, cheaply made rigs. Another key feature is our patent pending High Volume Water Swivel, our swivel is a high volume, high pressure, high capacity swivel, this is the heart of the rotary drilling system, this is what is needed to force the loose cuttings, gravel, and small rock up and out of the borehole when drilling, especially at depths over 50 feet. Everything about the BoreMaster equipment is quality, heavy duty and made to last a lifetime. And we guarantee that you won't find a better price on another "comparable" drilling rig with as much high quality and with all the key standard features, found in the BoreMaster products.
