A Skillings & Sons well expert will test your well to determine how much it produces and if it is a candidate for hydrofracking. The depth of the well and water level are measured. Then a mechanism called a packer is lowered about 40 feet below the well pipe, or casing. Approximately 1,000 gallons of pre-chlorinated well water is pumped at high pressure into the well in an attempt to get a pressure change. The packer is then moved 100 feet deeper for a second blast. The well is flushed, the well pump is reinstalled and water is pumped out of the well for several hours for a final flush. A flow test is performed to see if water flow was improved. The entire hydrofracking process takes approximately 4-6 hours and you will have running water that same day.
If you are unsure if this process is right for your well, we can send a Skillings & Sons, Inc. representative to inspect the site and evaluate if hydrofracturing is the proper solution to your water well problems. Call us today for a consultation at 1-800-441-6281.
