Fracking is a scary word for some people because of its association with certain oil mining practices—but hydrofracking for well water is nothing to be afraid of!
When you perform hydrofracking for well water, you’re doing it to find untapped groundwater so you can increase your well’s water yield and, by extension, your water pressure.
In fact, when you’re battling a low water yield on a regular basis, hydrofracking is one of the most reliable solutions. And at Goold Wells & Pumps, we provide hydrofracking services to local private well owners who need to increase the amount of groundwater available to them. For many of our clients, it makes a huge difference.
So, here’s a brief look at what hydrofracking is and how to know if it’s right for your well. Keep reading!
What Is Hydrofracking?
For our purposes, hydrofracking, a.k.a. hydrofracturing, is the process of injecting high-pressure water jets into the bedrock that surrounds a well shaft. The impact of the water jets widens fractures in the bedrock, causing them to extend further into the geologic feature. As a result, a new water source for your well is created.
Is Hydrofracking Right for You?
Unfortunately, not every property is suited for hydrofracking. Only wells that receive their water via fractures and fissures in surrounding underground bedrock will benefit from a well fracking procedure.
However, when hydrofacturing is a suitable solution for your well, you could see improvements ranging from modest to dramatic. After hydrofracking, an increase of 0.5 to 5 gallons per minute can typically be expected, but increases could be even greater depending on how low the yield was to begin with.
So, if you’ve been experiencing chronically low water yield from your well, call Goold Wells & Pumps to find out if you’re a good candidate for well hydrofracking. Using powerful, state-of-the-art equipment (including camera scopes), our well contractors will safely inspect your well and perform hydrofracking to deliver the results you need.
