    Default Drill a water hole

    I'm looking for a company who is able to drill a hole for water in the ground. The problem is that we have done this with the standard way and they stopped at 7 meters as there is a very hard rock layer. So what I need is a company which really drills the whole and not push it into the ground.
    Any recommendations for the south coast or SD area?
    Thank you

    We just had a wellndug by Guzman from POP. The first time he tried he hit big rocks so he tried in a different place. The next time he hit electrical wires so he stopped again. The third time was a charm we had a well. He quoted a price of 35,000 RD and that is what we paid even after all the unsuccessful tries.

    Try Ana at Ryveper in POP 809-320-9738 or cell 809-543-8154. They use a rotary drilling machine and can drill to 500 plus ft.

    They hot water at 37 feet. They saw the wires and didn't proceed therefore nothing happened.

    How deep were the wires? Was it actual wires or some kind of conduit? I guess they could "skim" past the side of a conduit, see it and move elsewhere.

    Not doubting you, but it's a strange excuse by them to move the rig. If they actually hit any wires or even conduit, the wiring would be toast.

    Don't forget you will need a submersible pump!
    I can not see "Electrical Wires" burried at 37 feet!
    I like the "HOT" water part!
