Surveys, Divining & Dowsing for Water - Well Drilling Uk Ltd
THE specialists in Water Surveying and Divining Solutions
From initial Site Investigation to Fresh Water in the tap
We couldn't believe how accurate your diviner was! He was right about the depth and the amount of water!

Before borehole drilling can begin Well Drilling UK Ltd will need to know a little about the geology of the area. This will give us an idea of the type of ground we will be drilling through, how deep the water table is and how deep we may have to drill down to. All we need to do this is your postcode, once we have checked the geology and hydrology of the area Well Drilling UK Ltd will make a no obligation visit to your site to divine or dowse to find the best location to drill a borehole.
In addition to predicting the position where water may be successfully found a good dowser can also indicate its portability, depth, volume, pressure and the sort of geological strata that will have to be drilled through to reach the source. Whilst most people have some idea of water lying underground as a water table, diviners and dowsers are also able to pinpoint water lying in underground streams or aquifers when adjacent drilling would only be into dry rock.
The diviner will use a V Rod, traditionally made from a forked twig of hazel, apple and willow, but can be made up from any springy material such as wood, cane, plastic or metal. The diviner will take a few things into account when finding the best location on your site. These will include access to electricity, any drainage or a cesspit nearby and any overhead cables that may be a danger whilst drilling.
If you are of the disbelieving type and you are not going to believe that a nut case with sticks is going to find your water, or if
your site is on very difficult geology, then you may prefer to use a full BGS (British Geological Survey) Prognosis Report. The report will initially determine the viability, stratum and hydrogeological formations and if any are likely to contain water and an indication of the depth most likely to find a suitable supply.
|Some things are true, whether or not we choose to believe.
We would like to point out that, although a Geological Prognosis highlights potential problems and Environmental considerations, it does not guarantee success. It may take as long as three weeks to receive the report, although we can do this for you if you require it. For the current cost of a BGS Prognosis Report and for more information in obtaining a report, visit the GeoReports page of the BGS website via the following link www.bgs.ac.uk.
