The well drilling process

Watch and see how a deep water well is bored in a limestone landscape. See the rig in action, learn how bentonite clay is used to prevent surface water from seeping in around the casing, and see what it’s like when a good supply of ground water is finally hit.

Our Well Drilling History

Edward Ted Wright is a 4th generation well driller.  Edward’s great-grandfather, John, began drilling wells, in Mount Forest Ontario, in the early 1800s with a steam engine.

John and his son Dalton made their own wooden hand pumps.  When John retired, Edward’s grandpa Dalton took over.  Dalton used a gas and wooden drilling machine.  Later, Dalton trained his son Dalt with a gas cable tool machine, often called a pounder.

Now, we drill with a diesel-powered rotary machine.

With over 100 years of combined experience, and 50 years himself, Edward Wright’s Well Drilling is able to offer customized, personalized well drilling service in a wide variety of environments.
