We drilled this water well in Osoyoos. This customer needed water for their property and we were happy to drill them a new well. The blossoms in the orchard smelled so good.
Water! The customer needed water and that's we gave them. Well Drilling in the South Okanagan!
Drilling water wells in the sunny Okanagan Valley.
Another quality water well drilled by the Kelly father/son team. Way to go guys! No need to worry about staying 6' apart at work for these two. These two are still working during the pandemic. Drilling water wells in the Okanagan and Kootenay regions hasn't stopped. People need clean drinking water as well as water for irrigation. Keeping the agriculture sector going has never been more important.
We drilled this well in Rock Creek this month. The customer needed a new well and we were happy to drill it for them. What did they hit? Only 100 gpm. No big deal. We are incredibly happy that this customer has a new drilled well that will produce enough water for whatever they want to do.
Do you need a new well? Are you worried about not being able to get clean water? Don't worry, we've got you covered. Access to water is an essential service and we are working.
We drilled a well in Westbridge this week. This customer needed water and we were happy to help them drill a new well.
What about personal distancing!?!? We've got that covered too. Have questions, need a quote? We can do all of our communication over the phone, email or text. We can sign contracts and send over email or fax (old school!). Site visit? We are happy to come out and view your site. It's not a problem to stay 6' away. Please forgive us though if we skip the usual hand shake.
What about your employees, how are you keeping them safe? Okanagan Kootenay Well Drilling is a family business. We are fortunate to be able to run with members of our household so there's no risk to anyone else.
No high school? No problem. Dylan's son Scott is the driller's helper. He is learning about the water well drilling trade. Maybe he'll decide to become certified and if not he'll learn a whole lot of transferable skills.
Office work? Dylan's wife Elayne handles all the paperwork. She'll be happy to email, scan, fax or whatever you need.
Payment? How do you safely pay your bill? We accept e-transfer, you can mail us a cheque or you can do a bank to bank transfer. Whatever works for you.
Still have questions? Give us a call, email, text. We'd be happy chat with you.
Do you drill water wells in the winter? This is a common question we hear. The answer?
Absolutely we do!
We drill through solid rock so a little frozen ground is not problem at all.
This customer with a million dollar view of Osoyoos needed a water well. They picked a spot and setup.
Drilling for water in the South Okanagan. It's almost like being on vacation with views like this!
Most importantly, the customer has water. We wish them well and thank them for using Okanagan Kootenay Well Drilling for their water well drilling needs.
One last picture of the view. Wow. It was a good day to be a water well driller in Osoyoos.
All set up and drilling away. There's lots of room on this site which is great for us. Having the water well drill and the pipe / water trick back to back is a great setup for us.
You can see the water coming out of the diverter hose here. It's always a good feeling when you hit water!
Here's another shot. The drill uses air to bring the water up from under the ground. We are happy this customer has enough clean, safe drinking water to satisfy their needs. Drilling a water well for a customer can be very satisfying and rewarding.
It's not too often we get to say we could walk home from work but this well was the case. It doesn't get any closer to home than this property. It was a treat going home for lunch for a change.
Finding a well driller in the Okanagan was an easy feat for these customers since we were right next door!
These lovely people now have all the water they'll need for their life in the country!
Summer for us is a balancing act between drilling water wells and farming. Early morning are spent at the drill while the temperatures are cooler and afternoons are for farming. We stopped to appreciate this beautiful owl and sunset on our way home from the hay barn. The guy does a great job of keeping the varmint population down on the hay field. The moment didn't last long though, people are where waiting for us to be there in the morning to drill them a new well and the hay was waiting to be baled the next day. Happy summer!
It was a beautiful day to drill a water well near Bridesville, BC. Where is Bridesville you ask? It's half way between Osoyoos and Rock Creek. There was a cold snap of -25 and we had to wait for it to warm up to -15! We appreciated the sunshine while we drilled this well.
I really like this picture of Dylan welding. Did you know he has to weld each piece of casing to the next as is goes down the well? He makes 2 passes all the way around the 6" diameter steel casing. That's over 37 1/2" per joint. I wonder how many feet he has welded over the years after drilling all those water wells? Just another day for a water well driller in BC.
This customer has an amazing view!! Now that they have a great water well they can start building. We wish you all the best on your new adventure at this property!
