Some Of The Most Frequently Asked
Q: Is it actually possible to drill a functional water well
using this machine?
A: Yes, in fact, this same rig
is used all over the world right now drilling functional water
wells for drinking water, irrigation systems, sprinkler systems,
ponds, swimming pools, even geo thermal heating and cooling
systems. The biggest atvantage of the Hydra-Jett is that it is
portable and lightweight, easily
transported into back yards, hunting camps, gardens,
under trees, etc., and unlike the big truck rigs, it
doesn't destroy the landscape.
Q: What is the difference in these portable rigs, and
the big truck rigs, can you drill as good a well as the big trucks
A: These portable rigs can be taken into
areas where the big heavy trucks can't go, without destroying
landscape in the process, you can drill the exact same water
well with the Hydra-Jett as the big trucks do.
Q: Is it hard to
A: If you can operate a lawn mower, you can drill your own
water well. The Hydra-Jett is designed for ease of operation, even
for the beginner. We provide a Step-By-Step "How
To" instructional manual with each purchase. In just a
few simple steps and you can be drilling your own water
How does it work?
A: The Hydra-Jett features the rotary
drilling method, the most modern method of drilling for water
today. It is fast and efficient and until recently it was only
available in large, expensive, truck rigs. The Hydra-Jett consists
of a rotary drill powered by a gasoline powerhead with an earth
cutting bit attached to a five foot length of hollow drill stem. As
the bit cuts into the earth, water is pumped through the drill stem
with the high pressure mud pump and out at the bit, washing the
cuttings up and out of the borehole to the surface. Additional
sections of drill stem are screwed on as the bit goes deeper until
you reach the water-bearing stratum.
Q: How deep will it drill.
A: The Hydra-Jett is capable of drilling
up to 300 feet deep, although the average depth of most water
wells is less than 100 feet. Most good water bearing formations are
located at around 50 to 75 feet.
Q: How do I know where to drill?
A: If you have as much as a city lot to
drill on, the odds of finding a good water-bearing stratum are in
your favor. The only things to consider are areas that will flood,
you don't want your well flooded by rain water, and stay at least
50 feet from septic fields. Other than that, one drilling site is
about as good as the other.
We provide fast
customer service and shipping, and all our products come with a
1-year warranty, and Lifetime Warranty on our
standard drill bits. Our easily operated
portable drilling equipment has proven itself time after
time. Easily transported, the Hydra-Jett™ can go where the big rigs
Q: Why should I
consider the Hydra-Jett over the competition?
A: The firts key feature is the heavy duty
construction, the support frame is made of all welded high strength
tubular steel, this insures a stable, smoothe, straight-line
drilling process, not the constant shaking, warbeling, and rocking
action commonly seen on the lighter, cheaply made rigs. Another key
feature is our patent pending High Volume Water Swivel, our swivel
is a high volume, high pressure, high capacity swivel, this is the
heart of the rotary drilling system, this is what is needed to
force the loose cuttings, gravel, and small rock up and out of the
borehole when drilling, especially at depths over 50 feet.
Everything about the Hydra-Jett equipment is quality, heavy
duty and made to last a lifetime. And we guarantee that you
won't find a better price on another "comparable" drilling rig with
as much high quality and with all the key standard
features, found in the Hydra-Jett and BoreMaster
