- CRUWMAN Drilling
CRUWMAN Drilling is a family owned and run business providing borehole drilling services throughout the country. They provide a complete service from arranging the initial survey to drilling and completion of the borehole and installation of pumping and filtration systems. A pumping system can be installed that provides constant pressure similar to, and in most cases better than, mains water pressure. Most people are aware of the fact that the earth beneath our feet contains water and that at a certain depth below ground you will reach a saturated layer known as the water table. What is less widely known is that the water beneath your property is yours for free, if you are willing to invest a little in getting at it. As a result of The Water Act 2003 anyone is now entitled to abstract up to 20,000 litres (20 tons!) of water per day without the need for a license. A common misconception is that you will somehow be charged for this water. This is wrong. Once you have invested in drilling a borehole or well, the water is free. There will be some expenditure in operating and maintaining a pump, however, in comparison to the value of the water you use, this is likely to be negligible.
