Cable tool drill rigs are a traditional way of drilling water wells and continue to be the most practical drilling method for large diameter, deep water wells in the Pacific Northwest, especially for deep wells in gravel aquifers. They provide one of the cleanest drilling operations, with the best formation samples, with a small footprint. Cable tool rigs are ideal for initial water well development, water well redevelopment, and water well rehabilitation.
From 2 in. monitoring wells to 7,000 GPM large diameter wells, cable tool drilling is proven for installing the most efficient wells. Cable tool drilling is free of drilling fluids or additives, which can cause formation plugging.
Our founder, Randy Holt, founded his clean water drilling business using cable tool drilling. He has operated cable tool rigs for over 30 years and has installed wells which produced over 7,000 GPM. We are fortunate to have some of the most experienced cable tool drillers in the industry. Our cable tool drillers have a minimum of 20 years of experience on water well drilling, well development, well rehabilitation, aquifer testing and environmental related projects.
