Living in BC I never thought that I'd run out of water. Then the well went dry in February 2016. For a month I was without water. I had called a couple of drilling companies: one was too busy and couldn't do it, and the other company called me back five weeks after I had my new well already drilled by JR. JR took my phone call serious--being without water is a big problem! Within a few days the well was drilled at 160 ft. and I now have water! Thank you for your prompt service. I will recommend JR Drilling to anyone that needs a well. Thank you for your efficient service.

JR Drilling drilled a water well for me in April 2016. Danny did a site visit that was followed up by the drilling crew of Rick and Brody. The last visit was by Brody for water testing. From start to finish this was a crew that made me feel like I had chosen a good company to drill my well. Everyone knew their job and answered all my questions clearly and concisely. Not only was I pleased with the success of the project, but I was pleased with whom I got to work with. Danny was instrumental in moving the project forward and keeping me well informed of the progress of everything, including things of which I was not aware. Thanks for the great experience! I won't hesitate to call or recommend JR Drilling.

I had a tight window to complete my project. I worked with Danny to develop the plan and then Rick and Brodie executed flawlessly and successfully! Terrific customer focus! I now have the two wells I need for my open loop GeoThermal.

JR Drilling Crew Members Mike and Joe did an excellent job yesterday. They worked safely and efficiently and left a clean site behind when they were done. They made things really easy for me to supervise. Thank you also for fitting us in with your other work.

Left in a pickle by an inferior drilling company. Less then a week later, JR Drilling made time for me while working in the Slocan Valley. 57 feet later I had a well for a lot less then I expected to pay.

"Very efficient at setting large casing through blasted sandstone in the development of in-pit ""Well Sumps"" -30m depths, 12 - 20"" diameter, pump installations are quick. The entire process completed in one 12 hour shift.

I have had very good success with JR in setting 6 5/8"" casing through backfilled waste spoils right into subrop historical underground workings in coal to obtain large sized samples. Used the casing advance method. The dual rotary drive rigs (Foremost DR 24 and DR 12) are great units to accomplish difficult drilling targets."

JR Drilling has a fleet of well maintained drilling and well testing equipment, and even more importantly, experienced drillers and field crews. They are professional and safety conscious, and have helped my firm successfully complete many water well, monitoring well and well rehabilitation projects.
