Dragon Drilling are the UK’s leading borehole drillers, with almost 20 years of experience drilling water boreholes in North Wales, the surrounding areas and the remainder of the UK. With extensive experience and the highest quality drilling equipment, we can help everyone from small households to large commercial customers bring a private water supply to their property.

Why Choose A Water Borehole?

A private water supply from a borehole can bring many benefits. It’s a sustainable, reliable supply of water if your property is unable to get clean or consistent water. With a water borehole, you’re able to source natural water directly to your property without paying for mains supply, which could save you hundreds or thousands of pounds a year, depending on your water usage.

What Do I Need To Know?

The water borehole drilling process is minimally disruptive, when completed by experienced crews with the right equipment. With Dragon Drilling’s compact drilling rigs, we’re able to access gardens with minimal space, and will leave just a simple manhole cover at surface level. Whether you’re a homeowner or a business, you’re able to extract up to 20,000 litres of water per day without a licence. Therefore, for most, there’s no need for a licence. If you use a lot of water, a borehole can pay for itself within a few years. When you speak with our team, we’ll help you identify your potential cost savings and the feasibility of installation before we go ahead.

Dragon Drilling offers a complete water borehole installation package, which includes everything from your initial site survey to the storage tanks, pumps, controls and water treatment you might need.

With every water borehole installation, you’ll get:


  • Site assessment
  • Geological review
  • Consultation with regulators
  • Drilling works
  • Abstraction and distribution system installation
  • Water quality testing
  • Water treatment, filtration and sterilisation


Our team only uses materials of the highest standard, with pumping and water treatment equipment secured with a twelve month guarantee. At all times, our goal is to install the most efficient, sustainable borehole at the best cost.

Water Quality Tests

Water from water boreholes is generally high quality and free from chemicals, however some water sources may require treatment. Dragon Drilling will always complete testing on the water we bring to the surface, to make sure it’s fit for human consumption, agricultural or industrial use, in line with Private Water Supplies Regulations 2017. If there are any contaminants or impurities, we can ensure the water gets the right treatment to be safe to use.
