Also known as hydrofracturing, and simply fracking, hydrofracking can establish a water source for a new well or increase water production in an old dried-up well. When performed correctly, this process poses no risk to your surrounding landscape. Our team at Rhude Well Drilling will bring skill, expertise, experience and quality equipment to your project. Whether your well is located in Sudbury, Lively, Chelmsford, Val Caron, Hanmer, Garson, Espanola or beyond, give us a call. We'll be happy to provide a free, no-obligation quote.
Hydrofracking involves injecting high-pressure water through your drilled well into the rock formations surrounding it. It widens fractures in the bedrock and extends them further into the structure, increasing the network of water-bearing fractures supplying water to your well. After we have completed this process, we will perform a flow test to ensure that your water flow has improved! Call us today to learn more.

Why would someone choose to frack their well?
Hydrofracking can significantly increase the flow rate of water into your well. The beneficial effects of hydrofracturing are usually permanent and achieve a satisfactory water yield for less cost than drilling a new well. The success rate for hydrofracturing has a national average of 95% success making it the most effective well development tool available. Another option is to deepen you well, but we typically recommend hydrofracking as a first option.
How long does hydrofracking take?
Approximately 4-6 hours. However, it is standard practice to sanitize a well after any maintenance or well development work. Therefore, you may have to wait 24 hours before using your well water.
