What is an agricultural supply and what are the benefits?
Raeburn Drilling has been installing agricultural supplies since the mid 1980s. The main benefits are to reduce commercial water rates and provide a secure and sustainable supply for the future.
A dairy farm with a head of 200 cattle has the potential to save up to £4000 per annum on commercial water rates. On the other hand, an arable farm looking to irrigate during a dry spell has the security of knowing source is available for use. As each set of circumstances are different, Raeburn offer an array of services that can be adapted and tailored to meet your individual requirements.
How does it work?
The first step towards your new supply is to arrange a call with one of our professionals. There is no charge involved in this and it allows us to understand your requirements and recommend an appropriate course of action.
This generally involves guiding you down the route of obtaining a geological report to understand the probability of finding water on your property and at what depth. When you receive your report and possibly have your location divined, we can then proceed with sending you an estimate. Geological reports are not essential but are strongly advised.
Raeburn Drilling work in conjunction with both water divining organisations as well as the British Geological Survey (BGS).
Upon acceptance you will be allocated a Project Manager who will be available over the telephone throughout the service journey.
We install our wells in accordance with the S.E.P.A guidelines, with sealed well head units, gravel packs and sanitary seals. We believe that it is imperative to construct the borehole correctly, especially if it is a drinking water supply.
We also offer a range of agricultural boosting pumps which can be sold separately and guidance can be provided over the telephone where required.
If you are unsure or would like to discuss your requirements we would love to hear from you. You can call us between 7am - 5pm Monday - Friday, send us an e-mail, or leave your details view the LiveChat facility.
