Country Wide Drilling (Pty) Ltd is a privately owned company that specialises in professional drilling of boreholes throughout South Africa. Our team has more than 40 years of knowledge and expertise in this trade of business and all of our team members have a passion for what they do. Their outstanding experience and expertise are the foundation on which we built our reputation. Our employees also acquire years of experience in operating in different geological areas in South Africa.
Our services include (but are not limited to), rotary air-percussion drilling, odex drilling, water drilling, exploration for mining, drilling of blasting holes and the drilling of holes for Eskom power lines. Furthermore we have completed work for various government departments such as; the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry as well as various municipalities throughout South Africa, Eskom and mines in the Northern Cape and Middelburg. We have also done numerous projects in the private sector for farmers, at residential properties, hospitals and in rural areas. With the recent drought in the Western Cape we have drilled more than 700 boreholes.
We have extensive experience in different farming areas across South Africa and drilling depths up to 500 meters can be drilled.
Countrywide Drilling has explored the drilling process for many well-known Commercial and Industrial clients and has always delivered.
The water shortage in Cape Town has caused residential drilling to increase; we handled pristine projects with pride and delivered with efficiency.
Countrywide Drilling also provides their clients with the after service of tanks and installations of borehole pumps and water filtration systems.
Our vision is to supply our clients with the best drilling services and to assist the clients in thriving businesses and also their need for water.
Country Wide Drilling’s mission is to commit themselves to integrity and excellence through a highly qualified staff, and to be recognised for their service of unequaled drilling.

Drilling for the future, we strive to satisfy clients with efficient service and deliver value for money.
A variety of borehole drilling methods are used to assess the geophysical property of the underlying area for the drilling of boreholes in private and public sectors. The type of ground and geology of the site will determine depth of the borehole, because ground water flows differently at different locations. The purpose for drilling the borehole will also affect the water quality needed and processes used to sink the borehole successfully.
An excellent option when unconsolidated formations are too dense or cobbly for Auger Drilling. Odex is an adaptation of the down-hole air hammer system that is designed to advance casing during drilling. Once a desired depth is reached the eccentric bit can be retrieved leaving the casing in place for sampling or installations.
This is the initial phase of drilling for the purpose of determining the physical properties and boundaries of a reservoir. Exploration Drilling should occur before development drilling should take place.
The supply, installation and commissioning of a pump system depends largely on the depth of the borehole, piping and the amount of water to be pumped into the pressure requirements of the system. The borehole submersible pump will pump into a pressure tank linked to the main water supply of the borehole submersible pump, then pump out the tank using a pressure pump to the home.
Different diameter size drilling and depths required for power line poles.
Installing water filtration systems to ensure all undesirable chemicals, biological contaminants, suspended solids and gases are removed from the water in order to produce water for all household purposes.
Borehole and pump maintenance is important to adhere to in order to ensure the best returns on your investment. Quality constructed private water supply systems require routine maintenance. With regular borehole maintenance check-ups you can not only extend the working life of the borehole but also maintain its efficiency and borehole yield.
We encourage our clients to request a basic drilling quotation before a site visit..
After the completion of the site visit and acceptance of the quotation, terms and conditions allocates a spot on the drilling list.
The drilling process is planned and prepared on-site before we commence with the drilling to ensure the client’s best interest is kept at heart.
We clean the premises and surrounding area after drilling. We will strive to return the area back to its normal state. Items of value should just be removed prior to the drilling process.
A water sample is tested to establish the quality of water. Test pump installed to determine per hour flow rate of borehole and installation depth.
After the flow rate test was completed we provide you with another quote for the borehole pump and other water services requirements.
After acceptance of the installation quotation we install the borehole pump and any other installations as required.
We visit our customers after installation to welcome you to the borehole family and ensure that you are satisfied with the completed work done on your premises.
