Hydrofracking was originally developed in the oil drilling industry, but is used today in the water well drilling industry as a well development process.
Hydrofracking is a process that is done on a new or existing well, that has a very low well yield or does not have a yield at all. Hydrofracking is done by installing an inflatable packer at a depth below the well casing. The packer is then inflated so it is stable in the desired frack zone. Water is then forced into the rock formation under high pressure. The water then goes out the fractures of the rock formation. This enlarges and cleans the rock fracture allowing more water to return to the well, resulting in a higher well yield.
Hydrofracking is not a guarantee, although we do have an average success rate of 95% for increasing the water yield.
