Before you begin drilling, you will need to have the proper sample drilling equipment that will allow you to test and make sure that your good drilling equipment is working correctly. Having a drill bit that is not functioning correctly can have serious consequences and cause you to lose a lot of money if you do not take the time to check it out before you drill. You need to have the correct pressure and fluid levels for your drilling equipment to perform correctly, especially if you are using a hydraulic borehole machine. This is something that you will have to familiarize yourself with and learn how to keep under control so that your equipment lasts for years to come.
If you have not drilled a well before, you may want to try running some sample drilling through your equipment to ensure that everything is operating properly.
