About Us

Smiths Welldrilling is a family owned and operated Company that has been successfully drilling water wells in the Canterbury area since 1961.

Barry & Cathy Kewish purchased the business in December 2012 after working for the previous Owners for over 18 years. We have continued with the name of Smiths Welldrilling 2012 Ltd to acknowledge the Companies reputation for good quality workmanship and service.

Barry’s experience in drilling all types of water wells in the Canterbury area, Well repairs & Maintenance, Pump systems & Installation, Equipment, Maintenance and Engineering skills are invaluable.

Our Drillers and Off Siders are well trained in all facets of the industry.

Our extensive well databases and project records provide an accurate idea of well depths and flow rates for your property. This allows us to give you a per metre quote for the drilling and screening, not a lump sum quote as some Companies provide. This ensures you only pay for the actual work completed.

Whether it is Residential, Lifestyle or Irrigation, we can take you from the Bore Permit application, Well Site inspection and advice, through to your pump system requirements and ensure you have your complete water system ready for final connection.

We also offer a 7day emergency well/pump repair service if required, no matter how big or small the problem.
