TURNKEY BOREHOLE SOLUTIONS
At Whatley & Co we have the ability to provide a full turnkey borehole solution for country estates, farms equestrian centres, domestic dwelling and more. All of our work is done in-house with our own machinery and our own engineers. We can provide site surveys to assess the viability of a successful borehole, provide a quote with no obligations and talk you through the process in full without all the jargon - We can then drill the borehole, supply and install all pumping equipment , complete all civils works, install any water treatment equipment when required and ensure that we supply you with clean water to suit your requirements.
We only install top quality equipment, this allows us to stand behind our work and warranty our services. We also provide our borehole drilling services for ground source heating systems, working with the best installers across the UK to provide our customers with efficient and cheap heating solutions.

We have engineers working every day detecting and repairing leaks on damaged and old pipework. IF you have a leak, give us a call and we can discuss the best course of action.

Here at Whatley & Co we have a proud history of distributing, servicing and repairing water pumps. Dealing predominantly in Grundfos and Lowara, we only fit the highest of quality pumps to insure that you always have access to water when needed.
WATER ANALYSIS & TREATMENT
We work closely with Wessex Water Scientific Centre to analyse water. All boreholes we drill are analysed as a matter of fact for various content such as bacteria, chloride, nitrite, nitrate, PH, iron, hardness and much more.
Should your water need treatment to make it potable, we can install water treatment systems from simple ultra violet lights and particle filters all the way up to removal systems and even reverse osmosis plants.

Whatley & Co is one of the oldest companies in the Pewsey Vale and has been established for some 130 years and is still managed by the descendants of its original owners.
Having previously started the business of Whatley & Co in Wootton Rivers, George Whatley opened the Avonside Iron & Brassworks in 1875 (now the Pewsey Heritage centre which is located in the middle of the village) to satisfy the growing demand for agricultural machinery.
Over the years there has been much diversification from the original business of heavy engineering. As agriculture has evolved over the course of time, so has the engineering here at Whatley & Co - growing to include the manufacturing of heavy pumping equipment, hand water pumps and cast iron fabrications (evidence of which can be viewed in the stone foundry housed within Pewsey Heritage Centre).
During the war years the building was used in producing shell cases and other specialist hardware and more recently water engineering has grown and continued with the laying of pipelines, borehole drilling, irrigation and installation of of pumping equipment for (mostly) agricultural industry.
Jill and Tim purchased Hightrees on Salisbury Road and moved the company to the new site in 2005, during the same year their son, Sam, joined the company. Over very recent years the company has grown drastically, now incorporating an extensive vehicle workshop with 4 full time mechanics as well as the ever growing water engineering part of the business which currently employs 9 full time water engineers.
