In addition to providing solutions for all types of water problems, we also drill and hydrofrack wells, and are certified in all aspects of geothermal heating systems, taking advantage of our well drilling and pump expertise.
Water Testing & Treatment
The Water Shed installs, repairs, maintains and services a wide range of water treatment systems, including water softeners, conditioners and other treatment equipment. We offer service contracts that feature regularly scheduled preventative maintenance visits to keep your equipment running at full capacity all year long. We're experienced in repairing and servicing almost all brands of water treatment equipment.

Well Drilling Services
When it comes to well drilling, well assessments and well services, we're ready to help... whether you need a brand new well, your well needs repair, your pump needs to be replaced, or your existing well isn’t producing enough water and needs a boost.
If your existing well is not operating like it should, we offer professional tests and inspections to determine just what is wrong. With our thorough methods, we can isolate the issue quickly and get your well functioning properly.
The Watershed provides the following well drilling services: new well drilling, well pump installation and service, well extensions, recovery tests (flow testing), down-hole camera inspection, well deepening, well lining, well shocking, and well decommissioning.
It's hard to imagine a greater inconvenience than having to live with a shortage of water. Worse still is running out of water entirely.
A process called hydraulic fracturing or hydrofracturing is a reliable method to reinvigorate your existing well. This involves injecting highly-pressurized water into your well to open blocked seams or tap new ones and to connect them to the aquifer. More commonly called "hydrofracking", it must be carried out by a Nova Scotia Department of Environment-licensed driller.
With our long experience in hydrofracturing, The Water Shed guarantees the results of all hydrofracks for 5 years. In most cases, our certificate will guarantee well performance to a level that satisfies CMHC standards and mortgage lending facilities.
The Water Shed offers comprehensive geothermal packages that are customized for your home and property. The process includes well drilling, loop design and installation, and geothermal heat pump installation by our Canadian GeoExchange Coalition accredited technicians.
What exactly is geothermal energy? Simply put, it’s a process that uses the heat (and the cold) stored in the ground to make your home comfortable.
A geothermal system can reduce your electricity use by 30 – 66% compared to traditional heating and cooling systems. In addition to being energy efficient, geothermal energy offers these advantages:
- Low maintenance.
- Clean & quiet.
- No chance of fire or creosote.
- Automatic thermostatically controlled operation.
- Small compact size.
- Ideally suited to Canadian weather conditions.
