Water Divining

Water divining has been used for centuries to find and locate underground water streams, bores and pipes as well as lost and buried items.


This technique helps us determine whether there are any potential drill sites and the flow rate, quality, and drill depth of the water.


Even with today’s modern technology, water divining is still a very popular and successful way to find underground water, which can then be used to install a water bore.

When I start any divining project, off-site I use a map of the property to work out if there are any locations on the property that are suitable for a bore.


Using the map, I can determine whether there are suitable spots for drilling a bore on the property, the quality of the water, the required drill depth, and the water's flow rate. I can also check whether the water is suitable for drinking, stock, or irrigation use.


Once a potential drill site has been located, I come on-site to the stream or streams and mark out the exact spot to drill the bore. I also confirm the quality, depth, and flow rate of the water, which vary depending on the location.

In addition to water divining, we also do water shifting, which uses various techniques (must be done on-site). Instead of finding a new water source and drilling a new bore, a stream of underground water can be pulled into an existing bore or stream location to increase the flow rate.


Water shifting has helped our customers save thousands by eliminating the need to drill, install, and maintain new bores.

With or without technology, there is never a 100% guarantee that underground water will be found, but we have a success rate of around 92% to 93%.


I always suggest that before drilling, you get a second water diviner in so that you see if our recommended spots are the same. That way, you can drill with the confidence that you are very likely to find water.


Cost: $250.00 for pre-assessment (map divining) and on-site divining + Travel: $35.00 per hour.

GST included.

What clients say...

"Unbelievable. Where he said there was water, there was. He even got the flow rate and water quality right." John, Gympie QLD

"Worth the money. After drilling two holes with no success, Heinz found us the right spot to drill a bore with enough water to support our livestock. Save yourself the unnecessary cost of unsuccessful drill attempts and call Heinz." Darren, Roma, QLD

"As water drillers, Heinz's water divining gives us an accurate location, a clear idea of the flow rate and the water quality and the number of quality drill sites available on a property. Heinz is also honest when there are no viable drill sites, saving us and the client time, money and stress. Couldn't recommend Heinz more." Joel and Casey, Sunshine Coast Hinterland, QLD
