Ground Control Sand
While not overly hard ground, boring in heavy sand conditions offers a unique set of challenges such as maintaining hole integrity and excessive tool wear in highly abrasive conditions. Ground Control® SAND is designed to stabilize the bore hole by lining it with a solid “filter cake” as well as improving returns to reduce the damaging effects of sand on tools and pipe. - Also, a great lubricant for pullback.
Best Mix: 5 lbs. of Soda Ash to 500 gallons of water (pH should be maintained between 10-12) Mix in two bags of Bentonite gel for 30 minutes. Lastly add 64 oz. Bottle of Ground Control® SAND and circulate.
