For water well drilling rigs, the general requirements are. It has simple configuration, low energy consumption, easy operation, strong maneuverability, multi-function and small size. In practical applications, the drilling rig must be selected based on the stratum, hole diameter and depth, and drilling method.

2. Operational Cost
It includes the cost of casing, Mud, Fuel, maintenance cost, the salary of people operating it. The rig chosen must be minimal in operational cost and higher on profit margins.

3. Drilling Method
