Zaned - Drill to Aquifer

Original Description: Adds a drill that draws up water from the underground. Dr,INZANE's Changes: I made it compatible with version 1.0.0 or higher of Factorio and I increased water production from 75 to 750 per operation. 8 of these drills are equivalent to 5 offshore pumps. Perhaps later I will add configurable amounts of water production.

This is a mod originally by Align. Original modpage is: and the forum page is This mod originally came out around the time the fluid system got changed (the amounts of fluids got multiplied by 10). Initially, this drill made 75 water per second consuming 300 kW of power. When the fluid system changed, this drill became grossly underpowered. I have multiplied the water output by 10 to match the change to fluids. I was fond of this mod because I like burner drills, burner arms, etc. and I thought it was a neat little edit job of the burner drill, so I have decided to bring it forward into the present.
