Boreholes

What boreholes are used for 

●    To provide household water to a rural community 
●    To provide water for a farm household? 
●    To service a multi-hectare irrigation scheme
●    To create an alternative to Municipal Water

Borehole construction includes the mobilisation of equipment to the site and back to the base, drilling per metre, casing entailing supply and installation of solid casing and screen, gravel pack, sanitary seal and well-head construction.

Whatever your requirements are, nothing beats a source of cost-effective water right where it’s needed. And in most cases, that solution is a borehole. But drilling a borehole requires some research and planning.

The process of drilling a borehole

  1. Site selection, which is used to determine whether and where to locate a groundwater production borehole.
  2. Borehole construction. This includes the mobilisation of equipment to the site and back to the base, drilling per metre, casing entailing supply and installation of solid casing and screen, gravel pack, sanitary seal and well-head construction, and well development entailing cleaning of the borehole after construction.
  3. Pump installation and test for post-construction assessment of borehole and optimal performance. Installation water storage tank and reticulation system.
  4. Hydrochemical analysis of the water needs to be done to determine the quality for an intended use.
  5. Connect to plumbing system so as to provide water for required usage.
