Installing a borehole involves drilling a vertical hole into the underground water table. The process starts with a borehole drilling specialist visiting your address to investigate the viability of installing a borehole system on your property. The initial visit gives the expert information about the depth of the water table in your area and the expected flow rate of the borehole. After sinking the borehole, we then install a submersible borehole pump down the drilled hole. The size of the borehole pump will depend on the depth of the hole, the expected water usage and the borehole’s flow rate.
Usually borehole water is first pumped into a water storage facility like a jojo tank before it can before it can be applied for its intended use. From the storage tank, the water is then pumped through a pressure booster pump. The size of the booster pump will also depend on the intended use of the water. Borehole pumps and pressure booster pumps can be powered by electricity or by solar energy.
Depending on the quality of the water, borehole water can be used for many things including being used for household consumption and for irrigation purposes. To determine the quality of the water, a test is conducted to establish the chemical composition of the borehole water.
