Some of the Key points of Borehole Installations, Maintenance, Repairs and Replacements

  • Pressure tanks and pressure switches
  • Flow control
  • Pump start relay (single phase and three phase)
  • Borehole Control Systems (Electrical and Pressurized)

Installation of variable speed gear drive systems to booster pumps

By adjusting the variable speed of the booster pump, this system will increase the performance or decrease the performance of the pump according to the specific water requirement. This leads to up to a 30% electricity reduction when the booster pump is in operation. For example, where a booster pump is directed, water flow into a house (or tap) does not require anywhere near as much water flow and pressure as when water flows into an irrigation system.

The variable speed gear drive will adjust the operational performance of the booster pump according to these variable water requirements mentioned above. This leads to massive electricity savings and prevents wear and tear on the operation of the booster pump.

Borehole Yield Tests:

  • Yield tests on boreholes for certification purposes on transfer of property.
  • Borehole yield test old borehole wells/holes to determine viability.
  • Yield tests on newly drilled boreholes to determine borehole pump/motor requirements.

Borehole Drilling & Divining Process

  • “Borehole Divining will use the latest hydrological methodology to establish where you are most likely to find water on your property.
  • Our drilling partners will then drill the hole in the position specified by the borehole survey.
  • Once the hole has been drilled, ND Boreholes & Irrigation will conduct a yield test and then install the necessary borehole setup and supply according to the yield results and any requirements you may have for the borehole meter.
  • We will thoroughly test the water and design a filtration system around the water supply before feeding it into the house to ensure it is fit for human consumption.”

Frequently Asked Questions

How deep does a borehole need to be?

The depth of a borehole depends on various factors, including the geological structure of the area and the intended use of the borehole. In general, residential boreholes are usually between 50 and 100 meters deep, while commercial and agricultural boreholes can be deeper.

How long does it take to drill a borehole?

The time it takes to drill a borehole depends on several factors, including the depth of the borehole, the geology of the area, and the drilling method used. In general, it can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks to drill a borehole.

How often should a borehole be serviced?

Boreholes should be serviced at least once a year to ensure that the pump and other components are working properly. Regular maintenance can also help prevent costly repairs and extend the life of the borehole.

What is the lifespan of a borehole?

The lifespan of a borehole depends on several factors, including the quality of the borehole construction, the geology of the area, and the frequency and quality of maintenance. With proper maintenance and care, a borehole can last for several decades.

What is the cost of drilling a borehole?

The cost of drilling a borehole varies depending on several factors, including the depth of the borehole, the geology of the area, and the drilling method used. In general, residential boreholes can cost anywhere from several thousand to tens of thousands of dollars, while commercial and agricultural boreholes can cost significantly more. It’s important to obtain a detailed quote from a reputable borehole drilling company to get an accurate cost estimate.
