Water is an essential need in our daily lives. We drink it, use it for taking baths, for laundry, for cooking, for cleaning, for flushing the toilet, washing your beloved car, and almost every other things.
But, if you need extra water to fill in swimming pools, flourishing your beautiful garden, or maybe to service a multi-hectare irrigation plan, then there is nothing better than borehole that beats a source of cost-effective water where it is needed.
Boreholes are drilled and lined with a good casing and screen. Just around the screen, an annulus is placed and then packed with rounded inert silica sand or gravel that acts as a filter. To prevent polluted surface water to enter the borehole, a seal near the borehole’s top closes the drill holes in the pipe. After that, a sealed chamber is installed that houses the surface valve and well-head and a stainless steel pump is submerged into the hole.
If you think you might need a borehole at home, there are a few things you need to know first before installing one:
1. Dry Holes: Because this water supply is too deep, drilling contractors cannot guarantee that the borehole will hit the water. Therefore, you shall take a risk and regardless of the result it yields, you will still be responsible for the cost of the borehole.
This means that the process of drilling, even though the contractor has taken reasonable care, unavoidable damages might still occur on your property, particularly in garden areas. In such cases, contractors cannot be held responsible. So you are advised to remove anything of value away from the drilling area or do a complete makeover in cases of damages.
