What Is A Borehole - Borehole Drilling Basics in Zimbabwe!

A borehole is a long, narrow well drilled to access underground water. Before drilling a borehole, Nakiso Borehole Drilling will need to make sure that there is a viable water source to tap into. 


This is an aquifer, a rock that holds water below the surface. The water stored within could have been there for thousands of years or could be feeding to a stream somewhere else. By drilling into it, the pressure from below enables you to access the water.

Obviously, it is important to discover where an aquifer is before we drill.

Where we are based, in Harare and the surrounding areas, we will usually drill to around 40-60 metres. This is the best depth to reach an aquifer, although depths will always vary depending on the geology of the drilling location.

Once Nakiso Borehole Drilling has been drilled, we install a pump and a pipe to bring the water to the surface before designing a distribution system based on our customer needs.

Then we will help you maintain the borehole to keep it as productive and sustainable as possible. For some expert advice and answers to all your questions, contact the Nakiso Borehole Drilling team today.

We will be happy to help!

Remember, after the construction, the borehole still requires maintenance. If properly cared for, a borehole can last up to twenty years.

Five Facts About Borehole Drilling That You Need To Take Note Of:
1. Know Your Borehole Casings:The Preferred Borehole Casing In Zimbabwe Is Class 9 and 10 (Pressure Classes.)This is because Class 9 and Class 10 Casings are more collapse resistant. The strength of a Casing is often described as collapse resistance.

2. Borehole Drilling Depth: The exact depth, of where the water is located, cannot be established by the drilling contractor nor the Water Surveyor (Borehole Siter).

3. The Is No 100% Guarantee On Water: It is important to note that it is never a 100% guarantee that any hole will yield water, the amount and water quality can also not be guaranteed by the drilling contractor and water surveyor.

4. Borehole Siting or Water Surveying Is Important: Making use of a hydrologist or traditional water diviner will increase your chances of having a successful borehole that will yield a sufficient amount of water.

5. Know The Risks: The risk of the borehole drilling lies with the property owner. The client will still be liable for the drilling costs irrespective of a borehole yielding water or not.
