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 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 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.
