Why Should You Consider A Borehole?

The Primary Benefits of Using a Borehole: Boreholes have been a source of water for centuries. Despite this, their benefits are still relatively unknown to a lot of business owners. 

A borehole is a general term used to describe a deep hole intended to tap a natural resource, whether that be water, oil or another liquid.

The most common use of boreholes is as a self-sufficient water source for businesses. A deep hole is drilled down to the water source, the sides of the well are secured and a pump is installed to draw the water to the surface.

But why would a business choose to invest in installing their own water source, rather than using a mains water source? There are a number of benefits to boreholes that we have examined in this article.

The Self-Sufficient Edge

Many consumers cite the fact that boreholes provide a self-sufficient edge as their primary benefit. The water contained within these holes has accumulated as a result of rain and natural run-off, so the consumer is merely accessing a resource that has accumulated as a result of the topography of their region.


There is, therefore, no reliance on third party machinery or processes for the water supply. While mains can encounter problems from time to time, boreholes are completely independent of such risks. 

Some of the issues which can be avoided by using this type of commercial water source include:

1. Supply problems.
2. Faulty valves or burst pipes.
3. Low flow rates during times of high demand.

Boreholes offer a continuous supply of water at constant pressure. Furthermore, the chances of a fault are dramatically reduced due to the fact that the entire system is only meant to serve a single property.

Economic Advantages

Water is a natural resource which has grown increasingly expensive over time. A borehole accesses an existing supply of water; completely eliminating any type of middleman from the picture. 

The Potential for a Financial Return


Not only can this type of commercial water source save money, but it may also help consumers turn a profit. The primary reason for this observation is that a borehole is considered to be a type of building improvement. Similar to other systems such as solar panels or a new roof, a borehole can add value to a commercial property. 

The Financial and Environmental Edge


Ultimately, these resources are able to provide invaluable benefits to the modern property owner. Although the principle of boreholes has changed little over the years, there is no doubt that their commercial and financial appeal is on the rise.

We should also mention that these are environmentally friendly means to access a liquid which is vital to our very survival. Enjoying this “liquid” asset has never been easier.

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.
