Borehole Deepening in Zimbabwe with Nakiso Borehole Drilling!

What To Do If Your Borehole Dries Up? Drying out of water sources is an increasingly common problem, concerning up to 80% of Borehole Owners. 

Although the solution is not quite simple, you should not put it off. Droughts are worsening every year and hydrogeologists and well drillers are already very busy.

What Is Borehole Deepening: Borehole Deepening Borehole deepening is the process of increasing borehole depth. A drop in the water table level can result in reduced water output and even drying up of a borehole well. Drilling deeper into the ground can revitalise a borehole by getting into the water table.

Climate Change and Its Impact On Water Sources: Zimbabwe has been suffering from droughts caused by climate change for the last few years. The average annual temperature is rising and the rainy seasons are shortening. Instead of permanent rain, which supplies groundwater, torrential rains are becoming more frequent. Water from torrential rains, however, largely drains from the landscape, as the soil does not have time to soak it up. 

Moreover, the forecasts of hydrogeologists are not at all favourable - droughts are expected to increase.

Drought is associated not only with the drying of streams and dams but also with Water Boreholes. At the same time, almost a tenth of domestic households and countless cottages and recreational objects depend on their own water source. And up to 80% of them have experienced a sudden decrease in this fluid in recent years.

Does This Problem Affect You Too? Find out the cause of drying and find a solution as soon as possible to avoid the complete disappearance of the water in your well.

Find Out The Cause Of Drying Up Of Your Borehole!

Due to the lack of rain, shallow boreholes in particular dry out, where the amount of water depends on the amount of precipitation. Therefore, the excavation of new dug wells is no longer recommended today. However, the drying of the Deep Borehole is no exception, as groundwater levels are also falling and many springs are being lost. Today's borehole should be at least 60 to 70 metres deep, while shallower boreholes can dry faster.

So if you are considering getting a new borehole, focus on sufficient depth, and on also the width of it. However, drought is not the only reason for well drying out. If your existing water source dries out, clogging of the inflow may also be the reason. Therefore, find out the exact cause and have the Borehole Flushed if necessary.

However, if the problem is really drought, all you have to do is deepen the borehole or drill a new one. 

When Is It Better To Drill A New Borehole? Since the deepening of boreholes is administratively, technologically and financially very demanding, it is often better to make a new borehole. We recommend this procedure especially in the following situations:

1. Drill A New Borehole In Case The Underground Stream Diverts. This occurs most often due to long-term clogging of the spring inflow into the Borehole. The spring/ stream can thus find an "easier" way and deviate from the location of your well.

2. If a hydrogeologist finds that the spring is very weak, a place with a richer source on your land can be found. Even in this case, do not hesitate and choose the path of the new well.

In conclusion, it is important to emphasize that the problem of water shortage must be addressed comprehensively and in the long term. Therefore, learn how to save water and look at subsidies for the use of rainwater in your country - you may be eligible. 

Equip the borehole with a level monitoring system that will prevent damage to the pump and appliances in the event of a water shortage.
