Borehole Water Drilling Process

Installing a borehole can take up to 7 to 14 days from start to finish with Nakiso Borehole Drilling. This depends on the system. Sometimes it can even go to months. Once we have the results on the ground our Engineers will come back to finish everything off.

Borehole Drilling requires great expertise, skills and best quality for durability. Do you know how borehole drilling is done? Here is the process of Borehole Drilling:

Stage 1: Site Survey 

The very first thing that needs to be determined is where the water is and how we are going to get it.  The Geological Survey Method usually involves the study of geological map. These maps show the type of rocks that exists below the ground and also the direction of dip. 

Stage 2: Drilling and Casing

Once Site Survey is done, we continue with Borehole Drilling and Casing Process. On Drilling, a drilling rig is required. Once the ground is drilled casings are inserted into the drilled section of a borehole to protect and support the borehole stream.

Stage 3: Capacity Testing

Capacity Testing involves a test to see the balance between the maximum amount of water that can be pumped out of the borehole and the amount of water that recharges back from the sorrounding ground water source. At Nakiso Borehole Drilling we usually conduct capacity testing to estimate the sustainable yield and hydraulic performance of individual boreholes for water supplies.

Stage 4: Pump Installation and Water Reticulation

After Capacity testing, the Installation team will come and install a pump and control panel into the borehole. The team will leave a pump for a while until it’s producing consistently clear water. Some tests are conducted so that you will know if your water is free from minerals, metals and other contamitants.

Stage 5: Reservoir

A reservoir is a place where water is stored. Once the results are clear after pump installation, the installation team will finish everything off. Lastly a tank or reservoir is installed to ensure you have a consistent supply of water ready for use.

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.
