Different borehole pump systems and their applications


We have had a lot of customers calling us at Nakiso BoreholeDrilling enquiring about borehole systems. When we reply and ask what type of system they are looking into, most customers are astonished to learn that there is a wide variety of borehole system applications. That is why Nakiso BoreholeDrilling have decided to write this post to explain each of these systems as well as give a short guide on the products and brands we prefer to use in our installations in Zimbabwe. That is why we believe this is the ultimate guide to borehole systems in Zimbabwe.

 Different borehole pump systems and their applications:

 1. Borehole pump to tap: This is the most basic system and also the cheapest because it generally doesn't need nearly as much infrastructure as the other systems. A borehole pump to tap system is generally where water is pumped directly from the underground water-table into a series of pipelines for your outside garden taps. Thereby, allowing you to water your garden with borehole water.

 2. Borehole pump to irrigation: This system is very similar to the above-mentioned borehole pump system. Here, water is pumped from the water table to your irrigation's main water-line. The irrigation controller is programmed to send power to the borehole pump as soon as one of the irrigation zones are activated. This system can also function as a manual irrigation system which is simply connected to your exterior garden taps. So therefore as soon as you open the tap it will send water to your irrigation system.

 3. Borehole pump to tank: This system makes use of one or more water storage tanks to store water from the borehole. So, the borehole pump sends water straight to the tanks where the water is held until it is needed for irrigation or perhaps a garden tap. In order to get the water from the tanks to its final destination a booster pump is connected to the tanks. This booster pump draws the water from the tanks and pumps it into either the irrigation mainline or wherever the customer desires.

 4. Borehole pump to the house: This final system is the most expensive system due to the infrastructure needed. Here, just as with the “borehole pump to tank” system the borehole pump sends water to the tanks. From here a booster pump pumps water into a series of filters before it enters the house. This ensures that the water entering the house is clean.

 Our clients have the choice of whether they want there borehole water to be clean enough to drink or simply for general use. This is controlled by the type of filters installed. The cleaner the water at the end, the more expensive the filters.

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.
