Why Borehole Casing Matters: Understanding Pressure Classes for Borehole Casings

A Borehole is Just Not a Hole in the Ground:
While the basic concept of a borehole seems straightforward, the reality is far more nuanced. During drilling, the ground can be unstable, with loose sand and gravel threatening to collapse into the newly formed hole. This is where borehole casing comes in – it acts as a vital support system for the borehole walls.

The Essential Role of Borehole Casings:

  1. Structural Integrity: Casings prevent the borehole walls from collapsing by controlling movement of rock fragments, sand, and gravel.
  2. Protection for Crucial Components: They act as a secure housing for water transfer pipes, safety ropes, electrical wires, and the pump itself.
  3. Barrier Against Contamination: Borehole casings prevent surface water and shallow groundwater (which can be polluted) from mixing with the cleaner, deeper groundwater accessed by the borehole.

Choosing the Right Pressure Class for Your Borehole:

Borehole casings in Zimbabwe come in various sizes and pressure classes. Nakiso Borehole Drilling emphasizes the importance of pressure classes 9 and 10 for several reasons:

  1. Pressure Resistance: These casings are specifically designed to withstand the strong underground pressures encountered in deeper boreholes. This ensures the structural integrity of the borehole and prevents collapse.
  2. Durability and Longevity: Pressure class 9 and 10 casings are manufactured with superior strength and collapse resistance, leading to a longer lifespan for your borehole.

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.
