Enhancing Borehole Integrity: The Advantages of Double Casing by Nakiso Borehole Drilling in Zimbabwe

In the arid landscapes of Zimbabwe, access to a reliable water source is of paramount importance for both rural and urban communities. 

Borehole drilling has emerged as a crucial solution to meet this demand. Nakiso Borehole Drilling, a pioneering company in Zimbabwe's water infrastructure sector, has introduced an innovative technique known as "Double Casing" to fortify boreholes. This method involves the insertion of a smaller diameter casing into a larger one, significantly enhancing the borehole's structural integrity and mitigating the risk of siltation. 

In this article, we delve into the concept of Double Casing, its benefits, and how Nakiso Borehole Drilling is revolutionizing water access nationwide.

Understanding Double Casing

Double Casing is a specialized construction technique that has gained prominence due to its ability to reinforce boreholes against various geological challenges. The process entails the insertion of a smaller diameter casing (140mm) into a larger diameter casing (180mm) within the borehole.

This dual-casing system forms an innovative barrier that serves multiple purposes, from enhancing the borehole's structural stability to preventing silt and debris from entering and compromising the water source.

Strengthening Borehole Structure

One of the primary advantages of the Double Casing technique is its ability to enhance the overall structural integrity of a borehole. Geological formations in Zimbabwe vary widely, and some may pose challenges in maintaining the borehole's stability. By incorporating an additional layer of casing, Nakiso Borehole Drilling effectively reinforces the borehole against potential collapse or deterioration, providing a lasting solution for communities in need of reliable water sources.

Siltation Prevention

Siltation, the gradual accumulation of sediment and fine particles within a borehole is a common issue that can degrade water quality and diminish the borehole's efficiency. The Double Casing technique acts as a barrier, significantly reducing the risk of siltation. The smaller diameter casing serves as a filter, blocking larger debris and sediments from entering the water source. This ensures that the water extracted remains clean and usable, benefiting both human consumption and agricultural purposes.

Advancing Water Sustainability

Nakiso Borehole Drilling's innovation in utilizing the Casing technique aligns with the broader goals of water sustainability and resource management. By fortifying boreholes against geological challenges and siltation, the company contributes to the longevity of water sources. This is particularly crucial in regions where water scarcity is a pressing issue. The implementation of Double Casing not only secures immediate water access but also establishes a foundation for future generations to rely on these vital resources.

Local Impact and Community Empowerment

The impact of Nakiso Borehole Drilling's Double Casing technique extends beyond the technical aspect. By providing communities with fortified boreholes, the company empowers local populations with a sustainable water solution. Access to clean water is essential for various aspects of life, from ensuring public health to supporting agricultural activities. Through its innovative practices, Nakiso Borehole Drilling plays a pivotal role in uplifting communities and fostering resilience.

In the realm of borehole drilling, Nakiso Borehole Drilling has emerged as a trailblazer, introducing innovative solutions that elevate the standards of water infrastructure in Zimbabwe. The Double Casing technique, with its reinforcement capabilities and siltation prevention features, showcases the company's commitment to ensuring sustainable water access for all. 


As water scarcity continues to be a global concern, initiatives like Double Casing stand as a testament to the transformative power of innovation in addressing critical challenges and securing a better future for generations to come.

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.
