It is evident that more and more people are considering boreholes as an alternative water resource. And whether your reason is financially motivated or to become more self-sufficient, having a borehole installed on your property comes with many benefits. In order to get the job done the right way the first time around, there are some things you'll need to do before investing your hard earned cash into a borehole.
1. Do your homework
Find out everything you need to know about borehole installation. Borehole installations aren't just about drilling a hole in the ground and having access to pure water. First, a borehole sighting will need to be done . Then a hole will be drilled approximately 60-80 meters and a casing will be placed to secure the hole. A yield test needs to be done to determine the type of pump you'll need. Finally, a filtration system is installed if you choose to use the water for drinking purposes.
2. Ask for referrals
Ask friends, family and neighbours for referrals. Finding a reliable borehole contractor might prove to be challenging since there are many fly-by-nights in the industry. Borehole installations come at a premium and the last thing you want to do is spend money on something that's not working as promised.
3. Hire professionals
Once you've lined up a few possible contractors, get quotes and ask the right questions. Never make a decision based on price alone. Make sure the contractor has plenty experience in borehole installations with positive feedback from satisfied customers.
