How Borehole Drilling Works

PumpnMech Borehole Drilling’s guide to how our high-quality bore drilling service works.



Here at PumpnMech Borehole Drilling, we offer our clients an array of drilling and civil engineering services using our modern and innovative equipment, in order to provide our clients with a high-quality service, whilst also maintaining our commitment to health and safety. Our bore drilling services include water borehole, soakaway and geothermal.

What is Water Borehole Drilling?

We provide our water borehole drilling services across South Africa, which is completed once we have performed a waterhole prognosis to determine the specifics of the job – as every project is unique.

We offer both domestic and commercial borehole drilling which provides consistent water pressure and supply flow and should also significantly reduce your annual water bills.

Water borehole drilling is usually performed in restricted spaces on poor ground conditions, where wheeled drilling rigs cannot gain access. Our expertly-tracked equipment allows us to locate the issue regardless of the time of year.

This particular type of borehole drilling is typically utilised in water wells, which involves our team of hydrogeologists analysing the conditions of the ground, in order to establish what borehole drilling equipment is needed.

Once the type of equipment is established, our team of well-drillers will construct the borehole and case it in steel.

In some cases, water boreholes are utilised as drinking water sources, which means our team will undergo testing in order to establish the safety standard of the water.

What is Soakaway Borehole Drilling?

This process is typically utilised when a traditional soakaway method is not suitable. This is determined by geological properties, including the conditions of the site and whether the installation of traditional drainage is too expensive.

Our team atPumpnMech Borehole Drilling advise a deep bore soakaway, which involves soakaway borehole drilling, a similar process to water borehole drilling.

The process of a soakaway borehole drilling involves a series of steps including health and safety, design, drilling, installation and testing. Costs vary depending on different preferences, as we offer a tailored service to every unique client.

What is Geothermal Borehole Drilling?

Here at PumpnMech Borehole Drilling, we provide a variety of ground source heat services, including geothermal borehole drilling for both domestic and commercial clients.

Geothermal borehole drilling is seen as a revolutionary process, as it not only produced great sources of energy utilised for electricity, it can also cut electricity costs in the long run.

We provide borehole drilling installation packages alongside our accredited partners for MCS GSHP, who work with us to deliver the best possible service to all our clients.

Before completing the construction of the borehole, which involves grouting, we always ensure a pressure test is performed and a certificate of this test is issued to our client.

We also offer additional service packages alongside the geothermal borehole drilling, including geothermal pipework, surveys, as well as more complex geothermal services.

We also offer additional services such as borehole monitoring and site investigation, as well as construction and pipe services, which are always conducted on time and within the specified budget.

Everything You Need to Know About Water Borehole Drilling with PumpnMech Borehole Drilling

Water borehole drilling is becoming an increasingly popular option amongst site managers and savvy property owners. It may not be something that you have considered before. However, if you need access to a fresh and reliable supply of water, it could be the ideal solution for you.


In the following blog, we answer your frequently asked questions about water borehole drilling, shedding a little light on this well-drilling service and how we can be of help here at PumpnMech Borehole Drilling.


What is water borehole drilling?

Water borehole drilling (or water well drilling), essentially, involves drilling a hole into the ground to access the water that lies beneath. Once the hole has been drilled, it is cased with steel and a borehole pumping system is typically added to collect the natural water and pump it to the surface.

There are two types of borehole drilling service available, including commercial and domestic, and they are most commonly used in areas with restricted access or poor ground conditions – where it is difficult, or even impossible, to dig the ground with a wheeled drilling rig.

How does water borehole drilling work?

The process of water borehole drilling can be broken down into four steps.

Step 1a hydrogeologist will first need to visit the intended borehole site and assess its geophysical properties. They will identify where the water is located and how it can be reached.

Step 2the water borehole will then be drilled in line with the hydrogeologist’s recommendations, and subsequently cased with steel, stainless steel, PVC or a combination of all of them.

Step 3a test pump will then be installed, and the borehole will be tested on a range of variables. This will determine the impact of certain controlled changes on the overall borehole water level.

Step 4finally, an appropriate pumping and piping system will be installed into the borehole.


How much space is needed for a water borehole?


Water boreholes can be installed in both rural and urban settings and, quite often, they don’t take up as much space as you might think. For example, domestic boreholes will usually fit on a small driveway and they are typically designed to be 110-150mm in diameter.

Commercial boreholes are slightly bigger, measuring 250mm to 450mm in diameter; however, they are quite as deep (>100m) and they still require a minimal amount of space. The borehole will also be fitted with a discreet manhole cover, thus making it safe to walk and drive over.


What equipment is used for water borehole drilling?

Dependent on the condition of your ground soil and the depth of water, a number of different drill types can be used in the well-drilling process. For example, an auger drill is often used to dig shallow wells in soft soil, whereas an air core drill will be employed to dig deep holes in poor soil conditions.

In addition to the drill rig, other specialist equipment is required to drill down and extract the excess soil – including hydraulic winches, mud pumps, and air compressors, to name just a few.


What are the advantages of a water borehole?

Water boreholes are a fantastic alternative to using mains water, especially if you use large volumes of water and experience a poor quality, unreliable supply. It will give you access to safe, clean water, with a consistent level of pressure, and it will save you a significant amount of money over time.

Water Boreholes and Water Filtration Systems

After drilling of the borehole and testing for the amount of water produced from the well a suitable borehole pump is then permanently installed and a water sample(s) taken to be analysed for chemical and bacterial properties at registered laboratory.


On return of the water results, along with the flow rates of the installed pump, Clients requirements and the water production rate for the borehole we will then determine the type of water filtration system that is required to produce potable drinking water to comply with the Private Water Supply Regulations.

Basic filtration will be a Sediment filter and UV light for removal of any bacterial infection, this should be installed as a minimum requirement to protect small children and elder persons from stomach upsets caused by naturally occurring bacteria’s found in all waters.

More complex systems may require water filtration for the removal of iron and manganese, ammonia, hydrogen sulphide, hardness, turbidity and bacteria along with other chemicals or even softners and reverse osmosis to remove high salts.

Once fitted a further water test will be undertaken to ensure the water filtration system is performing correctly, or if it needs tweaking, to improve the water quality before a final test will be taken by the local Environmental Health officer if the water is being used for a public water source, such as hotels, fitness centres, etc.

Water used for agricultural or industrial process will not generally require any specific filtration requirements but may require specialised installations such as Carbon Filters or Chlorine Removal Filters for specific processes which can also be sized and installed.
