You Want A Water Borehole, Now What? – PumpnMech Water Solutions

For some, the decision to invest in a domestic water borehole is a simple one; others are daunted by the unfamiliar process.

In an effort to help you overcome the element of unfamiliarity, and thereby help our country save water by making it easier for you to come to a decision to implement your own domestic water borehole, PumpnMech Borehole Drilling is proud to help you better understand water borehole drilling.

So what are the steps in drilling a borehole? We’ll explain everything below.

Step 1: Hydro-geologists site the borehole.

The very first thing that needs to be determined is where the water is, and how we’re going to get to it.

That’s why we employ hydro-geologists who make use of a variety of borehole drilling methods to assess the geophysical properties of the underlying area.


These are the guys that help us ensure we’re not drilling into natural hazards or man-made infrastructure (pipelines, cables, phone lines, etc).

Step 2: Drilling and Construction.


Once the hydro-geologists have helped us prep a path for borehole drilling, we follow through and construct the borehole.

It’s not as easy as Moses and the rock, unfortunately, and, contrary to popular belief, an endless supply of water won’t just surge to the surface following the drilling of the borehole; there are still steps to follow and processes to be completed.

Once the borehole has been drilled the necessary unstable lengths of the borehole are steel cased in an effort to reinforce the ‘tube’.

Step 3: Determining the yield of the borehole.

In order to most accurately gauge the yield of a domestic water borehole, an aquifer test is performed.

This involves installing a test pump and pumping borehole water for a fixed set of variables; a given time at a given rate, and then assessing the test’s impact on the water level in the borehole.

The maximum yield is achieved by increasing the abstraction rate, ensuring the optimum drawdown of water in the borehole.

Step 4: Pumping and piping the borehole.


The kind of pumping system and piping installed in your new domestic water borehole will largely depend on the intended use of the borehole water.
