Water Boreholes and Water Filtration Systems in Zimbabwe

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 a registered laboratory.


In return for 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 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 softeners 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.

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.
