Borehole Maintenance

A borehole is an asset with a number of benefits, and if done correctly, your borehole will be connected to a natural pool of underground water. 

A borehole gives you the ability to gain control where you become self-reliant to manage your own water usage, whilst reducing your monthly municipal costs.

With a new project, the drilling is normally done within a day or two and is subject to the terrain, actual depth of the borehole, the type of sand as well as the stone found in the area. We provide a full turnkey solution from drilling the borehole, installing the casing & pump (electric or solar), whilst connecting this back to a tank, and/or your property - this all depends on your unique requirements. 

We do not try to fit you into our box, we build the box around your requirements!

We make use of an external water diviner with state of the art technology to determine if there is water on your property.

Borehole Maintenance should be done at least every 5 years, or whenever you run into a problem with your pump, or should you have less than average water usage. Most people neglect maintenance and are an important aspect of your borehole.
