Borehole Facts

Borehole facts: here is a list of some interesting and practical borehole facts:

  • How many deep is a borehole?
    The average borehole is 60 to 80 meters deep. How deep can you drill? Our company can drill to a maximum of 150 meters. Drilling a borehole for household use will usually range from about 100 feet to 500 feet deep, but when drilling a new borehole for your home or business, the depth of the well depends on the geology and underground water levels of the area.
  • What is the purpose of borehole?
    Boreholes are made for a variety of purposes including the investigation and sampling of the geological succession for construction, water abstraction, or mineral extraction purposes, and monitoring of groundwater behavior and composition.
  • How long does a borehole last?
    A borehole is an asset that should last 50-80 years, with very low maintenance costs in the first 10-15 years. But for this to happen, you need to make the right decisions at the start of the process and invest wisely for long-term returns.
  • Can you drink borehole water?
    Usually borehole water is perfectly safe to drink. … All spring and the majority bottled water come from the ground, even though both spring and bottled water resources pump water from boreholes.
  • Can borehole water run out?
    Each borehole will have its own characteristics. Boreholes that are only metres apart can have completely different water levels and delivery capabilities. But, if you and your neighbour are pumping from the same aquifer, over pumping your hole could cause their hole to dry up.
  • Is borehole water hard or soft?
    The hardness of local water supplies depends on the source of waterWater in streams flowing over volcanic (igneous) rocks will be soft, while water from boreholes drilled into porous rock is normally very hard.
