Borehole Maintenance Pretoria

A large part of borehole maintenance Pretoria is to keep any hazardous chemicals, such as paint, solvents, pesticides, fertiliser and herbicides, etc., well clear from the borehole. Check the well cover and well cap periodically to ensure that it is in good repair, and take care in working or mowing around the well. Depth of about 220 m is suggested for boreholes to be drilled in the area. Generally, variation in the depth extent of pollution in the regions of investigation could be as a result of variation in the level of abstraction of water from boreholes in the regions.

As a general rule of thumb for one where regular borehole maintenance Pretoria was performed, a properly installed and sized borehole should last 8-10 years. If you have only just installed a borehole, you’re likely to see years of service from your current equipment. So muddy water is coming from bore well . If depth of casing pipe is not proper then seepage of water from upper layer with mud may percolate in bore well, so with proper inspection diagnose the problem.

Borehole water is rich in naturally occurring minerals and hasn’t been treated or altered with any man-made chemical additives. When you’re drinking water from the municipal supply, the water has inevitably been treated and chlorinated in an effort to render the water “safe for human consumption”. Borehole Water comes from rain and rivers leaks through layers of rock from underground areas. Water layers of rock or clay separate and restrict underground water bodies at different depths, in different areas. These areas are called aquifers. The quality of the water can affect a person’s health both in the short- and long-term. For example, a high magnesium concentration may result in an upset stomach for a few days.

Basically, a salt based water softener works to remove high concentrations of calcium and magnesium from water through a process called “ion exchange.” This process “softens” hard water by substituting the hardness minerals (calcium and magnesium) with sodium chloride (salt).
