New Borehole Pretoria

A new borehole Pretoria 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.

Throughout South Africa, water is often found at about 300 feet, but new boreholes for household use usually range from about 100 feet to 500 feet deep. There are some places, however, where a well can be more than 1,000 feet deep. 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.

A well-maintained good as new borehole Pretoria is also a cost-effective, self-sufficient asset. Although initial costs of drilling and equipping may be high, there are long-term financial benefits to groundwater, particularly the fact that borehole water costs significantly less than municipal water. With this in mind, the timeframe for water borehole drilling can vary from project to project, depending on how deep and wide the hole is, and the difficulty of the site’s immediate surroundings. As a guide though, we normally hope to provide you with fresh, natural water within just 2-3 days!

On the whole borehole water is safe to drink; however, it could possibly contain dissolved minerals or contamination. If there are concerns over the waters fitness use we can have the water tested by an accredited laboratory that will give a detailed report of the water. Not only is borehole water better for you from a water-consumption perspective, it is also typically kinder and gentler to skin if you‘re showering and/or bathing in it.
