Everything You Need To Know About Drilling Boreholes - Borehole Drilling In South Africa

Every living thing needs water. There is no way we will be able to survive without water, and while some of the provinces in South Africa have more water than others, there has never been a better time to become more self-sufficient and install a borehole on your property.



But before you do, there are some things you should know about drilling boreholes.

What can I use borehole water for?

Borehole water can be used for irrigation and domestic use. If you've tested your water and decide to make use of a filter, water can also be used to drink and cook with.

Do I have to register my borehole?

If you'll only be using your water source for domestic purposes, there's no need to register it. In case of use for commercial and agricultural purposes, you would have to register your borehole.

How much does a borehole installation cost?

There are many things to consider with regards to the cost of drilling a borehole such as the depth, filtration and pump and the amount of casing used but a rough estimate would be anything from R60 000 to R90 000.

Where will they install my borehole?

It all depends on the size of your property. And in most cases properties in South Africa are enclosed with walls, making it difficult to even get a rig onto the property. A thorough inspection is done by PumpnMech Boreholes before quotation stage to provide you with all the information.

What's the lifespan of a borehole?

If you do regular maintenance, you can expect to get 20-30 years out of the major components of your borehole. 


Is drilling a borehole a good investment?

While there are costs involved in drilling a borehole, once you're up and running you'll have a secure water source and won't have to tap into municipal water ever again. The average borehole can yield up to 20 000 litres of water per day.
