Challenges With Water Bore Drilling - Darr Drilling

Challenges With Water Bore Drilling

Drilling a water borehole has several advantages and helps you have some level of control over your water supply. Aside from the long-term money saving, drilling a water borehole means having your personal water supply, which can be particularly useful if your residential or commercial property requires uninterrupted daily water reserves. However, you are almost certain to encounter some problems with your bore drilling. Fortunately, Darr Drilling’s professionals can guarantee that you extract groundwater without encountering such issues. Regardless, it would help if you learned about some of the challenges with water bore drilling and how Darr Drilling can help.

Uninformed siting 

It would be best to have the technical knowledge to find the right location for water bore drilling, as appropriate siting is crucial. However, many don’t consider this when drilling their boreholes. At Darr Drilling, our expert geologists and engineers will research the area’s geography, water table depth, topography, and site distance from potentially harmful contaminants like garbage dumps, outhouses, and cattle grazing to discover the right location. Also, drilling very close to waste from humans and animals increases contamination risks. It is best to ensure you are drilling on-site with sufficient water. Else, you may rely on other water sources or undertake another drilling project. It is critical to conduct a high-quality siting study to account for all of the elements that may affect a well before drilling, preventing future difficulties.

Construction problems 

Like the well siting, several factors related to the drilling process can affect your water well in the short term. For instance, the well’s depth, location, hand-pump depth, and material quality are a few factors that can cause failure in your bore drilling. It’s worth noting that groundwater levels change throughout the seasons. Communities whose well’s supplied adequate water throughout the rainy months might find it difficult to pump sufficient water once the water table decreases during the dry season. That usually happens when the hole is drilled far too shallow to save money. Poor quality or incorrect building materials might also cause the borehole to fail prematurely. That is why it’s vital to consult the right experts for quality work. Thanks to Darr Drilling’s high degree of technical expertise and knowledge, you are certain to face no difficulties in construction and enjoy a constant water supply all season. 

Poor maintenance 

Manual pumps and water wells, like other mechanical devices, will wear out with usage. Therefore, residential, commercial, rural, and industrial facilities must have regular maintenance and emergency repair service. The most expertly designed and costly hand pumps and boreholes can fail prematurely without regular maintenance and parts replacement. You can count on our competent mechanics to assist you in finding the best parts for cost-effective maintenance and replacement services.
