We provide the services of a professional water surveyor before drilling a borehole.
Our Experience has shown that one has a better chance of striking blue when doing a survey than if it’s left to chance. When rehabilitating a borehole, it is important to conduct a proper assessment to determine the viability of your borehole. Over the years many old boreholes have collapsed and are no longer viable for use. One can risk losing all your equipment if you install the pump before doing a proper assessment of the borehole. With special equipment and a camera, we can assess the condition of your borehole and advise.
We also do a yield test to determine the quantity of water in your borehole. From this information, we can make the proper pump selection for your borehole. The incorrect pump size can damage the borehole and render it unviable. Using the correct equipment in your borehole system will ensure the longevity of your water supply.
Safe drinkable water is key and to that end, we provide a full report on your water quality with comprehensive recommendations.
We at Drill Direct chose to use the Afridev Pump which is a lever action hand pump, installed in a borehole and designed for deep well pumping. It is a heavy-duty pump designed to serve communities of up to 300 people and is designed around the principles of Village Level Operation and Maintenance (VLOM) and some of its unique features lend themselves to these principles such as the hook & eye connecting rods and uPVC riser mains. The simplicity of the design also means that only a few basic tools are needed for the installation and maintenance of the pump. The pump can be easily maintained on a community level.
Due to the declining infrastructure in our water treatment plants, clean drinking water is becoming difficult to guarantee. A water filtration system, which we provide will give you the peace of mind you need for you and your family. Filtration systems disinfect and remove contaminants from your water supply.
