A borehole used as a well is completed by installing a vertical pipe and well screen to keep the borehole from caving inside . This also helps prevent surface contaminants from entering the borehole and protects any installed pump from drawing in sediment and sand. When it is completed, the borehole is then more commonly known as a well: whether it is a oil well, water well, or natural gas extraction well.
A well or borehole is a means of gaining access to ground water. The importance of ground water can be easily over looked, it is a hidden asset, and yet for many communities it can be their only means of supply. Ground water comes from rain that infiltrates the ground mainly during the winter months. Ground water emerges from aquifers and can be pumped from wells or boreholes.
We drill water boreholes to feed your animals or livestock, irrigate your garden or even to fill a pond. It can even be there just to give you pure drinking water. Our water boreholes are practically invisible, after drilling the only thing visible is a manhole cover on the ground surface.
West Country Boreholes will come out to the site and help with full advice.
