At Rand Water Boring, we believe that providing choices to our customers is a vital part in ensuring 100% customer satisfaction. Below you will find the different types of borehole pumps, as well as a step-by-step process outlining exactly how we install our pumps on your property.
These pumps have to be fully submersed in the water in order to draw in the water and pump it to a particular location. A submersible pump is typically used where there is ample water to cover it, and this type is often used for groundwater supply, drainage, domestic water supply, and pumping towards a filter.
They are not often used in boreholes, because boreholes tend to be long and narrow. However, where there are underground water resources that provide easy access for a submersible pump, they can be used very effectively.
The natural shape of a borehole is long and narrow. A drill is used to penetrate deep into the soil and to locate a water source. Then a pump that fits the size of the borehole must be used to pump out the water. Often, a test pump is installed first in order to determine the yield and the amount of power needed for the pump, and only after that can the appropriate, and permanent, borehole water pumps be installed. Borehole water pumps are relatively easy to maintain and quite cheap to run, and a reliable pump can provide you with many years of hassle-free water!
