How Does The Borehole Water Survey Process Work For Borehole Drilling in Zimbabwe

Using the latest auto-analysis geophysical prospecting instrument technology as well as geological and hydrogeological maps, we can determine with an incredibly high degree of accuracy if there is water to be found on your property. 

Our instruments have been specifically built to scan the underground hydrologic and geologic features of the earth and are extremely accurate.

They use data from magnetic irregularities found in underground water as well as the earth's electromagnetic field to determine if subterranean water is present.

How Does The Borehole Siting or Water Survey Process Work For Borehole Drilling in Zimbabwe
The Instruments do more than just find water, they provide us with accurate additional information of each water fracture’s depth and can show veins during the survey It also shows formation types such as mud, hard rock, river bed and extremely hard rock.

All this info is vital to give you an accurate quote for drilling a borehole that will last for decades to come. Remember the biggest cost by far associated with a borehole is drilling the borehole, not the borehole water survey. It is best to know if you have water before you drill. Detect, Measure, Improve.

What happens when we are done with the borehole water survey?

Once we have conducted the water survey and analysed the data, we will be able to tell you if there is water to be found on your property. If there is water, we can proceed with mapping your property. With the mapping process we determine:
  1. The best borehole drilling point will provide the highest yield.
  2. The best access point to your property which will have the least impact on you and your neighbours.
  3. The correct drilling method or rig to keep the costs as low as possible. The deeper we need to go, the bigger the drilling rig and the higher the costs are. It is important to note that large drilling rigs can weigh up to 15 tonnes. It is therefore essential that the correct determination is made regarding the size and depth of the borehole before quoting you or drilling begins.

Five Facts About Borehole Drilling That You Need To Take Note Of:

1. Know Your Borehole Casings:The Preferred Borehole Casing In Zimbabwe Is Class 9 and 10 (Pressure Classes.)This is because Class 9 and Class 10 Casings are more collapse resistant. The strength of a Casing is often described as collapse resistance.

2. Borehole Drilling Depth: The exact depth, of where the water is located, cannot be established by the drilling contractor nor the Water Surveyor (Borehole Siter).

3. The Is No 100% Guarantee On Water: It is important to note that it is never a 100% guarantee that any hole will yield water, the amount and water quality can also not be guaranteed by the drilling contractor and water surveyor.

4. Borehole Siting or Water Surveying Is Important: Making use of a hydrologist or traditional water diviner will increase your chances of having a successful borehole that will yield a sufficient amount of water.

5. Know The Risks: The risk of the borehole drilling lies with the property owner. The client will still be liable for the drilling costs irrespective of a borehole yielding water or not.
