Borehole Casings in Zimbabwe

Boreholes generally fail due to problems associated with conventional materials like corrosion and encrustation. 

Due to corrosion, the strainer screens get damaged and the sand particles come out along with the water. Due to encrustation, pipe diameter, as well as the effective area of the screen, reduces and hence boreholes become unserviceable within a few years. These problems associated with conventional materials are totally eliminated in our casing pipes made from specially developed PVC compounds.

Borehole Experts Zimbabwe uses borehole casing in the size range of 140mm up to 180mm and these offer superior performance at a lower cost. This has become the prime choice of our customers. Borehole Experts Zimbabwe offers a complete range of uPVC pipes for the borehole sector which includes both socketed and threaded plain and screen pipes.

USERS: Very encouraging results have made Borehole Experts Zimbabwe uPVC-casing pipes well accepted by civil engineers, drilling contractors and government/semi-government departments. They are ideal for domestic boreholes, irrigation boreholes, industrial boreholes, public boreholes, mining boreholes, etc.


The advantages of Borehole Experts Zimbabwe uPVC water boreholes casing are as given below.

1. Excellent Corrosion Resistance: Unlike steel pipes, uPVC is totally immune to corrosion and offer good resistance to aggressive elements in the soil and normal chemical reaction, which could cause encrustation of Borehole Screens.

2. Light in Weight: These pipes are light in weight and hence transportation and installation become much easier. This is a major advantage, particularly in remote rural areas where road commutations are not satisfactory and borehole casing and construction is a one-time exercise.

3. Quick and Convenient Installation: These pipes are equipped with good quality threaded joint, thus Borehole Experts Zimbabwe casing pipes and screen pipes are easily assembled and installed where drilling is done by hand with a lightweight drilling rig or even with large capacity drilling machines.

4. Excellent Stiffness: These pipes have excellent stiffness and meet all the mechanical properties as per ISO 4422 specifications. These pipes have excellent hydrostatic collapse pressure i.e. capable of withstanding the hydraulic pressure they would be subjected to during borehole casing and construction.

5. Non-toxic: The material of the pipe is non-toxic and hence does not impart any taste, odour or colour. It does not release any harmful substances to water from the borehole, which could pose a health problem. It is free from bacteria and hence absolutely safe for carrying drinking water.

6. Non-conductive: uPVC is a non-conductor of electricity, which eliminates any electrochemical reaction with groundwater, which could cause the encrustation of screens.

7. Long Lasting: Being free from rusting, weathering and chemical reaction and due to excellent mechanical properties, SPIL casing pipes last for a lifetime.

Economical: When all the advantages listed above are taken into consideration, it would be seen that in most cases, Borehole Experts Zimbabwe casing pipes and screens provide the best cost-benefit ratio when compared to other materials or even alternative uPVC casing pipes available in the market.

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.
