At Kalahari Boreholes we focus primarily on providing solutions to accessing groundwater for household and commercial use. We also provide portable and bulk storage solutions to ensure that water availability remains uninterrupted.

 Our service include

  • Underground Water Survey
  • Borehole Drilling (outsourced)
  • Borehole Capacity Testing
  • Installation of Electrical and Solar pumping equipment
  • Installation of storage tanks and related equipment 

Underground Water Survey

Before the drilling of a borehole can be commissioned, it is vital that a survey is undertaken to find the best location of groundwater. This ensures that a good water source is identified to avoid… The test involves a physical walk of the site and utilizing a specialized device which can read the geological composition of the ground from the surface to 300metres below identifying faults and water sources. The outcome of this survey is a comprehensive 2 dimensional report with GPS reports which can be utilized by a third party to inform the location of water on your property. 

Borehole Capacity Testing

To bring ground water to the surface a pump must be installed in the borehole. The size of this pump must be informed by the yield of the borehole to ensure the optimal pump size is installed. Failure to do this may lead to the borehole running dry prematurely and the pump burning out. On the hand too small a pump may lead to water being delivered to the surface is way below the capacity of the borehole.

A yield test involves a test to see the balance between the maximum amount of water that can be pumped out of the borehole and the amount of water that recharges back from the surrounding ground water source.

Testing of the borehole involves pumping the water to the surface for an hour and determining the yield during this period.

Pumping equipment

We install a full suite of electrical and also solar pumping equipment. Electrical pumps can be single phase or 3phase depending on the preference of the customer.

Solar power can be harnessed in a number of ways, including through solar panels converting sun energy into electricity. This energy can be used to drive a submersible solar pump and deliver water to the surface enabling the customer to save on hefty electricity bills. Solar pump set up requires a good source of sun power. To avoid interruptions during cloudy spells, this can be overcome by setting up a storage facility.

Solar pumping equipment will include the pump, solar and a solar panel. All our installations are done by professional personnel and we ensure a quality ….
