Borewell Maintanance


Lot of people ask about 'What maintenance should be carried out after borewell drilling?'

The simple answer is nothing, unless if there is any issue.

Casing Pipe:
Consult with your borewell driller and inquire neighbors who drilled recently, about loose soil. If there is no loose soil during drill / in that area, usually outer casing pipe should be inserted for 20 to 80 feet and main casing pipe till the rock. Otherwise you have to insert till you cover the loss soil depth. This is a precaution step taken while drilling bore well.

And another common question is, Whether rain water harvesting tank can be linked to borewell hole?
Rain water harvesting should not be connected directly to borewell. Because that may lead to piling up the soil in the borewell.
