BOREHOLE TESTING

The test pumping of boreholes is an important part of the borehole development. Test pumping aims to promote the efficient use of groundwater. The purpose of test pumping is to determine:-

The Performance Characteristics of Borehole
Hydraulic Parameters of the Aquifer
Safe Yield & Abstraction schedules of Boreholes
Effective Development of the aquifer
Contamination & Pollution of Groundwater The yield of boreholes is tested on comple- tion of the well development prior to the selection of a pumping system.

Our Test Pumps are capable of operating from up to 200 Meter Depths, Pumping Volumes from 0.5 litres per second to a maximum of 30 litres per second.

 

REPAIR AND MAINTENANCE

Hand Pumps remain the most cost effective means of providing safe, portable water to ru- ral communities. It is imperative that a program of Repair and Maintenance of Hand Pumps is properly managed and executed by reputable contractors.

 

WATER RETICULATION

Aquatec Pumps has the skill to construct and maintain water reticulation schemes. These projects aim to provide portable water to entire communities via a network of pipes and tap points.

Reticulation from boreholes is by diesel or electrically driven pumps.
Spring development is also a cost effective and economically viable reticulation develop- ment.
Reticulating from a river or dam is also an alternative but may require water treatment and therefore has a higher running cost. Extraction is either electrical or diesel driven.

In small communities, windmills can meet low demands.
