Borehole cleaning

We often carry out extensive remedial works including the cleaning of boreholes. This often extends the life of a source, improves productivity and water quality. We only use a environmentally approved bio-degradable cleaner. Think of it as an MOT. Remediation options depend on a number of factors including:

  • The physical location of the existing borehole and its surrounding infrastructure
  • Its age and the time since it was last used
  • Its diameter and depth
  • The condition of the existing lining tubes
  • The reason for the  decline in yield
  • An increase in water requirements from the end user
  • The reason for any changes in water quality
  • The type of obstruction – either breached or foreign objects dropped into borehole
