Micson Borehole Services operates a range of drilling rigs suitable for water borehole drilling and refurbishment. Micson Borehole Services offers a wide range of services, but borehole drilling has always been at the heart of what we do. Over the years we have helped both domestic and commercial clients to realise the benefits of private water supplies. In that time we have worked with everyone from public sector organisations to multi-national corporations and even isolated households. And we are proud to say that no matter how big or small the requirement we always maintain the highest standards for customer service.
We Specialize in:
- Borehole Drilling
- Borehole Servicing
- Borehole Cleaning
Borehole Drilling Steps in Kenya:
Step 1 – Hydro-geologists site the borehole
The very first thing that needs to be determined is where the water is, and how we’re going to get to it.
That’s why we employ hydro-geologists who make use of a variety of borehole drilling methods to assess the geophysical properties of the underlying area.
These are the guys that help us ensure we’re not drilling into natural hazards or man-made infrastructure (pipelines, cables, phone lines, etc).
Step 2 – Drilling and Construction
Once the hydro-geologists have helped us prep a path for borehole drilling, we follow through and construct the borehole.
It’s not as easy as Moses and the rock, unfortunately, and, contrary to popular belief, an endless supply of water won’t just surge to the surface following the drilling of the borehole; there are still steps to follow and processes to be completed.
Once the borehole has been drilled the necessary unstable lengths of the borehole are steel cased in an effort to reinforce the ‘tube’.
Step 3 – Determining the yield of the borehole
In order to most accurately gauge the yield of a domestic water borehole an aquifer test is performed.
This involves installing a test pump and pumping borehole water for a fixed set of variables; a given time at a given rate, and then assessing the test’s impact on the water level in the borehole.
Maximum yield is achieved by increasing the abstraction rate, ensuring optimum drawdown of water in the borehole.
Step 4 – Pumping and piping the borehole
The kind of pumping system and piping installed in your new domestic water borehole will largely depend on the intended use of the borehole water.
