What’s Involved In Borehole Maintenance?
Above Ground Borehole Inspection
When our expert borehole technicians perform an annual maintenance inspection we start above ground and check:
Borehole Cap – Condition of the cap and seals indicates whether any contaminants may have entered through the borehole opening.
Water Odour – Any unusual odours or smells coming from the borehole indicates potential water supply contamination issues.
Electrical Wiring – A visual check determines whether the caps are secure and the wires have no frays.
Casing – Checking the casing to verify there is no visible damage or corrosion.
Concrete Pad – Certain properties and borehole types require a concrete pad surrounding the borehole casing to prevent sinking and seepage.
Borehole Equipment Inspection
Our expert water borehole technicians then inspect every part of your borehole system.
Water Pipe & Wiring – Pulling the drop pipe allows us to ensure the pipe has no corrosion or damage, the couplings are tight, and the wiring has no frays.
Water Pump – Testing the water pump motor gives an idea of how much longer the pump will last.
Electrical Control Box – Verify connections are in place and no wires have been frayed or cut.
Pressure Tanks & Gauges – Examine functionality of pressure tank and the accuracy of pressure gauges.
Water Flow Testing
We then perform flow testing on your borehole:
Water Flow Testing – Flow testing ensures the borehole is able to meet your requirements and is most common during new borehole installations, real estate sales inspections, or when new additions to a home require more water. For example, jacuzzis, irrigation systems would all place a higher demand on your borehole.
Water Quality Testing
Whether your water borehole is for commercial or residential use, we strongly advise water quality testing once a year. This service is optional & is offered to you during our maintenance check.
