Supplying Water To
Borehole Flush Out + Re-installation of Pump
Depth of Borehole: 52 Meters
Project Inspiration: We originally drilled this borehole in 2014, however it hasn’t been an easy ride for the people of Domboshawa or ourselves. It was an extremely hard area to locate water due to the granite terrain. Once we did, we had a constant problem with silt (fine sand) coming into the hole and blocking the pump. We have pulled it out numerous times, however this time we flushed out the hole completely and re-installed the pump with a filter on the end to prevent the problem. With determination & patience we hope this will solve the problem for good.
