Be in the Know About Borehole Drilling Prices and Specifications

Everyone will tell you that a borehole drilling is a great investment. What they don’t tell you is all the costs involved. The best way to tackle a project as big as this is to make sure you have all the information possible regarding the costs involved, as well as the specifications coupled with installing a borehole.

Here are some things you need to keep an eye out for before you start drilling.

Project Timeline

Similar to building a house or completing any project, the longer it takes, the more the prices go up. A borehole can take about three to five days to install. To calculate your timeline, you have to start at the beginning.

Contact your local municipality office first to find out if you have permission to drill a borehole in your area. It is better to get permission to make sure you adhere to all the regulations and specifications, before being stuck with a heavy fine.

The prices involved in drilling a borehole in your backyard will mostly depend on the geology of the site. The type of rock that the company has to drill into, the drill method, and the ground conditions adds to the cost of drilling a borehole. It is easier drilling in areas where the ground is loose and soft, but unfortunately this can add to the drill hole possibly caving in during the process. Sometimes steel casing is used to keep the borehole open, which can also add to the price of the project if you don’t adhere to the right specifications.

Size Matters

The costs can vary depending on how deep the borehole needs to be and the amount of casting that needs to be used. The major costs you would incur would be from drilling, yield testing and equipment. It is then up to you to compare prices between different borehole drilling specialists and the costs involved.

When your drilling a borehole, the company charges you per meter of drilling. Yield testing costs thousands and the equipment can add anything between R30 000 to R50 000 to your budget.

Do Research

Before you get a quote, find out from neighbours and co-workers that have been through the process of installing a borehole. You will get a good sense from them of how much the prices are.

Remember the cheapest option is not always the best option. You get what you pay for, and you want your borehole to last. Make sure the drilling company designs, drills and constructs the borehole with all its specifications to give you the best results, even if the prices are a little bit more than you bargained for.

Team Work

It is not only important to get the right equipment for the job, but also to get the right team behind you. Installing a borehole is not something you do every day, so you want the best team to manage the project. It is best to find a company that has years of experience in the drilling industry. Knows the ins and outs of all the specifications necessary to make sure the project runs successfully and does not go over budget.

Ask the borehole drilling company you plan on hiring for a quotation where all the specifications and items are listed, so you can easily compare prices with another company’s quote. Make sure you understand all the items listed on the quote. If anything is unclear, ask them to explain it to you.
