Borehole Design

At waterdriller we study local geology to design the best most productive borehole for your site.

A typical waterwell borehole driller by waterdriller will operate as shown below. Water borehole depths in the UK mostly range between 10m and 200m.

Example borehole

  1. Discharge Pipe From Wellhead
  2. Concrete Slab For The Well House Foundations 
  3. Pump Chamber Casing
  4. Pumping Water Level In The Borehole
  5. Grout Sealing The Annulus Around The Pump Chamber Casing
  6. Electric Submersible Pump
  7. Water Inflow To The Pump Intake
  8. PVC Well Screen
  9. Gravel Filter Pack Filling The Annulus Around The Well Screen
  10. Groundwater is Drawn Through The Screen Slots And Flows To The Pump Intake
  11. Groundwater Flows Through The Sand And Gravel Aquifer To The Well Screen
