Currently using large volume water and facing hefty chargers from your main supplier? A borehole water supply from Teckna Group may be just the solution you are looking for.
Do you have poor quality water or an unreliable water source? A borehole water system can help you with that too, if you implement it with Teckna Group! Water boreholes are a guaranteed way of delivering clean water to your property, and can even be sustained in drought conditions, giving you peace of mind that clean water will be able to reach your property. Water boreholes allow you to source natural water without the contamination of chemicals making it safe and immediately ready to use.
If a residential or commercial water borehole sounds like a service you would be interested in, we recommend that you first obtain a water borehole prognosis. This is required as it determines the depth that water is expected to be reached at, as well as identifying the drilling conditions making sure it is safe to install.
As with all of our water borehole drilling services, we offer national coverage to various depth and project sizes as we try to accommodate as many borehole drilling jobs as possible. We work to all UK guidelines for water borehole installation to ensure that we abstract water as safely as possible.
What is a Water Borehole?
Groundwater is an integral part of the water cycle, as water travels through the ground due to its gravity. It passes through the varying layers of gravel, soil and rock until it reaches the depth that is filled with water. The top of the saturation zone is considered to be the “water table” which could lie close to the earth’s surface or be situated hundreds of metres below.
Under natural circumstances, water can be brought to the earth’s surface via springs, as well as being discharged into streams and rivers. Teckna Group use boreholes to extract this valuable water, which requires sophisticated technology, expert knowledge and intricate design to function properly, all what we have in abundance! The importance of a quality designed borehole is often overlooked and many of its failures come down to its construction.
On completion of your water borehole, a suitable sized high-quality water borehole pump will be installed. Options that we offer include Grundfos, Lowara, ZDS or Caprari with flexible PE, Sure-Loc or steel riser mains. The finished water borehole head works can be installed at ground level in a sealed chamber, or sited on a concrete plinth above ground with a protective GPR chamber or similar product.
All water boreholes should be suitably tested for the amount of water and draw down available. This is usually a minimum of three hours for domestic projects but can last for days if this is a commercial project, with the drawdown, step and recovery tests as a minimum.
On completion of the water well drilling, we will have the water tested at one of our UKAS Laboratories around to country to make sure it is fit for use. UKAS is the only government associated body authorised to assess to a recognised international standard. This ensures that any water sample tested from a water borehole is done to the same standards on calibrated equipment to give the same impartial testing result anywhere in the country.
