As the world heats up, the availability of water supplies to meet water needs is coming under pressure. 

Currently, large parts of Zimbabwe face drought conditions, and the scarcity of water means we are limited – sometimes severely – in our ability to water plants, take baths and showers, do the laundry, wash up and maintain swimming pools.

Enter the Borehole, which is becoming a strong trend among property owners all over Zimbabwe, according to Kudakwashe Dande, director at Mutare Boreholes. “There is no scientific way to determine if there’s groundwater under your property, so it’s a bit of a hit and miss. That said, people are more and more willing to invest in the gamble, which costs, on average, between $1200.00USD and $1500.00USD for the drilling, because the benefits of finding groundwater are worth it,” he says.

The success rate of finding water is between 60% and 85% in ideal conditions, which preclude difficult geological terrain and heavy urban infrastructure such as electrical cables and pipelines, which make drilling difficult. The ultimate cost of drilling a borehole depends on the depth of the water-bearing geological formation and the amount of loose or weathered material that needs to be cased off.

Mutare Boreholes offers both a PQWT (Siting with Machine) or Divining (Hydrogeologist using various geophysical methods to survey the subsurface geology to establish where best to drill) for a fee of between $70.00USD to $150.00USD if the customer has accepted their quote.

“We have had a success rate of 95% over the past 10 years, although no one can see under the ground, therefore no-one will ever be able to guarantee the amount of water, the water quality or the depth at which the water will be found,” says Kudakwashe Dande, owner of the business.

The average drilling cost is around $35.00USD a metre. Once drilling is done and groundwater has been found, there is another outlay for Installing a Submersible Pump – about $950.00USD to $2000USD – and then about $100.00USD for the laboratory water tests.

Water Systems advises that before you get a quote, find out from neighbours what it cost to install their boreholes so that you can get a sense of how much it could cost you.

“The Cost or Price of Drilling and Casing you need to install a borehole depends on the area. We have first-hand knowledge of all areas in Harare, Zimbabwe, so we are able to give customers a fairly accurate quote for a borehole; generally, a homeowner is looking at 60 to 80 metres at $35.00USD per metre,” says Kudakwashe Dande. Due to Mutare Boreholes’ competitive rates and professional service they have drilled well over 500 boreholes in the Manicaland Area, and have also drilled boreholes Mutare, Mutasa, Nyanga, Makoni, Chimanimani, Buhera and Chipinge.

Drilling is a disruption but only for a short period of time, says Kudakwashe Dande. “We use high-pressure air compressors for drilling so you can expect some noise whilst operating, and mud and water coming from the borehole. We don’t use municipal water in the process. When drilling in estates, we usually have landscapers working very closely with us to rehabilitate the area once the borehole is installed, or we can give you reliable recommendations,” adds Kudakwashe Dande.

Borehole Companies don’t test the quality of the water found but will recommend that you take a test sample to a laboratory close to you. You will get the results within about three days.

Water Systems advises that when getting quotes, ask for each line item or service to be itemised so that you can easily compare costs with another company’s quote. And make sure you understand all the items listed on the quote.

Five Facts About Borehole Drilling That You Need To Take Note Of:
1. Know Your Borehole Casings:The Preferred Borehole Casing In Zimbabwe Is Class 9 and 10 (Pressure Classes.)This is because Class 9 and Class 10 Casings are more collapse resistant. The strength of a Casing is often described as collapse resistance.

2. Borehole Drilling Depth: The exact depth, of where the water is located, cannot be established by the drilling contractor nor the Water Surveyor (Borehole Siter).

3. The Is No 100% Guarantee On Water: It is important to note that it is never a 100% guarantee that any hole will yield water, the amount and water quality can also not be guaranteed by the drilling contractor and water surveyor.

4. Borehole Siting or Water Surveying Is Important: Making use of a hydrologist or traditional water diviner will increase your chances of having a successful borehole that will yield a sufficient amount of water.
