Frequently asked question (FAQ) help our business respond to the needs of people more quickly and…
• In order for Water For All Ltd to ensure that the person requesting for a hydrogeological survey or borehole drilling is the legal owner or representative of the legal owner of the property where the work is to be done, the following will need to be shared: -
• Kenyan National ID
• Title Deed
• KRA Pin Certificate
• Power of Attorney (in case title deed is in name of a deceased person)
• A hydrogeological report (In case one had already been done)
• The depth of the borehole depends on the hydrogeological survey depth estimates for the borehole. The Borehole Drilling company will usually dig the borehole according to the recommended depth from the hydro geologists however it can be deeper or shallow as per the conditions found.
• Drilling a borehole is a very specialized activity therefore it requires well-equipped machinery, materials, and highly trained personnel to deliver. The cost includes the fuel used, gravel pack, drilling bits, steel rods, casings, and other items that are used in the borehole drilling and are costly. Water For All Ltd will make sure that the price given to our clients is reasonable compared to other service providers?
• The duration depends on many factors including; the distance and accessibility to the site, the geology of the landscape and any complications that might arise on the site. Once all the equipment arre on-site a 250m borehole should take 3 to 4 days, unless complications arise.
• In Kenya there are two types of casings available in borehole drilling, plastic casing and a steel casing. Plastic casing is cheap and is usually used for depths less than 100 meters because it's not as strong. On the other hand, steel is quite expensive, strong and rigid and can go for large depths.
• A well-constructed Borehole can last for generations though some boreholes might require rehabilitation after some years to ensure that they are in good working condition. Water For All Ltd has successfully drilled and rehabilitated many boreholes for commercial and domestic use which are still up and running to date.
• After drilling the borehole and doing test pumping, Water For All Ltd, will take a water sample to the government laboratory for testing. A water analysis report will be generated which indicates whether the water is safe for domestic/industrial consumption.
