Is borehole drilling bad for the environment?

Borehole drilling can be done in an environmentally responsible manner. At Ingham’s Drilling, we take care to avoid using casings that could cause harmful chemicals to leach into the soil and seek to work closely with our environment to minimise our impact.

Does Bore water run out?

As a rule of thumb, a properly constructed water borehole should deliver water for at least eight and ten years. Top-quality installation, along with good care and diligent maintenance is key to the longevity of a borehole.

How do you maintain a borehole?

It’s essential to keep any harmful chemicals – solvents, paints. pesticides and the like – well away from your borehole. Keep a regular check on any covers and caps and respond quickly if the integrity of these appears compromised. Take great care when working near a borehole, to ensure no ingress of contaminants.
