How would you like to spend your borewell drilling budget? Would you settle for a messy fabrication now and keep wasting money, time and labour later on maintenance, all the time? We hope not. A borewell should be like an investment that, once made, keeps giving dividends without causing regular harassment.
So, let us begin by discussing the casing pipes.
Why does the quality of borewell casing pipe matter?
Casing pipe in borewell is a significant structural component affecting water quality, longevity, and hitchless functionality. The importance of a good casing pipe for a borewell can never be overestimated. A good quality casing pipe and column pipe is indispensable for all the following reasons.
- Preventing a borehole from caving in due to collapse pressure.
- Stopping fine sand particles from entering and clogging a borehole.
- Maintaining water safety by preventing contaminants from seepages.
- Ensuring maintenance-free longevity.
Factors you should remember while choosing borewell casing pipes.
Borewell casing pipes can be made of different materials like mild steel, stainless steel, PVC, uPVC. Before choosing anyone, you should know the essential characteristics that a casing pipe should have to keep your borewell in perfect shape over a long period.
Collapse pressure - It measures the pressure a pipe or tube receives from outside. When the outside pressure increases from a pipe’s rated collapse pressure, the pipe collapses. A borewell casing pipe receives constant pressure from surrounding soil and rock formation. So, it should have a high rated collapse pressure.
Non-conductive to electricity - The nature of soil differs from acidic to alkaline and from dry to wet. Electrically conductive piping materials are always vulnerable to electrochemical reactions. It rodes a pipe’s structural strength and longevity. So, you need to choose chemically non-reactive piping materials like uPVC. Otherwise, you need to have pipes with a protective coating on the outer layer.
Resistant to corrosion, non-toxic - It is easy to understand that non-corrosive, non-toxic casing pipes are always the best choice for your borewell and the water you pump out from it.
Ease of transportation and installation - Ease of installation is one of the most important factors because it can make or break any borewell drilling project. Casing pipes requiring a high level of installation skill can increase unnecessary cost and complexity. Besides, lightweight pipes are easier to transport and offer a lot of cost-saving.
Ease of maintenance - We started this article by talking about the burden of regular maintenance. Any casing pipe for a borewell that requires routine maintenance can be difficult to upkeep. It increases downtime and adds up cost.
