COMMON BOREHOLE PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS.

BY ENGR. VALENTINE O.

In the area of borehole construction, it is very wrong and wasteful for prospective clients to engage the services of quacks in a professional field like borehole construction. Most people engage plumbers who in one occasion or the other seen where borehole is being drilled, and thereafter claims to be borehole drillers which in turn creates problem as a result of failure in service delivery. There are a lot of conditions and factors that contributes to borehole failures, collapses and drawdown which only a professional hand can ascertain and handle. Even in the professional field, there are those whose calling, crafts, or skills are more unique than others, and that significantly is the reason for diverse sort of outcomes and results amongst contemporaries or competitors in the same field.
SKYBOUND as a Business is a unique company with problem-solving capacity and mantle to solve all borehole related issues ranging from water colour, dirt, low yield issue, deep seated overburden issue, drawdowns, compression, collapse, etc. It is our policy to ensure that proper geophysical survey is conducted at feasible and anomalous points, follows with intensive and extensive assessment of data analysis to ascertain the fractured basement, lithological layers in light of the geological setting in the area before the commencement of drilling.
CASING: To ensure that crucial aquifers are not missed, we do detailed geologic logging during and after drilling the borehole, as well as ensuring that casing pipes are discretely screened to achieve maximum yield. The borehole annulus is also one of the critical areas we pay undivided attention to, thus ensuring that the borehole is sand free.


Borehole design is extremely important; both for ensuring the sustainability of groundwater and also to make sure the installation creates a cost effective method of obtaining water for the end user.

Sadly, borehole design and construction is one of the most overlooked aspects within the industry and not enough time, care or attention is put into this stage of the process and it is actually the most vital point.

Boreholes are drilled to be fully functioning for a very long time – often longer than our own lifetimes. That often means the lowest up front cost is not always the most cost effective route, particularly if construction quality is overlooked in a bid to save money.

Cheap drilling or poor construction can lead to an inadequate supply, premature failure of the borehole or contamination of a controlled water. This can create additional expense, that may result in the borehole being more expensive than it should have been in the first place, that could otherwise have been avoided.

In some cases badly designed boreholes have to be abandoned all together, the end user will then have to spend even more money rectifying the situation e.g.: by getting a properly constructed borehole drilled to provide a water supply or decommissioning the redundant supply. We are frequently contacted by people who have had a borehole constructed by others which after discussion is pinned down to the constructional technique used and not enough time or consideration being taken during the design stage.

Key Steps of a Successful Borehole Installation

Siting – includes desk study, field reconnaissance, and surveys to asses the following: sufficient yield for the intended purpose, appropriate water quality for the intended purpose, avoidance of potential sources of contamination, proximity to the point of use, accessibility for construction / drilling team, need for an abstraction licence and avoiding other groundwater sources.
Choosing construction methods – Proper specification of well depths, correct drilling rig specification. The drilling technology used needs to match the borehole design
Design & Construction – Ensuring the well is fit for purpose e.g. yield, diameter, depth, casing and screen, gravel pack/formation, appropriate well construction / development, pumping test and water quality analysis.

Water Treatment – In some cases groundwater may require treatment to bring it up to the required standard for its intended use. Skybound carry out full water analysis and testing and then install a water treatment system to remove the offending substances.

I received this survey last month.
Can I hear your professional opinion.....

Well, the diagram represents the soil formation and profile of the vertical electrical sound point.
If you look at the data on the diagram, you will observe the values as stated above, 1346.86^m, 663.81^m, 145.54^m, then 111.62^m
1346.86 is high and has no water potential at all,
In 666.81, the value reduced showing the closeness to fractured area.
Then data 145.54 shows the water potentiality of the area.
Note: shale is a type of soil that has no water potential meaning that terminating the borehole at a shale formation will absolutely yield no positive result.
Therefore, based on the established data, it is advisable to drill the borehole and terminate at 60m depth unless the formation proved otherwise.

The person who did this survey says that water is difficult to get but that we'll need a wider bore at even extra cost (between 6 to 8 inches) to give me a 50% chance.... I'm perplexed.

Like I said earlier, shale formation is a very difficult formation in borehole drilling and as a matter of fact has no water potential. However, the information on the survey report show water potential between 40-60m depth. The surveyor therefore would've spread to at least 200meters to know if there are possibilities of having another fractured basement underneath.
Nevertheless, using 6-8inches diameter casing pipes won't do much if there are no sustainable fractures in the borehole.

Where is that town located?

Imo state, Ihitenansa is the name of the town.
Thank you very much.

If you are funded to drill that borehole, we can do it for you and ensure you get water running in your house. There are ways to handle such formations
