Help On Easiest Way To Pump Water To Our New Farm To Sink Borehole There by aliadi2: 8:53am On May 31, 2023
Hello great farmers we are trying to sink borehole on our new farm but getting water there for the people doing the borehole has been alot of issue. The place we want to pump the water is very far from our new farm so we tried to pump the water into a 1800ltrs tank that we place some distance from the borehole before pumping from there to the farm with the submersible pump that the borehole people want to use for us, but the water was only coming out small small.
So we opted for tanker to bring water for us but no tanker so we a pickup that will load about 40pcs 25ltrs keg and use it to bring water for us but the road is too slippery and bad so the drivers is no where to be found now. Please any idea on what we can do we have been on this project for over 2month now and they have only just dug 60ft going 170/190ft, coupled with the fact that there are also stone inside the ground that they also have to break but that is little. Water is the most important thing there.

The distance is upto 600m because we used over 10bundle of 3/4'' hose when trying the method above and each bundle is 50m. Though most of them are rented but we bought 2 bundle

If you already have the water in a tank, you can use a surface pump of like 1hp to get it to the location of the new borehole or get 2" hose and use a mud pump
