A borehole is drilled for the extraction of water. The process relies on high-pressure air and a hammer. The high-pressure air makes it possible to drill into hard rock or whatever other strata or formation is presented. Whether you need a borehole for domestic, corporate, industrial or agricultural use, East Lake Drilling can help you.
Water purification is a process by which undesired chemical compounds, organic and inorganic materials, and biological contaminants are removed from water. Water filtration works in one of two ways – physical filtration and chemical filtration. With physical filtration, water is strained, often through a gauze-like membrane, to remove larger particles. With chemical filtration, water is treated with patented smart technology to remove impurities.
Water is pumped into the tank from the water source (the borehole). The tank (JoJo, Roto or the like) accumulates water until it is full. Once full, the float switch will stop the water being pumped from the ground. The purified water in the tank is then distributed to the house (via the filtration system), while the unpurified water is distributed to the garden.
