Bore hole feed for Pig farm, Norfolk

Irrigation and Water were asked by a local pig farmer to give advice on an alternate water supply due to high demand and a large water bill.

After an extensive survey was carried out it seemed clear that the drilling of a borehole would be the best and most efficient option.  James and Milton Drilling Ltd were the chosen borehole drillers for this project, and they drilled a very successful borehole to a depth of 21 meters, which yeilded a high volume of water.  A Lowara submersible bore pump was installed along with pressure vessel, switches and gauges.  The redirection of the exsisting water mains was also piped into the new pump house along with the borehole feed allowing for an easy "switch over point" to supply the farm's units with either the new borehole feed or exsisting water mains.  On this particular project directional drilling was also carried out by Genseed Underground Services Limited so our new supply could be connected to the farm's units on the opposite side of a mian road.

From initial contact through to completion of installation of a 100ft borehole for garden and domestic use, couldn't fault the service from Ashley, Derek and Andy the engineer. Now got an excellent scheme for our 1 acre garden and also serves hot and grey water in the house. The first pump was too beefy at 20 gallons/min so down-rated to 8 gallons/min and added a UV clarifier to the buffer tank. A very neat installation. Roll on the hot weather next year!!
