Aquacore Boreholes started out of a desire to become part of the solution to the drought that has plagued Cape Town since 2016. Research suggests that while we can expect this particular drought to end, the Western Cape is likely to experience a progressive reduction in average rainfall for the next 100 years or so.

Drilling a borehole and using the water is not very different from digging an old-style water well. These days we are able to use sophisticated drilling techniques to access groundwater, using electrical pumps to bring the water to a storage tank on the surface and thereafter push it to taps. The tank level and water pressure are automated for convenience.

Groundwater should be tested for quality – it often may be used untreated for gardens and swimming pools, but it can also be treated and filtered as a secondary process to correct the pH or bring it to potable water quality.
