Word of Mouth

We strongly believe you should ask for references – and call them – before you engage a drilling company. Borehole drilling is an expensive, messy, muddy and disruptive process – all the more reason to trust the company you choose to do the job. We’re proud to share a handful of recent testimonials from our happy customers. Aquacore Boreholes is dedicated to exceptional customer care, and will always go above and beyond to make sure you’re satisfied with our products and service. If you’ve had experience with us and have feedback, please get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.

"Having just worked with Aquacore at our home in Durbanville I have to say that every single aspect of every single testimonial on the Aquacore site could not be truer of what we have experienced. Such a large outlay cannot be compromised for poor quality & I have to say that we would certainly not hesitate to recommend Tammy & his team of Aquacore. Such a pleasure to deal with reliability & honesty in 2019!"

Vic Scanlon-Hall, Durbanville

“Aquacore Boreholes (Pty) Ltd provided me with a quotation for installation of a borehole at my premises in Camps Bay. The driveway has quite an incline and is generally difficult to drill into. After comparing quotes from various companies, their quote was most competitive. Throughout the entire process, their business was most professional. They provided me with good advice, which proved their experience. Delivery was on time and the project was completed in exactly two weeks, as they had said it would. All work, including the drilling, plumbing and electrical installations, was done neatly.
Their professional advice, great workmanship and excellent customer service are highly valued. I can honestly recommend Aquacore Boreholes (Pty) Ltd as a preferred service provider.”

Roland Liebentritt, Camps Bay

“In February 2018 I commissioned Aquacore to install a borehole at my home in Bishopscourt Village. The entire experience was flawless. Tammy was a delight to deal with – complete honesty about every aspect of the process, clarity on what to expect and flexibility on the unknown aspects, which it seems are many in the drilling game. Tammy’s pricing was competitive but not the cheapest. I simply did not trust some of the less expensive suppliers who quoted and could not bring myself to work with them. The drilling process went exactly as planned. The drilling crew were off site within 72 hours, the pump, covers and taps were fully functional and my 5 000-litre tank was full within a week. We had struck water a few metres short of what Tammy estimated and, as agreed, I received a discount on the drilling costs and the savings on material that resulted from that.

Since February I have recommended Aquacore to friends looking for boreholes. One of those was a very deep, very complex site in Bantry Bay, which was a lot more expensive than mine. But my friend was just as pleased with his result as I was with mine. Based on this, I have no hesitation in recommending Aquacore and Tammy and his team for any borehole and related projects that he is happy to consider. Honesty and integrity are rarely found in conjunction with professionalism in the borehole industry and that is what Tammy is best known for.”​

“When Cape Town was reaching drastic drought conditions, we made the decision to put in a borehole. A friend had recently had one put in and recommended Tammy Rutherford of Aquacore. Our request was dealt with almost immediately where most other companies were only quoting for the following year.
The process from start to finish took just over two weeks. This should have been sooner but it was not an easy drill – we live in Upper Newlands, where mountain rock makes it difficult to get to the water. Having drilled for just over a week, Tammy made the decision to abandon the first attempt (others would have just thrown in the towel). He moved the rig less than a metre and started again. This time with success.
At all times he was available and answered my calls (of which there were many) immediately. All members of Tammy’s crew were incredibly hard working and very pleasant chaps. This is a messy business and at the end of the day, we were left with a clean and tidy driveway.
I can highly recommend this company if you were ever to consider putting in a borehole.”

Elizabeth Haldane, Upper Newlands

“If you’re looking for a fly-by-night or an amateur start-up operation, then Tammy Rutherford and Aquacore are not for you. Tammy is a hands-on, passionate and professional service provider who runs a great operation. He and his crew were a pleasure to deal with, and notwithstanding a very difficult site both in terms of access and terrain, they delivered in absolutely every respect.”

Kevin Reid, Camps Bay

“Aquacore provided exceptional customer service whilst operating in extremely difficult conditions, producing a premium product that was methodically thought through and risks meticulously addressed. The team maintained a high level of professionalism and were committed to completing the project within the specified time allocated. Aquacore is highly recommended in an industry fraught with difficulties and where superior judgement and expertise are rare. The company fulfils all the requirements and I strongly recommend them no matter how challenging the situation. Thank you for all the hard work, valuable insight and guidance throughout the project.”
