Borehole & Drilling
Andre’s Boreholes is one of the leading wellpoint and borehole drillers in the Western Cape.
Since our start in 1992, we have installed thousands of pumps and hundreds of boreholes and wellpoints. Our quality of work and high standard of equipment provide reliable, trouble-free water supplies. Each installation is tailor made to your unique requirements. We offer a complete service, which cover all aspects of wellpoint and borehole designs, drilling, pump and tank installations, irrigation design and installation, sales and repairs of pumps. We also specialise in maintenance of wellpoints and boreholes. Our reputation is built on the high quality of equipment and work.
Dowsing: We have installed hundreds of boreholes without using the method of dowsing, but to put your mind at rest, we will put you in touch with a professional geophysicist on your request. He will charge a fee for his service and provide you with a hydro geological survey.

These are some of the drilling methods that we use:
Rotary Mud Drilling
Rotary Mud Drilling (RMD) is the most commonly used method of Borehole drilling. In direct RMD water or water with additives/mud is pumped down a drill pipe out through ports or jets in the drill bit. The fluid then flows up the space between the hole and drill pipe, known as the annular space. The fluid carries the drill cuttings in suspension to the surface of the borehole. At the surface, the fluid is channelled into settling pits or tanks where most of the cuttings settle out. Clean drill fluid is then picked up from the opposite end of the settling area. The drilling fluid is then re-circulated down the hole, the process is repeated until the drilling is complete.
