  • I purchased a new RO water purifier system. Bore water TDS level is 650 PPM, after RO purification water TDS level is 70 PPM and reject water TDS level is 180 PPM. My doubt is that the TDS level of reject water is less than the borewell water - is it right or wrong?

  • Sir, we live in an apartment where the recycled water and the fresh water is stored side by side. There is a wall that divides these 2 tanks. Is it safe to continue this method of storage? Is there any regulation or case law to restrict this practice?

  • Our borewell depth is 1000 ft. I dropped a water hose upto the level of 990 feet, and used a 5HP high pressure compressor to pump the water out. Since only 10 feet is remaining to touch the bottom, is there a possibility of silt / mud gathering in jet pipe and blocking it? To avoid this situation ho...

I am from Delhi and am doing a research project on climate change in Delhi. So I need some information about your met data. My project is based on your meta data. If the meta data is not genuine then my whole research project is waste. So please let me know which weather station you use, is it from IMD or not.

This is Vinay here recently have constructed my home near Bannerghatta Road in Bangalore, where in have drilled a borewell to 850 feet. The water force was so much that I couldn't drill further. Once I started using the water, I noticed it changes to brown colour and smells bad i.e. once I start the motor, the water colour looks pure but if I store that water in any vessels after 30 minutes water colours turns to brown colour which we can't use for any purpose. Request for advice if I need to take any actions from my end since have inserted completely one length pipe.

We used to have normal well its used to have salt water , and in summer water level will be very less, recently based on bore well drilling persons suggestion we have take a bore with 200ft depth in old well it self. We r getting good water from it. But around the casing also water is there in well. After reading questions and answers I am worried that this kind of arrangement will polute ground water. Any problems will come for borewells near to my bore well? Because our bore well is the depeset one in our village. Kindly advice what we have to do for not contaminating ground water .

We have 12+ acres of arecanut plantation land with very good (excessive) spring water source. There are 3 spots where spring is erupting the water all around the year. As its getting wasted, I wanted to make use of it, we need very minimal water for the agriculture and rest is wasted... I wanted to know what are the regulations to setup a plant, I just went through the list in the website, still not very clear where to approach for each of them. Can I take some consultancy services to assess the feasibility from technical and legal point of views ?
