After several failed attempts at retrieving a stuck bore pump from 360 feet in a bore well, our mechanic poured 3kg of washing soap powder into the borewell to ease out the retrieval process as a last option. Finally, we did not succeed in retrieving the pump. During drilling, first water source found at 150 feet and we were stuck after this and were unable to pass from this depth. Our rope, hose and wires were all broken during the retrieval. Now we are lifting water from 150 feet with an air compressor lifting method.

Hi,

We have drilled a bore well 8 months back, which is around 480 ft deep, but we did not install a pump set because of loose soil till 200 ft. To put a casing till 200 ft would have been expensive. This week, we did a video scanning of the bore well and noticed a blockage at 240 ft,  but there is water in the bore well from 55 ft as per the video. We are now confused whether to install pump set til 200 ft or just leave it.

We need suggestion from experts to take decision. Seniors, could you please respond.

Sir,

My neighbour has dug an open well in their property. They found a rock after digging 7 meters deep and they have been blasting near the side of the well three or four times, without our permission. We also tried to stop them. Could you please suggest suitable methods for removing the rock and getting water from the open well? What are the approved rules in this case?

I'm planning to dig a borewell in my hometown (Dindigul, Tamilnadu). Our earlier 2 attempts failed. Since my place is a drought area and nearby borewells are more than 1000ft, I would like to know anyone who can help us to find the correct spot of water source with 100% accuracy. I do not believe in people who use coconuts, neem sticks for finding ground water.

I recently drilled a borewell in my site in Erode, but could not find water source even after going beyond 940 ft, hence stopped the drilling. Before drilling borewell, I got the site verified by water diviner (who brought a machine and found a point to drill. Mr. Natarajan-9842776565). But could not trace water even after crossing 940 ft, though the estimated depth was 650-700 ft. I have wasted my money, nearly 1 lakh!

In the beginning, the borewell water showed a good ph of 8.5, but was greyish color as there was some grey sand getting mixed in it, so we put some pebbles to block the sand from getting in. But now, I am getting a sewage and chemical kind of smell from the water.

I'm really starting to get annoyed, advice is deeply appreciated. My bore well is currently 80 feet, had not used it for 5 years and just got it fixed. We have cleaned the new pump twice, and I have spent around 18K on it. Now the water is kind of whitish with a slight sewage like smell coming from it.
