I am a resident of Andhra Pradesh State. Recently we dug a borewell, from which we started getting water at 146 feet. They continued up to 542 feet and were unable to dig further because the water pressure was too high.

I work in a solar based company in Bangalore. I need specifications on the type of supply either single or three phase, HP of motor and any other useful information.

I have a bore well which is 730 feet deep and since there is lot of slush, I get it cleaned once in two years. I have two 20 feet metal casing pipes installed. This time the lorry person while removing the rod, some how pulled the bottom casing pipe and it crumbled and got stuck at 18 feet. The lorry person said that he could do anything, and he wouldn't even be able to re-bore through the metal. How can I get this casing removed and install a new one? I'm with out water for almost 3 days.

Our apartment in Bangalore has 80 flats with STP made in the basement. The noise and vibration are unbearable for some of the ground floor flats even after putting anti vibration mounts under blower. The vibration is so high that it can easily felt on many walls and columns of the building. Our maintenance guys tell us that nothing can be done as the sound is coming because the system is placed in basement resulting in echo. However they don't have any specific answer for vibration. Kindly suggest a suitable solution to get rid of the issue.

Our area is sandy with water table 3 metres from ground. The height of our building overhead tank is 50 feet from ground level. The existing borewell is 45 feet deep with 4" dia pvc casing. Of late the yield is very low. The rock in our area is 70 feet depth. Can we have a 1 foot dia bore well upto the rock depth with 1"x!" suction jet pump. Can this improve yield? Fill the tank faster? Our doubt is 4" dia borewell is not able to improve the yield. Moreover the slots int casing pipes are choked as the bore well is quite old and perhaps they had used nylon net around the casing pipe.
