  • We recently drilled borewell in our car parking area. We created a pit around the borewell and covered it with a slab and cemented its sides. Now it is air-tight packed. My question is, when water is sucked by motor, will vaccum be created and disturb the surrounding soil or damage the motor?

We have drilled borewell upto 575 ft through sensor vehicle and used filter pipe and yet at 300ft it has been collapsed when checked through camera testing. However, at the same site we drilled  upto 73ft and installed 10" pvc pipe and drilled upto 155ft through inwell bed setting and found 3 layers of loose soil and kept covering the borewell.So what should we do now for a successful drilling?

Is there any policy of how the groundwater in urban residential area can be used? Can groundwater from these areas be used for commercial purposes? And how can one get the required licensed for the same?

We drilled borewell in the month of October and we went until 1120 feet but we didn't find any source of water. The drilling person mentioned that water of 0.5" is available. We thought that it is a failure and we constructed our home. After completing the home construction, I used the camera technique and was able to find water at a depth of 300 feet but in the video that was provided I was not able to find any single source. But the camera person and some of the people are suggesting to put the motor.
