I have 620 feet deep borewells which contains 1.5 inch water and 7.5 HP motor with 12 stages as well as outer pipeline is 2.5 inch pipe. Please let me know if 1.5 inch water in borewell is there which size pipeline should I choose?

My second question is: The 7.5 HP pump stops every 3 minutes after pumping for 2 minutes. These 2 minutes water comes full in 2.5 inches pipe, later it gives break of 3 minutes and then starts pumping for 2 minutes. Kindly advice me on a right choice of over bend size of pipeline.

Hi,

While drilling borewell the 20 feet long PVC pipe has been broken. The team told that not able to remove this pipe so only do drill again on the pipe inside and destroy it. And they did it. They told that all the pieces of plastics were removed out while giving high pressure. Is it possible to remove out all the pieces of PVC pipe and clean the borewell through the air pressure? Please advise.

How can India change the game on groundwater management to deal with its overexploited aquifers?

After independence, India was largely food insecure but post Green Revolution around the 1970s, foodgrain production increased manifold consequently reducing food insecurity and poverty in the country, in spite of rapid population growth. Its ability to achieve targeted results was largely dependent on the explosion of groundwater abstraction mechanisms like tubewells.
