We recently had a 4.5 inch diameter boring in our house for domestic use. The technician dug the borewell upto a depth of 230 feet, after which he said boring can not be carried out further.About 1 inch of water supply was found at a depth of 150 feet. The casing i.e the pipe which is provided upto the rocks, is of 77 feet in length and 4.5 inches in diameter. We have to install a 1000 litre tank on the roof top which is 15 feet from the ground level and about 15 meters away from the borewell.

I have installed a 15 HP submersible pump (CRI) in my farm in Southern Tamil Nadu. This pump is installed in a 380 feet borewell that has an average yield of 3000 to 3600 litres per hour. The 15 HP pump was installed on basis of a wrong advice provided by the pump dealer as I was looking at installing rain gun and a rain gun required significant pressure. In hindsight a 5 or a 7.5 HP pump should have served the purpose

I have dug a bore well around 400 feet deep, that is 6" wide, and I also have a 7.5 HP submersible motor. My motor works in 3 phase supply, now i have to put 2 phase to it. Is it possible to run the motor in 2 phase? Will this cause any problems for the motor? If so, are there any solutions?

Solar pumps are cost-effective, environment-friendly and have good potential in places with high water table. Sehgal Foundation, that piloted 14 solar pumps in two districts of Bihar, shows how.

Irrigation system in India is often about big dams and hundreds of kilometres of canals that incur huge capital expenditure. Hence, policies at the central and the state level are mostly tilted in favour of big projects and often neglect micro-level solutions.

I don't have an electricity connection yet. Can any one suggest a good diesel motor which can lift water from 120 feet deep borewell. Any other ideas also invited.

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.

A study from Telangana finds faulty power subsidy policies of the state and the resultant increase in tube wells with electric pumps as reasons for depleting groundwater levels.

According to the data released by the Food and Agricultural Organisation’s AQUASTAT in 2010, at 250 billion m³ per year, India is one of the countries that uses groundwater the most. As high as 80 percent of its water is used for irrigation of which 65 percent is groundwater.
