We have a borewell of 1120 ft and from the day we have installed motor excess sand coming out with water. Initally we had put 20 Hp pump and motor at 300 ft, delivery 3 inch but the pump got damaged in 7 days due to sand. Then we put new pump of 20 hp and that also got damaged after 10-12 days & bore got punctured and water of upper table got mix in borewell which is of 2500 TDS. After 15-20 days bore got repaired and puncture done and we put 12 HP 12 stage pump but still it is throwing sand and TDS is still 1800. Actual tds at that level is 300.

The motor in my borewell got stuck and mechanic tried to pull it up using pulley but it didn’t worked. They used pressure pump also and declared it might be caused by landslide internally and it cannot be retrieved. It is a new bore and also mechanic mentioned that 4mm pipe might have been used and suggested to go for a new borewell which will cost more. Please help if there are any better option to get the existing one corrected.
