Hi

I have a 6 inch borewell, with discharge of 1.5-2 inches water.  Water was first struck at 150 feet and the borewell is dug to a dept of 800 feet.

What is the ideal HP of the motor to be installed and at what depth must this be done for optimum utilization and less power consumption for agriculture purpose. 

Regards

Dear Experts,

I have a borewell in my house at KR Puram, Bangalore. The depth is about 580 feet. Rock was hit at around 107ft and the casing is done upto 110 feet. The submersible pump is fixed at 440ft which is of 4 h.p. I have encountered some loose gaps and boulders @ 320 and 420 ft respectively, and I have inserted slotted pipes for the entire well to get rid of the possible issues with loose gap and boulders. I have used the borewell for my house construction without any problem for almost an year. Now from the past few days, water from borewell is muddy.

Hi,

I had drilled a borewell for 400 feet in June'15. There was an existing borewell at the same place for 80 feet, but that was not yielding enought water during summer, hence i drilled it further to 400 feet. However it is still not yielding the desired result. The water coming out of the borewell is very less.I had used 2hp compressor motor and it has to lift the water to the 3rd floor where i have an overhead tank.

The Mahanadi's longest tributary, the Shivnath, has borne the brunt of urbanisation and industrialisation but the impact has been felt the most by residents. We capture their story in pictures.

The Shivnath River is the longest tributary of the Mahanadi River. It was the first river in India whose water rights (23.5 km stretch of the Shivnath River in Durg district, Chattisgarh) were sold to a private company Radius Water Limited (RWL) 16 years ago.

The concepts of System of Rice Intensification help farmers adopt practices based on their local conditions. Farmers, and an SRI expert in Chhattisgarh, show how it has worked for them.

Muneswar and more than 170 farmers in Ambikapur, Chhattisgarh have no regrets after shifting over from traditional agricultural methods of farming to the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) method. Why would they? Most of them have been overwhelmed by the kind of returns they have got compared to their investments.

"The crop yield has increased to more than two and half times, and we are getting better returns," says Kisan Naihar Sai, an SRI beneficiary.

What is System of Rice Intensification (SRI)?

Hi,
We are a residential complex in Bangalore, India

We have 2 overhead tanks in 2 adjacent buildings to which water is pumped through a common underground reservoir. Presently we have 2 separate pipelines for both the tanks running in parallel till 75% distance and then the 2nd pipeline extends onward.s
The pumps have been in use for 15 Years and so I presume they would not be very energy efficient.

Hello,

Sumersible pump is stuck at a depth of 180 ft together with 7 lengths of GI Pipe after working for 7 years. For removing the pump, people are asking for 30000 rupees and are not assuring that the pump will be in working condition after retrieval. Please let me know any safe technique for removing the pump. The pump may have got stuck due to sand accumulation .

Hi,

Ten days ago we have dug a borewell 500 feet deep. It is a 6.5" borewell, when we dug the bore we found less water. in the next day we found water at 450 feet. Yesterday we tested again and found water atin 35 feet and water was clear. Can we go for submersible pump in this case? Please advise advantages and disadvantages of submersible motor over compressor motor.  Herewith I am attaching the soil test report for your reference.
