How to drill a borehole in Kenya
This is the movement of the rig, equipment and labor to the site where the well is to be drilled
- Borehole drilling.
This is the actual process of sinking a well in the ground in order to obtain water. The depth of sinking depends on the reading of the hydro-geological survey report. This report states the depth, amount of water expected and the geological structure of the soil and rock underneath. The normal size of the borehole is 8 inches in diameter, but the surface section is 10 inches.
We line the walls of the borehole with mild steel casings to keep the wall from collapsing through out the lifetime of the borehole. Continuous steel casing is used all over except where the aquifer(s) is located. Here, we use slotted casings to allow for water percolation into the drilled well.
It is the application of gravel sand between the borehole walls and the mild steel casings. Gravel filters soil and other impurities, and keeps the casings firmly in position.

It lasts in as much as the water table or aquifer remains
It depends on water usage. For domestic use, a yield of 2 cubic meters per day is sufficient for a homestead. Depending on the size of the commercial farm, a yield beyond 50 cubics per day will be required.
