Borewells are vertically
drilled wells to extract water from
underground aquifers. The borewell pipes
that are inserted to draw water out are known
as column pipes. These column pipes play a major
role in the functioning and life of the
Borewells can be categorized on various parameters. Two Major parameters are: method Used for borewell and Type of Borewell Pipe used. Method and Machinery Used can vary depending on geological factors and the purpose of borewell.
The types of Borewell are:
- Hard Borewell
- Slow Rig and Rotary Rig
- Power Rig
There are various drilling methods too like Water Jetting, Augur Drilling, Calyx Drilling, Percussion Drilling, Rotary Drilling, Down the Hole Hammering (DTH) Drilling, etc.
