Why we do it


Water Sustainability under Drought

As South Africans struggle to deal with water restrictions, inferior quality water, or no water at all, many businesses, government and private organizations, farms, and homes have started to install their own private boreholes – and for a very good reason. If you’re on the fence about installing a borehole or if you’re unsure about borehole water quality, here are some facts and benefits of borehole water that will sway you.

Borehole Water is Pure, Natural, and Rich in Minerals

Did you know that there are millions of cubic meters of water right under feet? Pure, natural, and rich in minerals, underground water is not only clean, but it’s also one of the most underutilized water resources in South Africa. Hidden from the threat of toxins caused by man and safe from evaporation, every South African has the right to use this natural resource, and a borehole is the best way to go about it.

Borehole Water Allows You to Reduce Your Municipal Costs

Yes, anyone can install a borehole and extract up to 20 000 liters of water a day without having to ask permission. A self-sufficient solution to our water crisis, not only is a water borehole an excellent way to access pure and natural underground water that can be used for drinking, washing, as drinking water for livestock, and manufacturing processes, but borehole water allows you reduce your municipal costs.

Mvula Borehole Drilling is the Best at what they do.

How long can a good borehole last?

Being a long-term investment, how long a well will last can depend on many factors. If taken good care of, a good borehole dug by Mvula Borehole Drilling in South Africa can last through generations. Additionally, the duration before the borehole runs dry may depend on the availability and sustainability of the underground water levels and amounts.

The good thing is that the best service providers will always have a hydro-geologist, who is an expert that determines the water table levels in an area long before a borehole drilling project begins. Most of these specialists are so good at their job that rarely does a borehole drilling project fail to produce water. However, it is important to be advised that some wells may require renovation for them to last long.
