borehole cleaning - advanced jetting machine, borestorer

A borehole is a fantastic asset for many companies providing a low-cost, high-quality water supply at a constant pressure. However, over time a borehole may become clogged making it less productive and costlier to run. Drilcorp’s innovative Borestorer® Deep cleaning process can rejuvenate a borehole, restoring it to a ‘newly drilled’ condition and optimising groundwater yield.

Borestorer’s® deep cleaning process blasts impulses of high-pressure water which penetrate screens, filter packs and far into the borehole wall effecting a deep clean removing built up blockages.

Hard mineral encrustation, silt and biofilm are efficiently removed once again allowing groundwater to flow freely to the submersible pump often without the need for chemicals.

Over a period of time boreholes can become clogged with encrustation formed by solidified minerals and natural sediment causing groundwater levels to be drawn down rapidly during pumping causing the submersible pump to work harder at a greater energy cost while producing a reduced yield! Eventually catastrophic failure will occur unless action is taken to rectify the situation.Drilcorp’s high pressure borestorer Unit operated by our borehole engineering services division [BES] does exactly what its name implies – it restores clogged under yielding water supply boreholes and brings them back to optimum performance…. with minimal downtime.


Reduced yield – less water being pumped per hour

  • Fractures supplying the borehole are blocked with precipitated minerals
  • Iron or manganese build up blocking fractures
  • Iron bacteria clogging screens and filtration systems, discoloured water and possible bad taste


Increased running cost

  • Drawdown in groundwater level causes the submersible pump to work harder and use more electricity
  • Filtration system needs more regular maintenance
  • Submersible pump failure
  • Catastrophic failure of borehole
