Hi friends !
I have a problem with my bore well.
The bore well is of 40 feet depth.
The casing pipe of 4 inches dia is dummied at 35 feet .
The bottom portion contains holes for 5 feet height covered with nylon cloth for filtration.
The motor capacity is 2 HP.
The bore well is not in operation for about six months.
The suction pipe is of 3 inches dia with foot valve at the bottom ,running through the 4 inch pipe for a depth of 33 feet.
Water output is zero as of now.
We tried the following :
- Removed the suction pipe an cleaned the bore casing pipe with a shell. No sediments were found.
- Removed the foot valve and introduced a check at the top .
None of the above worked.
The water level is at 15 feet from ground level.
The plumber says the sediments are choking around the holes in the casing pipe and the bore well has become useless and a new bore well is to be drilled.
Pleas e advise.
