I had to use my neighbors water for my koi at municipal rates, because my surface water was not good enough for koi, so I decided to drill deep. Quite an expensive exercise. Drilling = R 70 000 and pump = R 35 000.00, total: R 105 000.00.

After 6 days of drilling up to 120m, I finally struck excellent quality water. bounce

Now I can finally run an almost open system @ R 2.90/10 000 liter and do away with some expensive pumps and filtration, and won't even mind if a pond leaks. Very Happy

Ja Pieter, het maar lekker gestress. As hulle nie water kry nie, moet jy steeds betaal.

Op 85 meter wou hulle ophou omdat hulle nog nie 'n klipbank getref het nie en dan raak dit 'n risiko om boor toerusting te verloor aangesien die gat kan inval weens gebrek aan vastigheid.

Ek smeek toe om nog net 6 meter dieper te gaan (een pyplengte) en walla, slaan klip 5 meter verder en toe kon hulle aangaan tot 120. Die probleem in so geval, jy moet 'n staal casing insit tot waar die klip begin, 90 m.

Alls well that ends well.
