Boreholes and Well points
Two methods are typically used in South Africa for the drilling of water boreholes, these being the (mud) rotary and air percussion methods. A third method the cable tool method used to be quite popular, but due to the time it takes to drill a hole with this technique it is not quite as popular any more. There are other methods, and combinations of methods, but these are the most common. Most home wells are drilled to 6 or 8 inches in diameter. Municipal or irrigation wells are likely to be drilled at larger diameters, sometimes as much as 24 inches or more.
