Introduction of borewell
After 70 years of independence, the majority of our workforce is into agriculture. India being an agrarian country, farmers depend on monsoon. Due to the erratic nature of Indian monsoon, farmers utilise groundwater, and it is their primary source of irrigation.
Until the 1970s, open wells were used as the main source of water. UNICEF brought the idea of borewell in India, and soon borewell pipes replaced open wells. India has over 30 million borewell pipes.
Borewells are human-made wells dug deep into the ground to tap into water-bearing soil, or rock layers termed aquifers.
Need of borewell
In the initial years, borewell was used primarily for agriculture purposes. Now 75% of the borewell pipes are used for agriculture and rest fulfil the domestic and commercial needs.
There are various other needs of borewell:
Types of borewell
Borewells can be categorized on various parameters. Two Major parameters are: method Used for borewell and Type of Borewell Pipe used.
Method and Machinery Used can vary depending on geological factors and the purpose of borewell. The types of Borewell are:
Based on the type of borewell pipe. The types of Borewell are:
Borewells are vertically drilled wells to extract water from underground aquifers. The borewell pipes that are inserted to draw water out are known as column pipes. These column pipes play a major role in the functioning and life of the borewell.
The choice of borewell pipes used can be a turning point in the functioning of the borewell. In recent times, uPVC pipes took after PVC Pipes and GI Pipes. The reasons why uPVC pipes are preferred are widely known. Few of the advantages of using Upvc borewell pipes are :
Vinyl Pipes have been in the industry for 33 years serving the needs of its customers successfully. We provide 100% metal free uPVC pipes .our product is lead-free and heavy metal free. They have a lifespan of about 50 years.
Borewells revolutionised the concept of groundwater extraction. Vinyl pipes is an honest attempt to revolutionise the usage of Upvc borewell pipes. We believe in delivering 100% leak-proof, energy saving pipes.
