    Case Study – Replacing a Failed Borehole Pump

    When a 180-hectare farm in Cannington was experiencing reduced water output from their borehole pump, they were reliant on mains water at significant expense.

    After contacting Mawdsleys Pumps, we visited their site to inspect and recommended a system refurbishment. Following accepted quotation, we installed a replacement borehole pump, two storage tanks, two booster sets and modified the pipework. Read the full case study here.

    Borehole FAQs

    My borehole pump has failed how quickly can you replace it?

    We will always prioritise a site with no water and attend the same day. We work with a number of suppliers and are often able to replace or repair your equipment the same day.

    How much will a borehole cost?

    Depending on the depth and quality of the water found a standard borehole can cost as little as £3000.00.

    What’s the process of having a borehole pump installed?

    Firstly, it is important to establish if there is water on your property and secondly, the estimated cost of recovering it.

    Mawdsleys Pump Services work with a number of pre-qualified and proven borehole drillers across the UK.

    Depending on your location Mawdsleys Pump Services will put you in touch with the most suitable and qualified borehole contractor.

    On completion of drilling, Mawdsleys Pump Services will analyse the water quality and establish the filtration requirement and pump selection needed.
