Next Level Smart: Making Use of Bore Water

As you probably know, bore water (groundwater) is a natural resource which can be used for domestic purposes instead of using the clean, quality drinking water supply. Whenever it rains, some of the water soaks into the ground and is stored there in the areas of the earth called aquifers. In order to extract the water from the ground and use it, it’s highly advisable that you have it checked by experts first, to ensure it doesn’t contain any toxic chemicals that might harm the plants (if you’re using it for agricultural purposes).


In order to extract and use the hose water, you need a few things – a submersible water pump and a hose for nominal bore of pipe. Submersible water pumps can be placed directly into the bore water. These pumps are specialised for use in dirty water and are particularly sturdy. Plus, a quality submersible pump won’t have issues pumping out water that contains particles or mud. When buying one, check for the max grain size it can work with – this should give you a clear idea of how large the particles in the bore water can be and still pass through the machine.

Furthermore, you’ll need to attach a hose for nominal bore of pipe. Why such a hose specifically? Well, for the same reason why you want a submersible pump. The large diameter will allow particles and mud to pass through the hose without clogging it up. Flexibore hoses are one of the leading on the market, and for a good reason. They ensure an effective and simple bore water removal and water supply. This resilient and flexible hose can be easily installed, compared to other rigid hoses and pipes.

Moreover, if you need to lift the pump from the bore, you can easily do so by using the Flexibore hoses. The hose is constructed by implementing thermoplastic polyurethane into a woven textile fabric which has high tenacity polyester. The flexibility the hose has comes from from its heavy duty internal fabric allowing it to sustain the weight of a submersible pump. This hose is capable of holding both the water weight and pump, so there’s no need for an additional safety cable.

Simply attach the hose to the pump with the patented couplings, then lower the pump into the bore using either a crane or a simple rolling wheel. The continuous lengths which these hoses are manufactured in allow them to be installed in a matter of minutes and the installation is almost effortless. The same can be said about the retrieval process, making it one of the most efficient solutions for bore water retrieval.
