Step-by-step Guide to Increase Water Level in Borewells

Category : Boring

Borewells are an integral part of any civic infrastructure in Qatar. With the lack of access to freshwater in Qatar, borewells tend to be the only way for people to obtain fresh groundwater. The water in borewells is considered safe for drinking and as a result, several contractors seek to maximise bore well water levels. Here is a step-by-step guide so that you too can maximise bore well water levels.

What is Bore Water?

Bore water, also known as groundwater or well water, is water that is found underground in porous soil or rock formations. It is accessed using a borehole, which is commonly used to access underground water sources in areas where the water table is relatively shallow. This bore water is pumped out of the ground using a pump and is often used for irrigation, domestic use, or industrial purposes.

How to Maximise Bore Well Water Levels?

To increase the water in borewells, these are the 5 steps you can follow.

  • Inspect Pump and Motor

First, check the pump and motor to make sure they are working properly. If the pump or motor is damaged, it may be causing the water level to drop. This is one of the most common causes of reduced water in borewells.

  • Check for Blockages

Next, check the borewell for any blockages or debris preventing water from flowing freely. Remove any debris or blockages that you find. This will allow you to quickly maximise bore well water levels.

  • Investigate Water Table

If the pump and borewell are clear, the water level may be low due to a drop in the water table. In this case, you may need to deepen the borewell to reach a deeper water source. However, this method of maximising bore well water levels can prove costly.

  • Install New Pump and Motor

If the water level is still low after checking the pump, motor, and borewell for blockages, you may need to consider installing a new pump or motor. Or, you could consider hiring experts like Al Abrag Trading Est. who specialises in drilling borewells. With the help of such experts, you can gain access to new equipment to increase water in borewells.

  • Consult Experts

If you have tried all of these steps and the water level is still low, consider alternative sources of water, such as a well or a municipal water supply. Since this is usually not feasible in Qatar, you can opt for professionals like Al Abrag Trading Est. which is one of the leading drilling companies in the country.

How to Check Water Levels in Borewells?

Once you have an increased level of water in borewells, you need to confirm this by physical measurements. There are a few different methods you can use to check the water level in a borewell.

  • Using a water level indicator

It consists of a tube with markings on it that are placed in the borewell, and a float that moves up and down in the tube as the water level changes.

  • Using a rope and stick

To do this, you will need a long, sturdy stick and a piece of rope that is long enough to reach the bottom of the borewell.

  • Using a pressure gauge

You can measure the pressure in the pipe as it increases with the dropping water level in the borewell and decreases with the rising water levels.


If you wish to eliminate these hassles, you can simply hire the services of Al Abrag Trading Est. who can help you increase and measure water in borewells easily.
