Due to the recent droughts, water has become a very pricey commodity. Farmers without access to regular channel irrigation can find themselves even more at the mercy of others. One solution is to invest in a borehole and to access groundwater. The advantages of a farmer installing a borehole and pumping water for crops is obvious, but many farmers are daunted by the belief that it will involve a lot of equipment that is hard to maintain. Bore water retrieval What farmers need is a low maintenance system of borewater retrieval that is easy to install and maintain. It is available from Crusader Hose and it ‘s called Flexibore.
Its construction from polyester fibre means that compared with traditional bore water pipes, there is no build up of calcium, lime or rust to compromise the flow of water over time. Another advantage for farmers is the depth of groundwater that can be accessed by Flexibore. The standard length is 200m, and it works with most submersible pumps for continual water flow.
As a result the farmer is more prosperous, his crops have adequate water and most importantly the farm is not completely at the mercy of the elements.
