Water Industry Journal June 2021: The Chemical Treatment Solution Targeting Borehole Contamination

Geoquip is featured in Water Industry Journal magazine.

Official figures show that April 2021 was both one of the driest Aprils on record for the UK – and the sunniest. 

Changing climate patterns and the paucity of regular rainfall is just one of the reasons why many businesses, other organisations – and private individuals with large estates or gardens – choose to invest in a borehole.

Having their own borehole saves money on mains water costs and provides complete control over supplies, avoiding the potential of being left high and dry due to a burst pipe or the introduction of water restrictions.

In addition, borehole industry experts estimate that any organisation paying more than £5,000 a year on its water bills can save up to 40% by investing in a borehole...

Installer Magazine December 2020: Maximising Efficiency in Geothermal Installations

Increasing demand for a move towards renewable energy is seeing a rise in the number of geothermal heating installations across both commercial and domestic markets.

Savings of up to 80% compared to traditional fossil fuels and the ability to significantly reduce CO2 emissions are among the benefits, together with the financial support available from Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments.

However, with costs for installing a typical ground source heat pump system in an average home standing at around £14,000-£19,000*, it pays to check that certain steps are in place to help achieve maximum advantage...

Geodrilling International December 2020: How to get to the bottom of Borehole Problems

When the yield from a borehole starts to decline and/or the quality of the water loses its sparkle, underground investigation work will be needed.

Typical problems may include a build-up of iron-related bacteria in the pipes, a break in the lining of the borehole wall, or a blockage within the pump itself.
