-REPOST FROM GENERAL DISCUSSION AS I HAD NO RESPONSE IN 7 DAYS-
My team is working on a remote washdown station. (Energy and Water aspects)
I am looking at water aspect.
We have chosen Bore Water based upon its’ common application in the area & resilience to moderate drought.
As well as reading a book on bore well construction & maintenance, I have taken particular attention to the website of Decle Drilling, Cooktown.
As part of the task we need to determine costs.
I also need to determine the required depth of the well, given geology, water table & regulation concerns.
I feel that it would be highly beneficial, perhaps even crucial, to talk to a water borer via phone or email, or pose questions via EWB.
The questions would be, given the assumptions below:
1. How deep would the bore need to be?
2. What diamater should the bore be?
3. Is a BrushLess DC pump appropriate?
4. What would the be upfront cost be?
5. How much time/money should be set aside for annual maintenace?
Research suggests it varies, but 1 specialist visit per year seems generally appropriate.
Maximum draw 1000L of water per day
Total 120,000 L per year (equivalent of 120 days per year at full draw)
2L per minute (average) peak draw (assuming daily load is spread out over 8 hours)
Pump will be filling a storage tank so a higher pumping rate for (e.g. 20 minutes per hour) would be completely acceptable.
