WATER-WELL DRILLING

GEFOR has drilled 141 water-wells throughout the country since 2011, both for domestic/private and for communities’ purposes.

 

Tired of water shortage, or saving on water. Please contact La GENERALE DE FORAGE (GEFOR S.A.R.L) for a water well at your house, water well completed in 3 days maximum and in a week time you will have pure water flowing from your tap inside your house.

Clean water provided by GEFOR to the local communities is now available in Kalemie, DRC

The table below shows the number of water-wells drilled throughout the DRC and the towns in which GEFOR has drilled the wells.

The table above is a clear representation of the number of water-wells drilled per town, with Lubumbashi being the highest in terms of water-wells drilled.

The people of Kalemie can now have a clean drinkable water provided by GEFOR.

After the drilling of the well has been completed, and the pump installed, GEFOR has to install a 5000-litter tank so that the communities around this small town could have an easy access to the clean drinkable water

THE COST OF A BOREHOLE

A common question that we receive at GEFOR is “How much does a borehole cost?”

 

It is not a straightforward question to answer. It is the same as asking how much does a car costs.The answer is dependent on various factors.

 

 

What kind of car do you need? What do you want to use the car for? What is the mileage of the car ? There is not a straighfoward price for a car, and there is not one for a borehole either.

 

 

The cost of a borehole is dependent on:

 

  • The number of UPVC to be used in the borehole;

  • The price of the gasoil used by the rig;

  • The price of gravel to be poured in the borehole;

  • The price of the drilling chemicals;

  • The cost of mobilization and demobilization;

  • The labour price;

  • The staying of the crew;

  • And the cushion of the rig.

 

Looking at these factors, one can clearly understand that the price of a borehole will depend from one place to the other.
