This project involved the installation of a pump on 2” Boreline down to 550ft for a prominent water utility in Texas. Due to drought in the area, the well had run dry and the pump setting needed to be lowered. Steel drop pipe has been an ongoing issue for this company and they were open to new ideas.

Boreline Flexible Drop Pipe was presented as a solution to replacing their steel pipe. With Boreline they would have a product that would operate for many years without need for replacement. When pumps went down it would also be quick and easy to pull the Boreline to replace the pump. Boreline also provided a way to combat iron bacteria and other problems commonly found with steel drop pipe.

550ft x 2” Boreline is rolled out and the power cable and pump are attached

Boreline allows for most of the work to be done prior to going to the well site. The power cable was attached to the Boreline and the pump was connected all before going to the well site.

 The pump and power cable are attached and the entire length of Boreline with pump and power cable are loaded onto a trailer ready for the install.

To start the installation the pump and motor are first lowered into the well using the Boreline lifting clamp. The pump is set over the top of the rolling wheel and the remaining length of Boreline is laid on the ground. The well head is held by a truck and is used to control lowering the Boreline into the well.

The weight of the pump pulled the Boreline into the well as the Boreline was guided over the rolling wheel. The pump and Boreline are lowered in one, continuous length.

As the truck approaches the well, the clamp is attached to the Boreline to hold it in place. The clamp is then lowered onto the well casing which allows the well head to be disconnected from the vehicle.

The final part of the project is lowering the well head into position.

The well head is then lowered into place and the project is complete. The entire project was finished in a couple of hours in a quick and efficient manner.
The beauty of Boreline is that much of the work can be completed off site. This keeps problems on site to a minimum as that is where most problems occur.
