How to Clean out silt or Develop a Bore/Well


How I increased the output of my bore by 30%. Check out the video

If you have a bore/well, chances are that it may not be as deep as it once was due to drawing in dirt from the water bearing zones and
depositing it down the bottom. That can affect the performance of the bore/well by blocking off some of the slotted casing and preventing
the same volume of water entering.

As long as the water in your well is not too deep (over 180ft or so, depending on available air pressure), you can actually easily clean
out your bore/well using a Brumby S1 or XS1 pump. The L2 will also work, but not prefered, as valve seats may be affected. 
It's simple, providing the pump is suspended on flexible poly or similar piping.

All you do is prise the cap off the bottom of the pump strainer, connect water delivery pipe and air line, feed all the way down to the
bottom and give it air. You can jiggle the pump up and down with the piping and it will pick up the sand and silt and lift it to the
surface along with the water.

I deepened my shallow, low producing bore from 11 to 12m in just a few minutes and increased the flow rate at ground level from 708L/hr to 1040L/hr.

If the well is quite deep, the weight of the piping can make the job a bit more difficult, but it is still quite doable if care is taken.
Please have a look at the short video for a demonstration...
