House Construction - Experience

Postby swamy_blr » June 17th, 2016, 4:29 pm

Hi Friends,

Shortly I am starting my Dream house Construction, Last week cleaned the Site and Bore well Drilling is done.

Bore well Drilling experience

Got the approval from BWSSB (Cauvery Bhavan) by paying 500 Rs Fee (Paid @ Canara bank) and submitted the form and by following up for 2-3 weeks with bribe of Rs 500 + Geologist Charge Rs 2000/- (Total Approval charge is Rs 3000 including Geologist Fee)

Geologist identified 2 Points (one North East & Other North West) I went with North west due to more water source. I engaged with Manasa Hitech Drilling agency for Bore well drilling, They started the activity at 6:30 AM and ends at 7:00 PM.

We got the Water first at 220 Feet (1 inch) and then at 650 Feet about 1.5 to 2 inches and continued to drill till 900 Feet.
The Water flow was consistent from 650 to 900 Feet. So finally had to stop it. Happy to get that much water in this hot summer days, Surely it will increase in Rainy seasons. It's enough for us for one 2BHK Rent & Self Purpose (Duplex).

The Borewell Charges are -
2.2" MS Casing done was for 100 Feet (100 * Rs 380) = 38000
10" PVC Casing 20 Ft (20 * 325) = 6500
Drilling charges range from 250 to 900 (Rs 60, 70, 80, 95, 115, 135, 155, 195 )
Additionally they charge for Collar, Welding, Caps + Transportation + Labour -- Rs 3500
Water flushing charges - Rs 15 Per feet (upto 450 they considered)

Total Drilling charges comes to around Rs 146000/- + Some tips of (Rs 2000) to Labours

Lesson Learnt
1) I could have saved 7600/- by putting MS Casing upto 70-80 Feet as suggested by Geologist , be careful about this and inform them in advance about the feet you will put Casing (Generally 60-80 is enough) else it is additional cost
2) There is no need of 10" PVC Case which they intentionally put upto 20-40 Feets which could save us money.
3) Ensure your presence during Welding the MS Case Joints, else welders will do shady jobs which will result later in leaking

Overall happy with Output.

Next Steps....

I am in Final discussion with my Architect who is designing my House, Tomorrow we are finalizing the Floor Plan and will share with you for review and any correction.

Hi Goutam,

Regarding Borewell expenses, if the drilling feet is below 1000ft then consider 1.5 lakhs, also keep 1 lakh for motor, wires, panel board, HDPE pipe, miscellaneous, so total 2.5 lakhs is needed towards Borewell expenses. If you have water connection like (Cauvery/Society) don't go for Borewell, not worth considering the charges and water source now available, even if you drill 1300 feet sometimes we don't get water. Don't know which area your site is located. Please take judious decision on water source. All the best.

Thats correct- Invest in borewell if you are in a guarantee that for 10+ years you are able to get the water.
But this might no be considered if there is no kaveri water supply in your area.
Also need to check the quality of water for hardness and fluoride for suitable usage.
I have seen last week 3 failed borewell drills in jayanagar 9th block with issue with soil- So consult 2 geologist and make a wise decision.

Swamy, go with Texmo. I got it for 90K including installations, pipe and wires etc.
I Think 3/4HP 30-40 stage with 3 Phase is more than enough for 950 feet.
PM if u want more details, i will get the complete details from my bill.
