Location is the main factor you should keep in mind in order to select a water pipe that would perform best in those conditions.


Generally, all the drills look similar but a closer look with help to determine if the quality of the drill is good or not. Some manufacturers provide drills that have low-cost, but these drills are also low in quality. Low-quality drills have a shorter service span and therefore the ROI for these drills is very low. In order to select a water drill pipe that fits your requirements make sure it has features that could simplify maintenance as it makes it easy for the maintenance team to extend the service life of the drill.

Examine the soil condition properly. Mechanical drillers and hydraulic drillers are the two types of drillers. Mechanical drillers are good for drilling in the sand, clay and loamy soils but when it is required to drill deeper through hard rocks hydraulic drill is a better choice.


Select a water drill pipe manufacturer that provides a 24/7 technical support, user manuals and video manuals. Some manufacturers also provide training facilities so that the workers could be trained with the drill before using them.  Make sure that the manufacturer has the spare parts in advance.
