  1. Cheers, I’ll keep that in mind. I know that FIL will never buy the cheapest option. We bought a pump last year and he was quite fussy about getting the right one, Village experience I suppose. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Thanks khwaibah for the information and link. I’ll check it out. Unfortunately options for all types of equipment available in Thailand often include a lot of cheap and cheerful rubbish. I’m always amazed how FIL manages to repair the stuff. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. Has anyone had any experience with solar powered pumps direct from the borehole? We bought 1000 coffee plants so that FIL had something with hopefully a little better return than cassava, rubber and rice that they currently grow. We had a borehole drilled for irrigation in the dry season. FIL pumps from the borehole into a lined pond and then pumps from the pond to the pipe system around the plants. Electric is costing around 1500 to 1600bt per month. My wife has suggested water tanks so that we pump direct from the borehole to the tanks and then gravity feed the plants. This should reduce the electricity cost hopefully. We’ve also seen solar powered pumps but not sure of the power required to pump from minus 40-50mtrs to plus 5m above ground. What is general set up or most cost effective set up for irrigation from the borehole? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
