Origins of PUMPILO®
“I learned from my father, who was a renowned geophysicist, that there are thousands of small-diameter boreholes designed to check the subsurface around mines. Now, since most of them are filled with water at a depth of about 30 meters and no pump could fit in them, he suggested I should think about it.”
