Visited two homes today, both coincidentally in Dianella, to advise on automating their bores. They were both typical old well style bores commonly seen in Dianella. Both bores were manually operated from a DOL starter and ran two separate stations front and rear. Two gate valves were manually turned to send the water either to the front or back after the bore was started manually. This is a very typical early installation common in Perth bores.
To make a bore reticulation system automatic we firstly fit an outdoor reticulation controller and replace the manual gate valves with automatic solenoid valves. Our electrician then interfaces the retic controller to automatically turn on the bore starter via a 24v relay. We can automate either 3 phase or single phase bores. When the reticulation controller (timer) turns on the bore it opens the required solenoid valve at the same time and ” hey presto” the bore reticulation works automatically at the preprogrammed time! We program it to comply with Perth bore sprinkler roster days and the homeowner can “set and forget”.
