Our installation arm, Virgin Bores, has just successfully completed the installation of a new water bore in Applecross. The proximity to the river was a concern because of salinity levels so special design considerations were used. These included a high yield stainless steel screen. These screens, designed to allow higher volumes of water in than normal slotted PVC casing are able to be put in at a shallower depth. The less dense fresh water is above the underlying more dense water of higher salinity. Virgin Bores local knowledge helped arrive at a great outcome.

We told you on November 11 about a new submersible bore we were drilling in Wembley near Lake Monger.
It was drilled successfully with beautiful and clear water. This is what the submersible bore looks like before it is covered over. The submersible bore green lid is only 400 mm by 300 mm. This was drilled to 25 metres, a common depth for a Perth Bore. It was drilled by our installation arm, Virgin Bores, to replace an old well that had failed.

It is covered over with soil and lawn so it is completely invisible. However it is important that the home owner keeps a record of where the bore is for future access.
Virgin Bores was quoting on a new submersible water bore quote in West Leederville. We spotted this fantastic use of recycling with an old mattress frame / springs used to make a vertical garden. It makes a perfect frame for the plants to climb on. These plants will flourish with a new submersible Water Bore and our nutrient rich Perth bore water, especially as under current government regulations you can use bore water three nights a week.

Virgin Bores has just drilled a new submersible water bore in Wembley Downs. By Perth metropolitan area standards it was very deep at 62 metres. The house is on top of the hill near the water tower.
We know in advance how far we have to drill as we look at the depth to water in the Perth Groundwater Atlas.
Pictured here is a trailer mounted air compressor. We use this via the roll of pipe seen on the back of the truck to pump compressed air down the newly drilled bore. This is called “air developing” and flushes the introduced drilling muds out of the borehole and helps develop water flow from the superficial aquifer before we install the submersible pump.

Today we are drilling a new submersible water bore near Lake Monger in Wembley.
The new submersible bore will replace a really old shallow well which has given up the ghost. Shown here is the 4 inch bore casing ready to go down the newly drilled bore. Also shown is the bags of drillers gravel which will be poured down the outside of the slotted bore casing to act as a primary filter.

Today we quoted on a new submersible bore in Ferndale.
There are clays and potential salinity in the area so we would use our considerable local knowledge and experience to ensure water flow is maximized and salt level is minimized.
The 4 inch submersible bore hole will be drilled to about 18 meters as that is the base of the superficial acquirer at this particular house. The Department of Water data base gives us a lot of the information we need. If you would like a quote on a new submersible bore visit www.virginbores.com.au or call us anytime on 1300 222 720
Recently we helped a lovely 91 year old vision impaired woman in the Melville area to reprogram her reticulation controller for summer. Note the Velcro on the middle button which helps her use her controller day to day. If we can be of any assistance 1300 734 300.
