Iron oxide problem on Perth submersible Bore

Look at the iron oxide on this submersible pump.

We winched this submersible bore pump to the surface recently in an outlying Perth suburb. No prizes for guessing this Perth bore has an iron oxide problem. The bore pump was covered in orange slime.

Iron oxide bacteria can clog bore screens and reduce flow. Call us 24/7 on 1300 734 300 to discuss solutions or visit our main website http://www.virginbores.com.au

Water Bore Forrestfield

We have finished drilling a new submersible water bore for a large commercial property in Forrestfield. This Forrestfield bore will be used to irrigate extensive street verges and gardens. Drilling bores in Forrestfield can be tricky with potential salinity and flow concerns.

Fantastic result today though.

After air developing this commercial bore we obtained a plentiful supply of beautiful water. We have installed a three phase 2.2 kw submersible pump giving about 140 litres per minute. This picture shows us washing out the mud tank in which the water and bentonite were mixed.

Our experienced bore electrician attended Russell’s Kewdale property, checked his system and supplied and fitted a new reticulation controller.

We also attended Philip’s Carine property where we replaced his .75 kw 2 wire submersible motor / pump and tested that everything was OK.

“Thank you for your teams excellent work just prior to Christmas. Having the bore operational again has been fantastic. Once again thank you and I am happy to recommend your services to anyone. Regards Phillip.”

Deep Bore in Wembley Downs

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.
