Deep Bore in Wembley Downs

Virgin Bores has just drilled a deep new submersible water bore in Wembley Downs 9246 0111.

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 on the Department of Water website HERE

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.

Once we drill a water bore we can design a new retic system if needed and will look after our clients ongoing needs to service their bore and retic in the Wembley, Wembley Downs, City Beach and Doubleview areas.
