Last year our installation division drilled a new submersible garden water bore in the Perth coastal suburb of Trigg.
This 44 metre submersible water bore was drilled in 4 or 5 hours and produced beautiful crystal clear Trigg ground water. It was drilled in the driveway.
There are total sprinkler bans in winter in Perth. If you have a bore you are able to run the bore for 2 minute per station (zone) a week for maintenance reasons. This is good not only for the bore, but also for the reticulation system solenoid valves. Any maintenance testing must be carried out between 6pm and 9am on your allocated watering day.
As of the first of September Perth bore owners are allowed to use their bore on their allocated watering days. For this bore it is Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. When you have a modern submersible bore you are able to water three days a week (households with scheme water can only water 2 days a week). The Water Corporation website can help you with your watering days which are based on house numbers.
In September this year there was a total rainfall for Perth of 76mm with 8 days straight of zero rainfall. Please keep an eye on the rainfall and put your reticulation on ‘rain’ if there is some wet weather on the horizon.
If you are near the coast and would like some advice on a modern submersible water bore call 9246 0111.
