Drilling water bore in driveway

We got a call from a client in Sorrento who wanted a water bore but knew he had a real problem getting access for a drilling rig.

We couldn’t use any of our portable or smaller drilling rigs because the ground was mainly limestone. We knew from experience the limestone would go all the way down to his required depth of 28 metres and it needed the power of our truck mounted drilling rigs to be drilled successfully.

There were large brick walls around the entire property so the only option was to drill the bore in his driveway. Normally a simple job to drill a bore in a driveway if it is paving. Then we simply lift pavers, drill the bore, install and connect the submersible pump and then replace the pavers. But this driveway was poured aggregate. Customer was determined to get a bore. Solution…we arranged a contractor to cut a neat circular hole in the aggregate driveway.

We preserved the circular cut out. After bore drilling and installation this same cut out plug shown here was put back as the lid over our bore box. 

It was a very neat solution. Ring us with your Perth water boring challenge on 9246 0111 or visit us here.
