Our specialist bore electrician recently was called to a Beechboro customer. The submersible bore was tripping the circuit breaker.
Dave our electrician tested the single phase submersible pump and all the electrical tests were OK but marginal.
There was an old metal start-box which was rusted out and dangerous. He replaced and rewired the start box with a new 1.5 kw rated box with matching 50 mf start capacitor. Dave replaced some dangerous connections at the bore head and retested everything. Given the apparent age of the submersible pump it will likely need replacing in the next few years. We have recommended that at that time the down hole electrical cable and stainless steel draw wire is also replaced.
We have a wealth of experiencing servicing bores and pumps throughout Perth. Give us a call if we can help you.
