Marmion submersible water bore

​Water Bore Marmion

​​This week we are drilling a new submersible water bore in Marmion.

The team normally make an early start. This video was taken at 8am and they had already drilled 20 metres of a 29 metre water bore in Marmion. 

The water table was reached at 18 metres. This submersible garden bore is for a new house and access restrictions mean we are drilling at the very front edge of the as yet unlaid sloping driveway.

We specialise in coastal suburbs like Marmion, Hillarys, North Beach and Trigg. We also service and repair water bores in Perth’s coastal suburbs.

Submersible bore Aubin Grove

Virgin Bores will soon be drilling a new water bore for another customer in Aubin Grove. We visited to check out where we are going locate the bore (pictured) As we arrived they were putting up Christmas decorations. 

We have drilled a lot of water bores in Aubin Grove and know the groundwater in the area well. The start of water bearing ground is about 5.5 metres below this block. 

We will drill this customer  an 18 metre submersible water bore. The new water bore would be concealed beneath the lawn. 

The bore will be drilled by a modern and powerful rotary mud drilling rig. 

Our client works in I.T. and is very computer savvy. He is going to interface the single phase bore pump start box to be automatically controlled by his fully programmable “open source” reticulation controller that he imported from the USA. 


If you live in Aubin Grove, Hammond Park, Success or Atwell and you would like a water bore at your home call us on 92460111. 

We also repair water bores, design and install new reticulation systems and repair reticulation in Aubin Grove, Hammond Park, Success and Atwell. Check out our website HERE

Water bore for Parkwood

We are talking to a client in Parkwood about a new water bore. They live opposite this beautiful park.

It is 3 metres to groundwater and there is 22.5 metres of water at their property. We will drill 16 to 22 metres and use a good quality stainless steel submersible pump and motor. The submersible water bore will replace the old style well he dug and sludge pumped over 30 years ago (pictured below) These shallow old style wells are commonly seen in Parkwood, Ferndale and Lynwood. 


We will install 100 ml slotted casing to the bottom 6 metres of the bore. We will pack the slotted casing with drillers gravel to enhance water filtration. We will also air develop. This is particularly important as the area has uncertain ground conditions and potential clays. We have drilled a number of bores in the Parkwood area and surrounds. 

We also have teams repairing waterbores in the Parkwood area and installing and repairing reticulation.

New water bore Southern River

Southern River water bore
Location new bore Southern River

We are going to be drilling at this property in Southern River. 

We have drilled a lot of water bores in the Southern River area and know the groundwater well. The depth to water at this property in 4.3 metres and we would drill 18 to 20 metres into water.  The ground conditions in Southern River can vary with interspersed layers of clay which can inhibit ground water held. For this reason we often allow extra slotted casing, extra gravel packing and extra air developing to help compensate.

We would use a good quality Italian stainless steel pump, a 1.1 kw motor coupled to a 12 stage wet end. 

We attend the property to talk to our client about their requirements and about where we will drilling their water bore. Pictured is where we are looking at drilling at this property. 

We also service and repair water bores, bore pumps and reticulation systems in Southern River. 

If you are in the Southern River area and would like a water bore call 92460111.
