Water Bore Repair Marmion

One of our bore service team went to a job this morning in Marmion. The bore was installed at this Marmion garden in December 2014 and it is 20 metres deep.

The bore was turning on normally with the power meter spinning faster when the bore pump was turned on with all the normal sounds and the tell tale click but there was no water.

We thought it was going to be a blown poly rising main pipe down the submersible bore hole but it was in fact a split fitting in the bore box. It was probably caused by the surface pipe connections to the retic having being completed and rigid before the pump was turned on for the first time. The very first running of a submersible pump fills the rising poly main with water which is then held there every after by the pumps check valve. This weight most likely stretched the stainless steel draw wire slightly and put undue pressure on the fitting which subsequently split.

We replaced the fitting and the bore is up and running.

Service Solenoid Valves Perth

We sent our man Joe out today to do a reticulation service job in Wembley after the customer had rung us on 9246 0111.

The client wanted his solenoid valves “cleaned up and put together under one big box”

Joe had to chop out most of the original work as shown in the first photo and start again. He cut out all the old valves and put in the new valves and re-plumbed it back in.

Original solenoids installed in a manner like this are not easy to manage

Now anyone who works on the reticulation system in the future can find all the solenoids easily saving time and money for any future repairs. The wiring is still to be connected up and the client was happy .

Pictured is the bore start box for a submersible water bore at a home in the coastal Perth suburb of Trigg.

Trigg water bore start box

There was an existing reticulation system at this home in Trigg when new water bore was drilled. The reticulation system was disconnected from mains water near the water metre. The retic controller was on a back wall of the house and was wired to send a 24V start signal to this bore start box.

The bore start box is located next to the electrical meter box next to the front door.

Gear-drive sprinklers for bore 

A great sprinkler to use with a water bore to irrigate large areas of lawn is a gear drive sprinkler.

A gear drive sprinkler or rotors are economical, low maintenance and are quiet when in operation.

Shown here there are 6 gear-drive sprinklers coupled to a 1.5 KW submersible pump. When fed from a water bore these gear drives are ideal for large properties such as this 2.5 acre property in the Perth suburb of Two Rocks.

Not only do we service and repair bores and reticulation systems but we also install reticulation system. If you want help with service design or install of reticulation in any Perth suburbs or inquire on line HERE

Old bore pumping sand

We were called to repair an old well that was pumping sand in Mount Pleasant.

The spear has collapsed in the old well and it was producing sand blocking pipes and the solenoid valves.

The most economical solution for the Mt Pleasant home was to replace with a new submersible water bore.
