Information on Winter Sprinkler Bans

Tomorrow (June 1 2018)  you need to turn off your reticulation and water bore for the winter sprinkler bans. This involves households, businesses and councils in Perth, Mandurah and parts of the South-West and Great Southern.

Anyone who uses sprinklers from June to August risks a $100 fine.

Bore water users are allowed to flush sprinkler systems once a week on their normal rostered watering days, either before 9am or after 6pm, for 2 minutes per station to maintenance test their bore. Hand watering is permitted when needed. If you have just installed a new lawn you can apply for a new lawn exemption HERE

Any questions about the Winter Sprinkler Switch-Off can be answered at this Water Corporation website

Water Minister Dave Kelly reminded us that the switch-off saved about five billion litres of scheme water in winter 2017, enough water to fill up Optus Stadium five times.

Winter is a great time to consider a domestic water bore so you and your garden are ready for summer. Waiting times are shorter. Call us on 9246 0111 or go to our website HERE.

 

Burnt Capacitor in Bore Start Box

At this Ellenbrook job our specialist water bore electrician Dave found that the capacitor in the bore start box had ruptured. The client had called us on 9246 0111 when their water bore stopped working.

When our Ellenbrook client reported their bore wasn’t working we talked to them on the phone and asked a few questions to determine who was the best person to send.

As you will see pictured the start box cover was damaged by the burnt out capacitor. After we replaced the capacitor and start box we tested the motor electrically and all was OK. Our electrician carries a meggar tester specifically to send a signal down to the submersible pump motor and back up again to test it against known benchmarks.

Submersible Bore Pump Tripping

A customer in Dalkeith rang us on 9246 0111 after their three phase submersible bore was tripping their 3 phase circuit breaker and they were not getting water from their garden bore.

We have an expert specialist bore electrician (Dave) who was the man for the job. He found that the three phase submersible motor was instantly tripping  the three phase circuit breaker in the meter box when the retic was turned on.

Dave meggar tested the pump motor at the borehead sending a current down hole to the motor. Pump motor tested fine.  What he did find was burnt out wiring in the junction box ( pictured below) contained in the green box at the top of the submersible bore hole. He replaced the junction box and all is working well now. Whilst there Dave tested the reticulation system to make sure there were no other faults.
