If you are building a new home in Perth – consider a water bore. It will save you thousands of dollars.
We are quoting for a client who is about to build a new home in Shelley. We are quoting for drilling, a stainless steel submersible .75 KW pump and motor and the down hole electrics for a 10 to 13 metre bore. The start of the water bearing ground is at about 2 metres.
We suggest to drill and case prior to the completion of the building and site cleanup. Avoids mess, driving on a new driveway and avoiding any problems with new front walls. We are also choose a spot that will not be built over which is ideal for ongoing access to the bore head.
We will liaise with the builder on the location of the bore. In the case of this new bore in Shelley the builder wanted to know what the bore would look like at the surface and we sent them this picture,
We have drilled a lot of successful bores in Shelley over the years and know the ground water well and will design this bore to industry best practice with no shotcuts!

The phones are hotting up with Perth gardeners getting ready for another beautiful summer in the best city in the world!
We had a call last week from a Mindarie resident whose water bore needed repair.
It was a shared bore with a neighbour and they were keen to get it fixed pronto. Sharing a water bore is a great idea as it halves the costs. More shared bore info here.
Our specialist bore electrician, Dave, attended and tested and found the 1.1 KW submersible motor was fused.
He made a number of recommendations. Replace the bore cable down the hole, renew the junction box at the top of the bore, rewire bore to house and replace the submersible motor, start box and wet-end (pump).
Troy forwarded this Mindarie customer the details of what was needed to have a flourishing sea side garden this summer.

This week our specialist bore electrician, Dave, called on a customer in Floreat reporting their submersible motor was tripping the circuit breaker in the meter box.
Dave found the one horsepower 2 wire submersible motor was not fused and the windings appeared intact but there was a complete dead short to earth.
At a minimum the submersible motor needed replacing but given the age of the unit it was decided to replace the wet-end (pump) as well and down hole electrical cable and stainless steel draw wire. Our submersible pump installer, Adam, will attend and install the new pump and motor and cables down the bore hole. There was no electrical junction box at the bore head so in this case Dave will return and one will be added for easier servicing in the future.
Dave found the bore head under a hedge near the letterbox. nice detective work Dave!
It was great we were able to help with repair to this Floreat water bore so the garden would be ready for summer.
