Dave from Hocking called us because his bore was tripping. We sent our Dave, the electrician, to test the 1.5 kw submersible motor. It tested OK. The pump was also running OK but after a while the start box overload tripped so Dave bypassed the faulty overload.
Also there were 6 programs with 6 start times in each, now there is only one program with one start time. The reticulation now comes on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 6 am for 10 mins on the 7 stations.
So Dave’s sprinklers are now coming on and he is all organised for summer.
So if you are in Hocking or the surrounding areas of Wangara or Wanneroo and your water bore needs fixing call Troy on 9246 0111 or book an online service HERE
Our bore electrician Dave attended a bore service job in East Fremantle to repair a water bore reported electrically failing.
The water bore is approximately 50 metres deep with a 1.5 kw Sumoto submersible motor. Dave reported the motor tested OK.
However, the start capacitor in the bore start box was completely blown and part of the start box was melted. So Dave replaced 50MF capacitor for new. He then ran the bore and retic and tested and it was all working OK. Note the ruptured start capacitor. The grey ” gunk” oozing out is typical when a capacitor swells and bursts. This one had burnt and blown more than we normally see. Our customers had smelt the burnt odour walking past the bore control box.
If we can help you with a broken water bore in the East Fremantle, Bicton, Palmyra or surrounds call 9246 0111 or book a bore service online.
James from Mount Pleasant phoned regarding his submersible pump that was tripping the circuit breaker. (Call us anytime on 9246 0111 if you need help too)
The water bore was drilled in his driveway and it was very useful to know that the paver to show where the bore was located was a different color. As pictured the bore head was was covered by an old concrete lid pit.
Our senior experienced bore electrician Dave reported the motor was about 8 years old. The 1.1 kw 2 wire subbie motor was dead short to earth and although the motor’s windings appeared to be intact the internal capacitor had ruptured. So we replaced it with a new 1.1 kw sunbmersible pump motor and replaced the start box and junction box.

As well as servicing and repairing reticulation and water bores in the West Swan area. Virgin Bores install water bores and reticulation in the Swan Valley and surrounding suburbs including Viveash and Ellenbrook.
This reticulation installation job in West Swan was completed last week. This pretty bush garden is now reticulated and ready for summer. It took our guys David and Jack a few days to complete and everyone was pleased with the result.
Jeremy from Dianella phoned us this week saying that the pump on his old style bore well was tripping and was in need of repair.
Our specialist water bore electrician was the man for the job! There was one well liner and it was in the back yard. Most of the bores in the lower lying parts of Dianella are quite shallow. Some up on the hill can be very deep!
Although the three phase centrifugal pump motor tested OK there was a dead short between phases and the isolator had burnt out wiring.
Dave replaced the isolator and renewed all the wiring and the bore pump is working again.

David from Greenwood phoned us on 9246 0111 last week. We have installed and repaired many modern submersible water bores in the Greenwood, Madeley, Marangaroo and Warwick areas. His submersible pump motor was tripping.
We will talk your problems through on the phone and send the right tradesman so we can fix your modern submersible bore quickly and economically.
In this case we sent Dave our specialist water bore electrician. He has worked on literally thousands of water bores across the Perth metro area.
The customer’s 2 wire submersible motor was completely seized, when running it was drawing over 42 amps. It was a totally manual operation with plugs into an adjacent water proof power point which is fed by its’s own circuit breaker/RCD in meter box. All the other bore electrics tested OK.
So we returned to fit new barrel union, new cable down hole and new submersible pump wet-end.
David from Greenwood’s bore and retic are now ready for summer. How about you?
We had a call from a client in Mosman Park to say that her bore and reticulation was not working.
Our bore electrician attended promptly and found that the start box was tripping due to a faulty bore start capacitor. The 50 MF faulty capacitor was replaced and all is working on both reticulation stations again.
The capacitor shown in pic had clearly evident grey “gunk” oozing out the bottom. Sometimes this is black.
Often even an external smell test of the bore start box reveals a tell tale burnt smell when a capacitor has ruptured like this.
We informed our Mosman Park client some of the sprinklers were broken and more repair work was required.
If you are in the Mosman Park area or the surrounding areas of Cottesloe and North Fremantle and need prompt bore or reticulation service or repair call Troy on 9246 0111 or go to our website HERE
