Faulty capacitor replaced by bore electrician

Repair Water Bore Reticulation Mosman Park

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.
