We look after this old style well in the Southern Perth suburb of Applecross hidden in the large back yard of a quarter acre block.
The old well was dug in the 1950’s and has 4 concrete well liners with a three horsepower pump at the bottom of the well.
It has a hydro indexing valve which is very usual to see in a Perth reticulation system. Even the curious magpie has stopped to have a look.
The system uses 2 zones one at the front and one at the rear. Instead of solenoid valves it uses the hydro indexing valves to change from one zone to another each time the system is turned on.
These larger blocks in older suburbs provide a place for children to play and a safe haven for birds and wild-life.
We have had twenty years experience repairing old wells in Applecross and the surrounding Perth suburbs of Ardross and Mount Pleasant. Call us on 9246 0111 or check out our website HERE
As you can see this Applecross home has a beautiful green garden and lawn with a plentiful supply of water.
