Here we drilled an 18 metre modern submersible water bore for a customer at their home in South Perth.
Here is the report from the driller. Thanks Ben for a great job!
Tom returned and installed the pump at 12 metres at the top of the slotted casing.
He installed a bore box at the top of the bore which is covered over with sand so that bore is not only silent it is invisible.

“That’s the good part of it…that’s your bore water”
Virgin Bore’s most experienced driller, George, is always pleased to see the first rush of bore water after drilling a water bore. Virgin Bores is always happy to deliver a plentiful supply of crystal clear water for their Perth customers.
Immediately after drilling a garden bore to the required depth, the bore is air developed as seen here. Even before the submersible pump is installed. Most garden bores drilled in Perth are drilled by the rotary mud method.
To clean out the drilling muds and “fines” we pump compressed air down inside the bore casing. At this stage air alone forces the groundwater up to the surface.

Virgin Water Bores recently drilled, cased, developed and gravel packed a 18 metre submersible bore in the Perth suburb of Brabham.
A .75 kW submersible motor was used for the Brabham water bore.
In the next few days after the drilling the electrician and reticulation team connect the new water bore to existing reticulation and bore box.
As pictured, we also supplied and installed a tap and pressure release valve.

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.
