Can I get a tap for my Garden Bore?

The answer is YES.

If you have a submersible water bore in your garden we can install a tap that runs off your bore. A tap from a water bore commonly has very high volume that is great for hand watering during hot Perth summers.

“The team at Virgin Bores were simply fantastic and good people to deal with. 

From David, who made the quote process painless and kept us informed along the way, to the drilling crews and Craig the electrician – they are genuine people who care about their work and obviously felt a lot of loyalty and respect for the company.

Drilling Rig Perth

Drilling new Water Bore Perth

Green access lids at the top of submersible water bores.

We drill modern submersible water bores in the Perth metro area from 18 metres and as deep as 40 metres.

Drilling the submersible water bore normally takes about a day and as you see here the top of the bore is covered by a green access lid just surface level of the ground so it can then be covered by lawn. Invisible!

We can also drill in a driveway and cover.

Important to keep a record of where the water bore is located just in case it needs repair in the future.

Can I have a garden tap with my submersible water bore?

Most commonly Perth water bores are connected to the clients existing reticulation. We are able to install a manual tap if requested. The bore tap is usually high pressure and can be used for hand watering and numbers of other things.

People need to realise its only irrigation quality water, not “tap” drinking quality water from the scheme.

Handy bore tap

Can I have a tap from my bore? Sure you can.

We have installed 2 bore taps this week.

Above, Tom installed a brass tap and pressure release valve to this new 22 metre deep submersible bore we just drilled in Morley.

Tom also installed another one to this new 29 metre submersible bore we just completed in Quinns Rocks(above). We install a larger than normal tap to fit a bigger 20mm hose to accommodate the extra flow from a bore.

If we can help you call us on 9246 0111.

Water Bore South Perth

Location for the submersible water bore

On this spot we drilled an 18 metre 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!

South Perth driller’s report

Tom returned and installed the pump at 12 metres at the top of the slotted casing.

He installed a green rectangular bore box at the top of the bore which is covered over with sand so that bore is not only silent but invisible.

Nedlands Water Bores

This week George and the team drilled a 38 metre modern submersible water bore in the leafy Perth suburb of Nedlands.

New water bore being drilled in Nedlands

It was drilled through sand and limestone and there was a good supply of groundwater from 24.5 metres onwards.

With no access to the front lawn this one was drilled in the parking area to the side of the drive. Nice clean up again guys!

Once the pump has been put down the bore hole, it will be connected to reticulation. A green bore box will be put over the top and paving will be all put back and everything tidied up.

If you are in the Nedlands area or surrounding areas of Claremont or Dalkeith and have been considering a water bore call us on 9246 0111.

Wanneroo Water Bore

Russell is one of our specialist drillers for shallower water bores in the greater Perth metropolitan area.

He and his team take a lot of pride in their work so they were pretty pleased with the ‘gusher’ they drilled in Wanneroo recently.

Water Bore in Wanneroo

Wanneroo is generally pretty shallow for a water bore and the bore pictured was 18 metres deep with the bore pump set at 10 metres.

The moment of truth is before even the pump is installed when compressed air is forced down the borehole to develop up and prove the supply.

If you live in Wanneroo and would like to save money and have the best garden in the street call us on 9246 0111.

Water Bore Munster

This is a gusher we recently drilled for a client in the southern Perth suburb of Munster. Munster is located in the City of Cockburn.

As you can see in this video we have drilled and cased the water bore. We are pumping compressed air down the hole to remove drilling fines and muds. This process is also known as air developing.

Air developing water bore in Munster

The static water level was only at 3 metres so we drilled to 11 metres and set the submersible bore pump at 5 metres.

If you live in Munster or anywhere is Cockburn call us on 9246 0111 if you are considering a water bore and would like to save money.

Crystal Clear Bore Water

“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.
