Repair Old Well Queens Park

Dave our specialist bore electrician attended a job in Queens Park where it was reported the centrifugal pump for an old well wasn’t working.

The single phase Davey Boremaster tested OK so he replaced the 30 mf capacitor for new and the water bore is working again.


However he did note on his report that there were distinct mechanical sounds and he was not sure how long the pump would last before it fails mechanically.

If your old well water bore needs repair and you are in Queens Park or the surrounding areas of Welshpool, Cannington or Bentley call us on 9246 0111 or check out our website

Fix Old Bore Yangebup

One of our recent bore repair jobs was a centrifugal pump motor tripping the circuit breaker in the backyard of this property in Yangebup. You can see the rusted and partially collapsed tin lid of the bore well in this picture.

Bore safety

As an aside it reminded us all old style bore well lids should be secured. Take a look here on bore safety.

Pump failed mechanically

The 3 phase pump and motor had failed mechanically and was just humming. The pump had not fused and was fine electrically but need replacement.

We returned and supplied and installed a 2.2 kW 3 phase centrifugal pump and fittings.

Our customer now has bore water again.

Fix Old Well South Fremantle

It was really special to work on this 120 year old well in South Fremantle. The client told us the age and said he was told it was originally hand dug through limestone to 60 feet.

The bottom the well is waist deep in water. The next step is we will lower a duly shrouded submersible pump and flexible poly pipe in to the water filled cavity at bottom. A stainless draw wire secured at the surface will then be used if it is ever need to be pulled up for servicing.

We did not go down the well and with the new submersible pump down the well it won’t be necessary for anyone to go down it in the future. That ladder can enjoy its retirement.
