Building New Home Water Bore Perth

If you are building a new home in Perth – consider a water bore. It will save you thousands of dollars.

We are quoting for a client who is about to build a new home in Shelley. We are quoting for drilling, a stainless steel submersible .75 KW pump and motor and the down hole electrics for a 10 to 13 metre bore. The start of the water bearing ground is at about 2 metres.

We suggest to drill and case prior to the completion of the building and site cleanup. Avoids mess, driving on a new driveway and avoiding any problems with new front walls. We are also choose a spot that will not be built over which is ideal for ongoing access to the bore head.

We will liaise with the builder on the location of the bore. In the case of this new bore in Shelley the builder wanted to know what the bore would look like at the surface and we sent them this picture,

We have drilled a lot of successful bores in Shelley over the years and know the ground water well and will design this bore to industry best practice with no shotcuts!

Casing a Submersible Water Bore Perth

 

Most submersible water bores are drilled between 18 metres and 60 metres deep depending on the depth to groundwater in Perth. Call 9246 0111.

Most submersible bore holes in Perth are drilled by the rotary mud method. After the desired depth has been drilled the drill bit and the metal drill rods are retrieved. Next the permanent bore casing is lowered into the bore hole in 6 metre lengths which are glued and screwed together.

In this video you will see the Class 9 PVC bore casing being lowered into the freshly drilled bore. The first 6 metres is slotted casing to allow the ground water to flow in. Inside the bore casing will be suspended a submersible pump.

If your interested in a water bore in Perth call 9246 0111 or read more about drilling a water bore at your home in Attadale or any Perth suburb HERE

Drilling new water bore in Perth suburb of Sorrento

We are going to drill a new submersible water bore at home in Sorrento opposite this beautiful park.

It is summer in Perth and householders are getting ready to look after their lawn and gardens during the summer heat.

We will drill a 39 metre bore with a quality Italian submersible pump. This customer is building a new home in Sorrento, he is a repeat customer.

It is great to plan to have a water bore while building as it makes the reticulation and electrical connections easier.

The start of water bearing ground at this block is at 27 metres.  The water bore will be drilled, constructed and designed to industry standards.

We know the area of Sorrento, Hillarys, Waterman, North Beach and Trigg areas very well, having done many water bores in the coastal areas. We have been drilling for over 15 years. We also have specialist teams on the road to repair both your water bore or reticulation.

New Water Bore Carine

Today we visited a new customer in the northern suburb of Carine. Their home is in a lovely cul de sac and they wanted to talk to us about a water bore in time for this summer.

We recommend a 26 metre bore for their Carine house.  The borehole would be drilled through Tamala limestone and the bore would be air developed or reverse flushed prior to installing the pump.

Our drilling teams have done many water bores in Carine and the surrounding areas of Karrinyup, Trigg and North Beach. In fact after 17 years in business this will be the fourth water bore we have done in this Carine street.

We sent a customer in Tuart Hill a quote several months ago for a new water bore at his home in Tuart Hill.

He kept the quote and recently contacted us asking if the quote was still current. We attended on site to discuss where we would drill and cut in to  exsisting reticulation.

Submersible bore Balcatta

We are going to drill a submersible water bore for this client in Balcatta. We have been drilling water bores for homes in Perth for nearly 20 years. To discuss a water bore for Balcatta call us on 9246 0111.

We will be drilling to 28 metres.  Modern submersible water bores operate silently and are not visible from the surface covered by a small rectangular plastic lid.

The client has an existing old style well with a tin lid.  We have done the service and repair on the old well for many years for this long time customer and it has finally given up the ghost. The old well was in the back yard so we will be taking down a panel of fencing so we can use the existing electrical to save the Balcatta customer money.

We will install 100 ml slotted casing to the bottom 6 metres of the bore. We will pack the slotted casing with drillers gravel to enhance water filtration. We will also air develop. This is particularly important as the area has uncertain ground conditions and potential clays. We have drilled a number of bores in the Parkwood area and surrounds.

We also have teams repairing waterbores in the Parkwood and surrounding areas of Lynwood, Langford and Canning Vale and installing and repairing reticulation.

New water bore Southern River

We are going to be drilling at this property in Southern River. We have a lot of experience in the area and can be contacted on 9246 0111.

We have drilled a lot of water bores in the Southern River area and know the conditions well. The depth to water at this property in 4.3 metres and we would drill 18 to 20 metres into water.  The ground conditions in Southern River can vary with interspersed layers of clay which can inhibit ground water. For this reason we often allow extra slotted casing, extra gravel packing and extra air developing to help compensate.
