Doubleview submersible water bore 

There are several places in the Perth metropolitan area that are quite elevated and require a deep submersible water bore.

This water bore we connected in Doubleview is a good example. We drilled to 58 metres through mainly limestone and sand. We connect the water bore to existing reticulation and the electrical connections have already been done. In this case we are consolidating the client’s two existing controllers into just one. This is because we have far more flow from the bore.  The green box will be place over the hole and it will be covered in grass.

We have installed a 1.5 K submersible pump which is delivering about 80 litres a minute.

Other parts of the Perth metropolitan area that require deep submersible bores are near the water tower in City Beach, the elevated parts of Kardinya and Sinagra near Wanneroo.

Virgin Water Bores are very experienced in drilling deep submersible water bores. If you are in an elevated position and would like to save money with a water bore give us a call on 92460111 or check out our website HERE

Water bore Cloverdale

 

We have installed a submersible pump in a 20 metre bore in the front yard of a new house being built in Cloverdale.

We installed a 1.1 kilowatt submersible pump and the owner will connect to a new reticulation system in their new Cloverdale home.

Hard to imagine that we have thousands of these pumps up to 70 metres below ground all around Perth.

This Cloverdale water bore will be under the driveway in this southern Perth suburb near the airport.

If you would like to consider a water bore in the Cloverdale area call  92460111 or have a look at our website Virgin Water Bores

If you would like a new submersible water bore in the Cloverdale, Kewdale, Carlisle or Rivervale area we have drilled many water bores in the area. We drill new bores, repair water bores, install new reticulation and repair reticulation.

New Water Bore Rossmoyne

 

There was just a small pile of sand from drilling this 18 metre submersible water bore in Rossmoyne.

It was drilled  with the portable drilling rig in the Rossmoyne backyard because of restricted access. Groundwater was encountered at only 4.5 metres down.

Here we see the bore being flushed as groundwater is forced to the surface by compressed air alone. At the same time the “mud tank” is being given a clean. It was used for the recirculating drilling fluids during rotary mud drilling.

The next thing we will install the submersible pump and connect to the retic system.

We will also specialist in repairing your Rossmoyne water bore or reticulation

If you live in Rossmoyne or surrounding areas like Shelley or Willeton call 92460111 or check out our website HERE

New water bore Baldivis

We have drilled a number of submersible water bores in the new residential parts of Baldivis.

The depth to water in Baldivis is generally 5-10 metres. So the finished bore could be between 18 and 24 metres.

There is a ridge in the area so bores can be as deep as 30 metres.

We are very experienced in drilling submersible water bores in these new areas like Highbury Park and Heritage Park. Call us for a chat on 9246  0111.

New Water Bore Nedlands

a77f88bf-95b6-4818-af79-abbe507dc5ec

We have drilled a new submersible water bore in Nedlands. We drilled this Nedlands bore to a depth of 22 metres.

There was no access at the front of the Nedlands property. So we gained access using a trailer mounted rig. We manoeuvred the rig off a narrow back lane using the trusty old Landcruiser.

Applecross Water Bore

We drilled a submersible water bore at this Applecross home in 2015. The owner at the time was building a new home and we talked them through the ideal specifications for their Applecross water bore.

We drilled the water bore to a depth of 27 metres. We used a 1.1 kilowatt single phase submersible pump in this Applecross water bore.

Earlier this year we designed and installed the reticulation system for this Applecross home using an internet wifi reticulation controller.Check out the wi-fi internet controller on our website. Click here

Look how fabulous their Applecross lawn looks at the moment.

Drilling water bore in driveway

We got a call from a client in Sorrento who wanted a water bore but knew he had a real problem getting access for a drilling rig.

We couldn’t use any of our portable or smaller drilling rigs because the ground was mainly limestone. We knew from experience the limestone would go all the way down to his required depth of 28 metres and it needed the power of our truck mounted drilling rigs to be drilled successfully.

There were large brick walls around the entire property so the only option was to drill the bore in his driveway. Normally a simple job to drill a bore in a driveway if it is paving. Then we simply lift pavers, drill the bore, install and connect the submersible pump and then replace the pavers. But this driveway was poured aggregate. Customer was determined to get a bore. Solution…we arranged a contractor to cut a neat circular hole in the aggregate driveway.

We preserved the circular cut out. After bore drilling and installation this same cut out plug shown here was put back as the lid over our bore box. 

It was a very neat solution. Ring us with your Perth water boring challenge on 9246 0111 or visit us here.
