When we are called to a Perth home to repair a water bore, we need to know that location of the water bore hole.
It is great when the home owner knows the location of their water bore. If the home owner has bought a home with a bore they may not know.
The modern submersible water bores have a green lid which can we covered with lawn, garden bed or as you see here aggregate or liquid limestone in a driveway. The water bore is normally drilled in a drive way if there is tight access for the drilling rig in the garden and lawn of the home.
Adam will cut the bore casing down to below ground level then install the submersible pump and green bore box over the top. Once our electrician has connected it up and we connect to reticulation the paving or the driveway cut out will be put back and everything tidied up.
It is worth noting that it is the old-style wells that come with a tin lid that looks like a witches hat.
So if you are buying a house with a water bore get as many details as you can about the bore like location and depth so that if your water bore needs repair you can call us on 9246 0111 and we can do the best job possible.
Roots are never a water bores friend. We think these are probably ficus roots.
They certainly cause a problem if incorrect bore construction allows them to get inside bore casing taking the easiest route to water.
When we were called to service this Perth water bore we found a different type of root damage. Here the surface roots had strangled the old conduit carrying the 240 v cabling to the bore, interrupting the power supply.
We are up for the challenge when you call us to repair your Perth water bore.
Our specialist bore service electrician located and fixed the problem getting the bore up and running in short time. No wonder this bore had been tripping the circuit breaker. Call us for any Perth bore repairs 92460111 or book a bore repair here
ALSO our drilling teams from Virgin Water bores have drilled many water bores in the Noranda area. Most recently a 20 metre borehole with a long life submersible pump and motor. We installed 100mm slotted casing to the bottom 6 metres of the bore and the rest was class 9 plain casing. The slotted casing was gravel packed to enhance filtration.
Pictured is a pressure release valve or they can be referred to as a pressure relief valve. It is designed to open and release water if the pump is started and the water has nowhere to go.
They are often used when we install a tap connected to a water bore. The valve is spring-loaded and set to open if there are any mishaps with the bore pump running and the tap being accidentally closed.
Also if your solenoid valves in your water bore reticulation fail to open and the pump is running the Pressure Release Valve allows the water to escape and helps prevent damage.
Pressure Release Valves are either preset or calibrated and adjustable. If the submersible pumps is run whilst the water flow is overly restricted or shut off (dead-headed) there could be overheating of the pump motor, in turn causing the rising poly main which carries the water up from the pump to get hot blowing a hole in the side of the softened pipe.
