Ray from Carine was grateful for the work done on his retic by our team. It was great he bothered to say thanks.
Our specialist electrician tested circuits and found issues with solenoids which were replaced. He also tested the submersible motor. Our pump electricians have done thousands of jobs like this one in Carine.
If you have issues with your solenoids or bore pump call one of our friendly team on 9246 0111.

Submersible bore pump electrical

When a submersible pump is assembled one of the most critical things to get  right is the electrical connection that will spend its life under water.  Most submersible bores in Perth have this underwater connection done using a  heat shrink kit. The submersible motor has a factory installed “blue lead”  which is connected to the electrical cable that will come all the way up
from the pump to the bore head at the surface.

Seen here is the factory lead first being crimped to the electrical cable and then the waterproof heat shrink kit is applied. These are a series of sleeves which are essentially  shrunk over the cable joins provided a waterproof connection.

A separate stainless steel cable holds the weight of the submersible pump so
no stress is placed on this electrical joint. Sometimes in old submersible bores incorrectly joined electrical cables can be a source of trouble. Our  bore electricians are well equipped to diagnose and repair any electrical
problem you may have with your bore or pump.
