Bore Automation Old Well

Bore automation Bull Creek
Manual gate valve feeding front station from bore

Today we are visiting a client in Bull Creek about automating his old well. 

At the moment he turns on the old well manually from the DOL starter near the metre box. He then turns on two manual gate valves near the old well to send water to the front and back of his Bull Creek home. 

We will send our specialist bore election to fully automate the system. He will install a new reticulation controller to interface with the bore. He will also run cables to the gate valves and we will replace with automatic 24 volt solenoid valves turned on and off by the reticulation controller.

We are expert at the automation of water bores. For more information check out our website HERE or call Troy on 9246 011

Bore not starting Booragoon 

We had installed a bore for Bob in Booragoon a few years ago. 

He rang to say the bore was not working. We sent out our specialist bore electrician Dave. The submersible pump motor tested ok and he noted that there was no 24 volt to relay from controller. 

He found that there was a red multicore running along the pavers from below the reticulation controller to below the bore start box. The joint connection at the bottom of the start box was faulty so he remade it. 

All working again on front 2 stations. There was no cover on station 3,4,5 and 6, it was cut off due to construction. He fixed. 

We have drilled and repaired many bores in the Booragoon area and surrounding suburbs of Mount Pleasant, Myaree and Melville. If you have a problem with your Booragoon bore call Troy on 92460111 or go to our website HERE

Bore Automation Perth

We are automating an old bore in the southern Perth suburb of Shoalwater. 

As pictured it is an old style well with a tin lid. 

The sprinkler system is currently manually operated with five inground gate valves. This is common with these older style Perth water bores.

We will replace manual valves with 24  V solenoid valves which will be wired into a new reticulation controller. Our electrician will do the interface to start the bore automatically via a 24 V relay. 

We do this type of Perth bore automation quite regularly with single station bore automations from as low as $750.

New Water Bore in Sorrento

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

It is starting to warm up and Perth 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 and Hillarys 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

Water bore for Carine garden
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
