New submersible water bore Watermans Bay

In May 2015 John rang us for a quote for a submersible water bore at a vacant block he had bought in Watermans Bay.

It is a lovely surburb sandwiched between North Beach and Marmion. 

One of our team visited site and picked out the ideal location for the bore after viewing the plans for his Watermans Bay home.

Over two years later we are now drilling John his water bore. We will be drilling a 30 metre submersible water bore based on the Department of Water data base. This should ensure optimal water quality. 

We were recommended to John by a neighbour and we are specialist in drilling water bores along the coast.

New Bore Baldivis

Today we are out quoting on a new submersible water bore in the Badivis area. The Baldivis property is a couple of acres. 

We are quoting a 40 metre submersible water bore which is suitable for the Baldivis property. We will install 100 ml slotted bore casing to the bottom 6 metres of this new submersible water bore and we will pack the slotted with drillers gravel to enhance the filtration. 

The Baldivis borehole will be equipped with a high quality stainless stell pump and motor. 

Winter is a great time to look at a new subsmersible water bore for your home. Call on 92460111 or go to our website HERE

Submersible bore Balcatta

We are going to drill a submerble water bore for a client in Balcatta. 

We will be drilling to 28 metres. 

The client has an existing old style well. We have looked after the old well for many years for this long time customer. The old well is in the back yard so we will be taking down a panel of fencing so we can use the existing electrical.

Broken Reticulation Trigg

A customer rang us about their 30 year reticulation system which is losing pressure to the front verge. The reticulation sprinklers were hardly popping up. 

After locating the front solenoid valves we found the 25 ml PVC pipe was disappearing into a mass of tree roots. It looks like this has crushed the reticulation pipes. 

There was lots of hard yards from here digging and cutting roots from here to see the problem solved. 

If the Virgin Bores team can help you with a reticulation problem in the northern suburbs call 92460111 or go to our website HERE

Marmion submersible water bore

​Water Bore Marmion

​​This week we are drilling a new submersible water bore in Marmion.

The team normally make an early start. This video was taken at 8am and they had already drilled 20 metres of a 29 metre water bore in Marmion. 

The water table was reached at 18 metres. This submersible garden bore is for a new house and access restrictions mean we are drilling at the very front edge of the as yet unlaid sloping driveway.

We specialise in coastal suburbs like Marmion, Hillarys, North Beach and Trigg. We also service and repair water bores in Perth’s coastal suburbs.

Submersible bore Aubin Grove

Virgin Bores will soon be drilling a new water bore for another customer in Aubin Grove. We visited to check out where we are going locate the bore (pictured) As we arrived they were putting up Christmas decorations. 

We have drilled a lot of water bores in Aubin Grove and know the groundwater in the area well. The start of water bearing ground is about 5.5 metres below this block. 

We will drill this customer  an 18 metre submersible water bore. The new water bore would be concealed beneath the lawn. 

The bore will be drilled by a modern and powerful rotary mud drilling rig. 

Our client works in I.T. and is very computer savvy. He is going to interface the single phase bore pump start box to be automatically controlled by his fully programmable “open source” reticulation controller that he imported from the USA. 


If you live in Aubin Grove, Hammond Park, Success or Atwell and you would like a water bore at your home call us on 92460111. 

We also repair water bores, design and install new reticulation systems and repair reticulation in Aubin Grove, Hammond Park, Success and Atwell. Check out our website HERE

Water bore for Parkwood

We are talking to a client in Parkwood about a new water bore. They live opposite this beautiful park.

It is 3 metres to groundwater and there is 22.5 metres of water at their property. We will drill 16 to 22 metres and use a good quality stainless steel submersible pump and motor. The submersible water bore will replace the old style well he dug and sludge pumped over 30 years ago (pictured below) These shallow old style wells are commonly seen in Parkwood, Ferndale and Lynwood. 


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 area and installing and repairing reticulation.
