We had a call from a client in Mosman Park to say that her bore and reticulation was not working.
Our bore electrician attended promptly and found that the start box was tripping due to a faulty bore start capacitor. The 50 MF faulty capacitor was replaced and all is working on both reticulation stations again.
The capacitor shown in pic had clearly evident grey “gunk” oozing out the bottom. Sometimes this is black.
Often even an external smell test of the bore start box reveals a tell tale burnt smell when a capacitor has ruptured like this.
We informed our Mosman Park client some of the sprinklers were broken and more repair work was required.

Tomorrow (June 1 2018) you need to turn off your reticulation and water bore for the winter sprinkler bans. This involves households, businesses and councils in Perth, Mandurah and parts of the South-West and Great Southern.
Anyone who uses sprinklers from June to August risks a $100 fine.
Bore water users are allowed to flush sprinkler systems once a week on their normal rostered watering days, either before 9am or after 6pm, for 2 minutes per station to maintenance test their bore. Hand watering is permitted when needed. If you have just installed a new lawn you can apply for a new lawn exemption HERE
At this Ellenbrook job our specialist water bore electrician Dave found that the capacitor in the bore start box had ruptured. The client had called us on 9246 0111 when their water bore stopped working.
Badly ruptured capacitor in start box.
This start box has a burnt out capacitor.
When our Ellenbrook client reported their bore wasn’t working we talked to them on the phone and asked a few questions to determine who was the best person to send.
As you will see pictured the start box cover was damaged by the burnt out capacitor. After we replaced the capacitor and start box we tested the motor electrically and all was OK. Our electrician carries a meggar tester specifically to send a signal down to the submersible pump motor and back up again to test it against known benchmarks.
We have been in the bore drilling and repair business for nearly 20 years and will promptly diagnose bore faults and will repair in an economical and timely fashion. We carry the majority of spare bore and pump parts onboard.
We provide a fast local bore and reticulation repair service to Ellenbrook, The Vines, Aveley, Brabham and all throughout the Swan Valley.
