Submersible Bore Pump Replacement Carramar

If your bore pump needs replacing and you live in Carramar or the surrounding suburbs of Wanneroo, Joondalup or Neerabup we can help you on 9246 0111.

Replace Water Bore Pump Perth

Submersible pumps are very reliable and normally don’t require any pre-emptive maintenance or repair. However, on occasion, they may be susceptible to lighting induction or fusion. It is best to get a specialist bore pump technician or electrician to repair or replace your submersible pump. It will save time and money when you do the job properly. We can also advise on whether any bore pump motor damage may be covered in your household insurance if you have fusion coverage.

Replace Water Bore Pump Carramar

Here we are replacing a 1.1 kW single phase submersible pump in the Perth suburb of Carramar. We also replaced 28 metres of downhole electrical cable with special rubberized bore cable and stainless steel draw wire in this 34 metre deep Carramar garden water bore.

Our specialist bore electrician will then return to install a junction box and test. Once the pump is up and running we will connect back to the reticulation and make sure all is OK.

Crystal Clear Bore Water

“That’s the good part of it…that’s your bore water”

Virgin Bore’s most experienced driller, George, is always pleased to see the first rush of bore water after drilling a water bore. Virgin Bores is always happy to deliver a plentiful supply of crystal clear water for their Perth customers.

Immediately after drilling a garden bore to the required depth, the bore is air developed as seen here. Even before the submersible pump is installed. Most garden bores drilled in Perth are drilled by the rotary mud method.

 

 

To clean out the drilling muds and “fines” we pump compressed air down inside the bore casing. At this stage air alone forces the groundwater up to the surface.

If you are considering a water bore and live in the greater Perth metropolitan area call on 9246 0111 or get a BORE QUOTE HERE

Drill Water Bore in Driveway

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.

Repair Submersible Water Bore Gosnells

 

Chris lives in Gosnells and his modern submersible water bore 2 horsepower 3 phase motor was tripping.

We sent in our specialist bore electrician Dave to test the motor and it tested fusion.

As you can see the bore head has a large gate valve so it took a bit of digging and mucking around.

Adam then returned and replaced the 1.5 KW 3 phase motor, wet-end and cable.

Dave then returned and fitted new junction box. He ran and tested and all OK

We sent our specialist bore electrician Dave to do a range of tests to work out the problem. He tested the single phase two wire submersible motor and found it was fused. The motor start winding is damaged by rupture of internal capacitor.

In some cases a fused motor can be claimed on the householders insurance.

FYI (source Wikipedia)

Tapping is a suburb of Perth, Western Australia, located within the City of Wanneroo. It came into being in the early 1990s as a subdivision of Wanneroo, originally as part of the Carramar estate. Tapping was chosen as the suburb name in honour of an early settler family in the Wanneroo area. Mr William Tapping arrived in 1886 and Molly and Dolly Tapping were long time Postmistresses in Wanneroo. The name for the suburb was approved in 1997.
