Install Tap & Pressure Release Valve on Water Bore

We recently drilled a modern submersible water bore in the Perth suburb of Waikiki.

Subsequently Jack attended to connect the bore to the client’s exsisting reticulation system and disconnect from mains water. He then installed a tap and pressure release valve for our Waikiki client. A tap using bore water is useful and it is also usually high volume.

You can see the PRV in this picture on the vertical PVC piping of the tap. The PRV is a safeguard against ‘deadheading’ the bore pump.

Can I get a tap for my Garden Bore?

The answer is YES.

If you have a submersible water bore in your garden we can install a tap that runs off your bore. A tap from a water bore commonly has very high volume that is great for hand watering during hot Perth summers.

“The team at Virgin Bores were simply fantastic and good people to deal with. 

From David, who made the quote process painless and kept us informed along the way, to the drilling crews and Craig the electrician – they are genuine people who care about their work and obviously felt a lot of loyalty and respect for the company. When things got a little stressful towards the end, Troy came through with great communication and responsiveness. 

Highly recommend this family feel company”

Drilling Rig Perth

Drilling new Water Bore Perth

Green access lids at the top of submersible water bores.

We drill modern submersible water bores in the Perth metro area from 18 metres and as deep as 40 metres.

Drilling the submersible water bore normally takes about a day and as you see here the top of the bore is covered by a green access lid just surface level of the ground so it can then be covered by lawn. Invisible!

We can also drill in a driveway and cover.

Important to keep a record of where the water bore is located just in case it needs repair in the future.

Automate Old Bore Perth

We are presently automating the reticulation systems in two adjacent Duncraig homes.

They share an old style bore which had been operated by a manual switch. So far we have installed a separate automatic reticulation controller on each property and are replacing the old manual gate valves with automatic solenoid valves (3 solenoids on one property and 5 on the other).

The retic system at one house hadn’t been used for 20 years so fingers crossed when we give it a well overdue service and some TLC!

We are up for a challenge,

Pulling up a submersible water bore.

If your modern submersible water bore is not working call us on 9246 0111 and we can talk through over the phone what the problem may be.

Portable winch used to pull up submersible pumps

In some circumstances a submersible pump and motor will need to be pulled up to the surface by one of our water bore repair teams with a winch designed for the task.

The torpedo like submersible water bore pump is usually suspended at the bottom of the borehole by a stainless steel cable used to retrieve the pump. Also coming to the surface from the pump will be a flexible poly pipe that delivers the water and an electrical cable that powers the motor.

Our service teams connect the stainless draw wire to one of our purpose built portable electric winches and simply winch the pump to the surface. Simultaneously though it is important that we also manually gently pull up the electrical cable to prevent jamming and damage to the heat shrink joint.

If your water bore needs fixing call us on 9246 0111 and we will assess what we think is the problem over the phone and send the correct member of our team to fix your water bore. If you submersible pump needs to be pulled to the surface call 9246 0111 or get some detailed information on your submersible pump HERE

Trailer mounted drilling rig for limited access

Drilling water bores in limited access or difficult sites just got easier in Perth. One of our drillers just completed a new trailer mounted drilling rig.

Rig fits into tight spaces

It can be manhandled through tight spaces as little as 2 metres wide and 2.3 metres high. We can push it under carports that are high enough and through to the backyard. This new water bore drilling rig can even drill through limestone prevalent along our Perth coastal strip.

If you have a water bore requirement that is in a difficult to access site then give our new bore team a call at Virgin Bores on 92460111 or visit http://www.virginbores.com.au. We also have portable bore drilling rigs that can be reassembled in even more difficult to access sites and extra tight spaces for bores that are being drilled mainly in sand or light clays.
