Five Star Google Review
“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”

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.

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,
If you need help automating your old style well or modern submersible water bore call Troy on 9246 0111.
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.
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
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.
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.
This old style well in Rivervale has stopped pumping water and has lost prime. We got a call on 9246 0111 from a client on Sunday who is selling his investment property in Rivervale.
His old style well in Rivervale has stopped pumping water with the he pump running but no water was coming out. “My bore sounds like it is doing something – very noisy but no water coming out”. The homeowner kindly sent us some pics of the bore pump and well to help us work out the problem.
It is most likely a priming issue of some description. An air leak in the pump is a possibility as the client said the Perth bore pump ran dry for a while. This causes the metal housing to overheat which in turn can heat up the PVC pipe and distort it breaking the threaded seal and letting air in.
The cause may be a failed check valve, leak in the down borehole pipe or it may even be too far to the groundwater level in Rivervale at this time of year.
We will attend Rivervale on Monday and sort the problem as the client is in the process of selling the house. If we can help you with fixing an old well in Rivervale, Kewdale, Belmont or surrounds call on 9246 0111.

This client had a water bore drilled in Autumn of last year in a Perth northern suburb.
It was drilled to 35 metres and has crystal clear water. Salt levels were tested at 300 ppm which in this case was fresher than the clients tap water
A year on the garden is flourishing. Watering the garden three a week with the nutrient rich bore water has made a big difference. The home owner’s water bills bring smiles to the face of these keen gardeners every time they open one. These clients are saving well over one thousand dollars a year in water consumption.

Water bores really are the perfect solution in Perth’s hot dry climate with it’s water hungry sandy soils.
This week we drilled two bores in the Piara Waters.
The water table was relatively shallow at six metres which means would normally drill to eighteen metres. In both of these water bores we drilled to twenty five metres for better quality water and greater flow.
Both of these Piara Waters water bores are being equipped with a 1.1 kilowatt submersible pump. This is perfect for the smaller gardens in Piara Waters.
We have good local knowledge in Piara Waters and surrounding suburbs like Atwell, Banjup and Champion Lakes.
