Dave our specialist bore electrician attended a job in Queens Park where it was reported the centrifugal pump for an old well wasn’t working.
The single phase Davey Boremaster tested OK so he replaced the 30 mf capacitor for new and the water bore is working again.
However he did note on his report that there were distinct mechanical sounds and he was not sure how long the pump would last before it fails mechanically.

Sometimes it is confusing when different terms are used when describing submersible pumps and some industry jargon can be understandably hard for the novice to decipher. Talking about domestic stainless steel submersible pumps in Perth we are normally referring to 4″ pumps ( designed to fit inside a 100mm borecasing). What is collectively referred to us the pump is actually two distinct and separate parts. The electric motor ( single or 3 phase) and the wet-end (or pump) which is the series of impellors. Both these parts bolt together and are almost always brand interchangeable i.e each brand fits together with each other.
