Submersible Bore Pump Tripping

A customer in Dalkeith rang us on 9246 0111 after their three phase submersible bore was tripping their 3 phase circuit breaker and they were not getting water from their garden bore.

We have an expert specialist bore electrician (Dave) who was the man for the job. He found that the three phase submersible motor was instantly tripping  the three phase circuit breaker in the meter box when the retic was turned on.

Dave meggar tested the pump motor at the borehead sending a current down hole to the motor. Pump motor tested fine.  What he did find was burnt out wiring in the junction box ( pictured below) contained in the green box at the top of the submersible bore hole. He replaced the junction box and all is working well now. Whilst there Dave tested the reticulation system to make sure there were no other faults.

Repair or Install Water Bore Perth’s Coastal Suburbs

Pictured is the bore start box for a submersible water bore at a home in the coastal Perth suburb of Trigg.

There was an existing reticulation system at this home in Trigg when new water bore was drilled. The reticulation system was disconnected from mains water near the water metre. The retic controller was on a back wall of the house and was wired to send a 24V start signal to this bore start box.

The bore start box is located next to the electrical meter box next to the front door.

Water bores in Two Rocks

We have vast experience in drilling and servicing water bores in the Two Rocks area and surrounds over the last two decades.

We have drilled dozens of bores stretching from Yanchep and Two Rocks across to Seatrees Estate and  Breakwater Estate. Bores in the area range from some shallow ones right near the coast at Yanchep and Two Rocks typically around 18 metres and up to 60 metres further inland near Seatrees Estate and Breakwater Estate.

In the smaller residential blocks in Two Rocks we normally install 1.1kw submersible pumps perfect for normal home gardens. In the 5 acre blocks over at Seatrees and Breakwater we would normally instal a 1.5 or 2.2 kw pump to give closer to 150 litres per minute.

All new drilling and installations are handled by our new Bore team at Virgin Bores.

New Water Bore Nedlands

We have drilled a new submersible water bore in Nedlands to a depth of 22 metres. It is popular in the area to have a water bore to water gardens and lawns. The depth to water in the area is mid range and we would normally use a 1.1 KW submersible pump and motor.

There was no access at the front of this Nedlands property for our bigger water boring rigs so we gained access using a trailer mounted rig. We manoeuvred the rig off a narrow back lane using the trusty old Landcruiser.
