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.

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.

Water bore faulty Perth

The sprinkler bans in Perth end at the end of August. We encourage you to only start using your Perth sprinklers when the garden needs it.

Perth bore owners have been out testing their water bores for the first time this spring. Some are faulty!

We are hearing similar stories like  “I’m starting my bore and the circuit breaker is tripping or fuse is blowing, what should I do?”. We would send our specialist bore electrician Dave who has been doing this for years and is expert and experienced with water bores. He has special equipment to test the circuits & windings of the motor. We can do this without winching the pump up.

We remind our customers that if it is a fused bore pump motor it may be covered under household insurance. Also if the fault is storm related even damage from lightning induction that then this too may be subject to an insurance claim.

Bore light stays on?

Familiar call today from a lady who happened to live in Sorrento, but we get similar calls from bore owners all over Perth. “the light on my bore box on the wall has stayed on even after I have turned the reticulation controller off “.  This can turn in to a bigger problem so first things first, if you are reading this blog and your bore box light is on but there is no water pumping out anywhere please straight away turn the bore mains power off.  Turn it off by either turning off the circuit breaker ( or pulling the fuse) labelled “bore” or “pump” that you will hopefully see in your meter box. Or turn off the bore box isolation switch that is located on the bore box on the wall. ( this is called a bore start box, not to be confused with the reticulation controller). Worst case if you can’t turn it by either of these two methods then turn off your mains power master switch and call us pronto on 1300 734 300.

Lowara bore start box

What has most likely happened is that your automatic reticulation controller has correctly sent the 24 volt start signal to the relay in the bore start box and this has started the 240v bore at the same time as the reticulation controller has correctly sent a signal to open a solenoid valve allowing water to flow to the sprinklers. All good so far but then when the automatic reticulation controller has run through its cycle and shut the last solenoid valve the pump has continued to run. Most likely the start relay has stuck on and needs replacing. Prolonged operation of any bore pump with no water being able to flow (dead heading ) can cause a multitude of problems. Most commonly with submersible pumps the rising poly mainline will overheat and “blow”. With centrifugal well pumps overheating leads to several serious problems.
