Dave from Hocking called us because his bore was tripping. We sent our Dave, the electrician, to test the 1.5 kw submersible motor. It tested OK. The pump was also running OK but after a while the start box overload tripped so Dave bypassed the faulty overload.
Also there were 6 programs with 6 start times in each, now there is only one program with one start time. The reticulation now comes on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 6 am for 10 mins on the 7 stations.
So Dave’s sprinklers are now coming on and he is all organised for summer.
So if you are in Hocking or the surrounding areas of Wangara or Wanneroo and your water bore needs fixing call Troy on 9246 0111 or book an online service HERE
The phones are hotting up with Perth gardeners getting ready for another beautiful summer in the best city in the world!
We had a call last week from a Mindarie resident whose water bore needed repair.
It was a shared bore with a neighbour and they were keen to get it fixed pronto. Sharing a water bore is a great idea as it halves the costs. More shared bore info here.
Our specialist bore electrician, Dave, attended and tested and found the 1.1 KW submersible motor was fused.
He made a number of recommendations. Replace the bore cable down the hole, renew the junction box at the top of the bore, rewire bore to house and replace the submersible motor, start box and wet-end (pump).
Troy forwarded this Mindarie customer the details of what was needed to have a flourishing sea side garden this summer.

“Excellent work from the team at Virgin Bores. Thanks to Brett for organising the job so quickly. The bore was installed and completed within one week of getting the go ahead. All the workers and subbies did a great job and keep us informed of when they are going to be on site. Highly recommended, ten out of ten stars. Very much appreciated”

We will be drilling a new submersible water bore for this front yard in Aubin Grove. We visited to check out where we are going locate the water bore (pictured).
We have drilled many water bores in Aubin Grove area and know the groundwater in the area well. The start of water bearing ground is about 5.5 metres below this block.
We will drill this customer an 18 metre modern submersible water bore. The new water bore would be concealed beneath the lawn and covered by a small rectangular green lid.
The bore will be drilled by a modern and powerful rotary mud drilling rig.
Our client works in IT and is going to interface the single phase bore pump start box to be automatically controlled by his fully programmable “open source” reticulation controller that he imported from the USA.

We uncovered this curious old valve in a job south of the river. The younger retic serviceman on the job had never seen one before.
They are actually a Fimco Hydro Indexing Valve rarely seen in Perth home reticulation systems anymore. This model can handle 4 zones or stations on a reticulation system. These cam-operated valves were used to split up the water delivery from some older well style bores around Perth. No wires or electronics involved.
Each time the bore started the valve opening would move around to divert water to one of four downward facing delivery pipes that can’t be seen clearly in this picture.
