One of our bore service team went to a job this morning in Marmion. The bore was installed at this Marmion garden in December 2014 and it is 20 metres deep.
The bore was turning on normally with the power meter spinning faster when the bore pump was turned on with all the normal sounds and the tell tale click but there was no water.
We thought it was going to be a blown poly rising main pipe down the submersible bore hole but it was in fact a split fitting in the bore box. It was probably caused by the surface pipe connections to the retic having being completed and rigid before the pump was turned on for the first time. The very first running of a submersible pump fills the rising poly main with water which is then held there every after by the pumps check valve. This weight most likely stretched the stainless steel draw wire slightly and put undue pressure on the fitting which subsequently split.
We replaced the fitting and the bore is up and running.

Ray from Carine was grateful for the work done on his retic by our reticulation repair team. He had phoned us on 9246 0111.
It was great he bothered to say thanks. Our specialist electrician tested circuits and found issues with solenoids which were replaced. He also tested the submersible motor. Our pump electricians have done thousands of jobs like this one all over Perth.
If you have issues with your solenoids or bore pump call Troy on 9246 0111 or check out our website
Today we were busy talking to customers about water bores and water bore repairs on 9246 0111.
We just completed drilling a new submersible bore in Girrawheen. This bore was drilled to 42 metres deep and because of access restrictions for our drilling rig we drilled this bore in the driveway. Once the submersible pump is installed only a small access hatch will be visible that can be driven on.
We have drilled in Girrawheen and surrounding suburbs for many years so have an excellent knowledge of the ground conditions.
Girrawheen water bores are mostly in the 25 to 50 metres deep range.
Out of interest – “On 26 June 1970, the Shire gazetted the name “Girrawheen”, meaning “place of flowers” or “the place where flowers grow” in an Eastern States Aboriginal language, possibly that of the Kambuwal people in southeastern Queensland” (source: Wikipedia)

Virgin Bores was quoting on a new submersible water bore in West Leederville when we spotted this fantastic recycling with an old mattress frame / springs used to make a vertical garden.
It makes a perfect frame for the plants to climb on. These plants will flourish with a new submersible water bore and the nutrient rich Perth bore water. The Perth coastal plain is generally ideal for bore water. Unlike the old fashioned wells with the tin lids a modern submersible bore is invisible and silent. It lasts and will save you money. Also with a water bore you can water your garden three days a week instead of two on mains water. Obviously you only water when needed.
