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.

Is my bore pump motor covered under insurance?

If your water bore is tripping the circuit breaker when turned on then there are a variety of possible causes. One of these is a fused motor. Ring us for free over-the-phone advice or book our specialist bore electrician to attend. We can certify it as fused if this is the case.

Perth Pump/Motor Fusion and insurance cover: Many household insurance policies covering Perth homes have fusion  cover for fused electric motors (sometimes referred to as burnt out motors). This generally applies to bore pumps of both the centrifugal (old well liner style with tin lid) and the modern submersible water bores.

A common insurance definition for FUSION is “The actual burning out of an electric motor or its wiring caused by the electric current in it.” In the case of either centrifugal bore pumps or submersible bore pumps this refers to the electric motor that drives them. Various terms are used to describe the event of fusion. Some will refer to the pump motor as “burnt out” or “fused”. Some insurance policies refer to power surges. Additional insurance cover may be provided for lightning or storm damage to bore pump motors. Your bore pump motor replacement may be covered under you insurance. We have over a decade’s experience replacing fused pump motors in Perth and surrounds. Garden water bores of the modern submersible type are our specialty. we also repair commercial bores and the old well liner type. Call us on 1300 734 300. Perth metro-wide.
