Submersible bore Balcatta

We are going to drill a submersible water bore for this client in Balcatta. We have been drilling water bores for homes in Perth for nearly 20 years. To discuss a water bore for Balcatta call us on 9246 0111.

We will be drilling to 28 metres.  Modern submersible water bores operate silently and are not visible from the surface covered by a small rectangular plastic lid.

The client has an existing old style well with a tin lid.  We have done the service and repair on the old well for many years for this long time customer and it has finally given up the ghost. The old well was in the back yard so we will be taking down a panel of fencing so we can use the existing electrical to save the Balcatta customer money.

New Water Bore Rossmoyne

 

Watching this video you can see this new Rossmoyne Water bore is gushing with water and there is only a small pile of sand from the water bore drilling process for this 18 metre submersible water bore in Rossmoyne.

It was drilled  with the portable drilling rig in the Rossmoyne backyard because there was restricted access. Groundwater was encountered at only 4.5 metres down.

Here we see the bore being flushed as groundwater is forced to the surface by compressed air alone. At the same time the “mud tank” is being given a clean. It was used for the recirculating drilling fluids during rotary mud drilling.

The next thing we will install the submersible pump and connect to the retic system.

Earlier this year we designed and installed a new reticulation system for this Applecross home using an internet wifi reticulation controller. If you are in the Applecross area and would like to replace you old retic system we can design and install a new reticulation to fir all your needs.

Sand in your bore?

If you have a water bore and have white sand coming from your sprinklers call us on 9246 0111.

You’re never meant to see white sand coming from a sprinkler. In the case of this customer they had an old style well.

Screen failed allowing in sand
Sand coming out of sprinkler

The screen had failed which allowed in sand. It is very white sand that comes from water bearing ground that is washed almost iridescent over the years. The options for this broken Perth water bore was to either redrill a spear into the existing well or drill a new submersible bore.

After assessment by our bore serviceman it was decide it was more economical to opt for a new modern submersible water bore. Our bore installation and service team at can help with any bore problem in Perth. Call us on 9246 0111 or you can book a bore service HERE .

New bore Wilson

Our Virgin Bores team have just finished installing a new submersible water bore in Wilson. This one we drilled to 19 metres at a newly completed house.

We backed the drilling rig truck up to the small perimeter wall and were able to drill “over” the slim high wall. The new bore is just behind the Virgin Bores sign on the other side of the wall. Note the small pile of sand resulting from drilling a 100mm diameter borehole to a depth of 19 metres. Water bearing ground was encountered at 5 metres.

Solenoid valves Wilson

Ready for retic in Wilson

This is pretty standard for Wilson. We installed a 1.5 horsepower (1.1 kilowatt) stainless steel submersible pump and Italian Sumoto motor. Included in this clients bore package was a 6 station Rainmaster reticulation controller. We then installed 4 solenoid valves in the ground and automated them. The 4 solenoid valves are pictured here adjacent to the actual borehead. The borehead was then covered over by a small green bore box and buried under the sand. The solenoid valves will be covered by valve covers for access if needed. Our bore electrician wired in the controller to auto start the bore pump and operate the solenoid valves.

Now a very easy job for the client to finish the reticulation sprinkler system. If we can help you with a bore or retic work in Wilson or surrounds please call us on 9246 0111 or visit Virgin Bores here

Our new installation arm Virgin Bores are drilling a new Water Bore in Nedlands tomorrow. The depth to water here in Florence Road is about 36 metres so we will drill to a total depth of 38 metres for plenty of water.
The garden bore will be equipped with a of 1.1 kilowatt submersible pump. Pretty standard for most Water Bores in Nedlands and Dalkeith. This will deliver about 90 litres per minute to the surface. Perfect for a typical Nedlands garden retic system. The small white vertical stake indicates where we will be drilling the bore. Alongside the brick wall is the 100mm PVC borecasing that will be installed permanently in the borehole. The bottom 6 metres of the casing is finely slotted to allow the water in. Around this we pack a fine layer of screened drillers gravel to act a s a permanent filter.

Here Virgin Bores are testing the flow from a recently drilled submersible water bore in Wembley Downs, a coastal suburb of Perth.

The bore was drilled and cased to a total depth of 30 metres, the static water table was at 17 metres and the submersible pump was hung at 23 metres, just above the slotted screen. This is an average depth for Wembley Downs.

It has just been wired up by the electrician and the home owner was excited to be fresh new bore water gush out on the first test pumping.
