Jeremy from Dianella phoned us this week saying that the pump on his old style bore well was tripping and was in need of repair.
Our specialist water bore electrician was the man for the job! There was one well liner and it was in the back yard. Most of the bores in the lower lying parts of Dianella are quite shallow. Some up on the hill can be very deep!
Although the three phase centrifugal pump motor tested OK there was a dead short between phases and the isolator had burnt out wiring.
Dave replaced the isolator and renewed all the wiring and the bore pump is working again.

Underneath this tin lid in a lovely Nedlands garden is an old style well. The ladder goes down about 15 metres to a pump. One of our specialist team diagnosed that the pump had failed.
Given the age and condition the best solution here is to start again with a new submersible bore and stainless steel pump. The garden will soon be enjoying fresh groundwater again.

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.
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 .
We are available to help out anytime. Today is a public holiday Monday and we were able to help out when Wayne called with a question about an old well south of the river. He rang us on 9246 0111.
Wayne has an old well style bore which is one liner deep. He had removed the sprinkler to flush out a line of accumulated debris. The pump was running but he wasn’t getting any water. Unfortunately he had run the pump at a flow higher than the bore could sustain. We explained to Wayne over the phone how to prime his “orange” pump and he was set to go. That was good news as he had just sold his house and needed his bore and retic working before settlement next week. He was going to get back to us if there were any further issues with his well.
