Water bore for Parkwood

We have a client in Parkwood who is getting a modern submersible water bore. They live opposite this beautiful park.

It is 3 metres to groundwater and there is 22.5 metres of water at their Parkwood home. We will drill 16 to 22 metres and use a good quality stainless steel submersible pump and motor.

The new submersible water bore will replace the old style well with a tin lid that he dug and sludge pumped over 30 years ago (pictured below) These shallow old style wells are commonly seen in Parkwood, Ferndale and Lynwood area. We will replace old style well with a new water bore which is not visible from the surface.

We will install 100 ml slotted casing to the bottom 6 metres of the bore. We will pack the slotted casing with drillers gravel to enhance water filtration. We will also air develop. This is particularly important as the area has uncertain ground conditions and potential clays. We have drilled a number of bores in the Parkwood area and surrounds.

We also have teams repairing waterbores in the Parkwood and surrounding areas of Lynwood, Langford and Canning Vale and installing and repairing reticulation.

What is a solenoid valve?

We often get calls from customers who are having issues with their reticulation systems. One of the common problems is solenoid valve stuck open or faulty solenoid wiring.

This device is 24 volt and is normally underground. It’s purpose is help your reticulation system change from one station to another automatically.

In some cases customers are not aware of the location of their solenoid valves in their reticulation systems. We have reticulation repair specialists who use a cable locator to locate any missing solenoid valves or broken wires.

We are up for any retic challenge as illustrated here with this missing solenoid in Thornlie being found under this heavily rooted plant in the garden. We service Thornlie, Gosnells, Parkwood and nearby suburbs on a daily basis.

Call Troy on 9246 0111 for prompt service and repairs and keep your garden lush and beautiful over the summer months.
