Electrical Problem with Bore Ballajura

“We have what appears to be an electrical problem with our garden bore at home and would like to arrange for someone to take a look at it”

No problems Paul. Dave our specialist bore electrician attended this job in Ballajura. Electrical tests showed the Sumoto submersible motor was “not fused” and the motor windings were intact but there was a complete dead short to earth.

Our tests revealed this Ballajura submersible bore had a dead short to earth and the submersible pump motor needed replacing.

We returned and replaced the submersible motor and start box. Now our Ballajura customer is ready for the warm summer months in Perth.

Perth Water Bore Drillers

Last week our water bore drilling  bore team at Virgin Bores, drilled a successful bore hole in for a customer in Applecross.

First the drillers back their rig onto an accessible area of the front lawn that the customer was happy with. Depending on the depth of the hole, the actual bore drilling normally takes less than half a day.

After drilling the bore is “air-developed” a process where compressed air is pumped down the borehole to clean the drilling muds and develop flow.

As you can see below in the pic of air developing a great result – lots of water and it looks crystal clear.

The submersible pump is normally installed the next day followed by the bore electrician and finally the reticulation connection if required.

We have been in business a long time and have vast experience in the Applecross area. We can repair your Applecross bore if there is an problem with your bore.
