Submersible bore pump electrical

When a submersible pump is assembled one of the most critical thing to get  right is the electrical connection that will spend its life under water.  Our specialist bore electrician Dave will get it right – 9246 0111. 

Most submersible water bores in Perth have this underwater connection done using a  heat shrink kit. The submersible motor has a factory installed “blue lead”  which is connected to the electrical cable that will come all the way up from the pump to the bore head at the surface.

Seen here is the factory lead first being crimped to the electrical cable and then the waterproof heat shrink kit is applied. These are a series of sleeves which are essentially  shrunk over the cable joins provided a waterproof connection.

A separate stainless steel cable holds the weight of the submersible pump so
no stress is placed on this electrical joint. Sometimes in old submersible bores incorrectly joined electrical cables can be a source of trouble. Our  bore electricians are well equipped to diagnose and repair any electrical
problem you may have with your bore or pump.

For repair or installation or replacement of submersible pumps in any Perth suburb call us on 9246 0111 or Troy on 0408 454 130. Further info about our Perth submersible water bore services and drilling of new bores can be found here.

Quote for submersible water bore Leeming

 

Today we called to see a customer to discuss a new submersible water bore for their home in Leeming 9246 0111.

After nearly 20 years in the business we have done hundreds of bores in Leeming, Willeton, Bullcreek, Canning Vale and Murdoch areas. Today’s bore is to be connected to an existing reticulation system already fed by mains water. Our client will happily save hundreds of dollars in annual water costs.

The submersible pump will produce about double the flow of mains water. Often we do new submersible bores in Leeming that replace the old well with centrifugal pumps. Then we would install a 2.2 KW submersible pump to match flow from the old pump.

Use of water bores during winter sprinkler bans

Winter sprinkler bans are in place across Perth from June 1 to August 31.

This includes owners of domestic water bores. However bore owners are allowed to flush irrigation systems once a week on their rostered watering days, either before 9am or after 6pm, for about 2 minutes per station during winter. This helps keep not only the bore in working order but exercises both the solenoid valves and the sprinklers in the reticulation system.

During winter if you have an issue with your modern submersible bore or reticulation system it is a great time to call as we are not as busy and wait times are less.

Hand watering is permitted during the ban and customers can apply for an exemption for new lawns.
