Submersible Bore Pump Replacement Carramar

If your bore pump needs replacing and you live in Carramar or the surrounding suburbs of Wanneroo, Joondalup or Neerabup we can help you on 9246 0111.

Replace Water Bore Pump Perth

Submersible pumps are very reliable and normally don’t require any pre-emptive maintenance or repair. However, on occasion, they may be susceptible to lighting induction or fusion. It is best to get a specialist bore pump technician or electrician to repair or replace your submersible pump. It will save time and money when you do the job properly. We can also advise on whether any bore pump motor damage may be covered in your household insurance if you have fusion coverage.

Replace Water Bore Pump Carramar

Here we are replacing a 1.1 kW single phase submersible pump in the Perth suburb of Carramar. We also replaced 28 metres of downhole electrical cable with special rubberized bore cable and stainless steel draw wire in this 34 metre deep Carramar garden water bore.

Our specialist bore electrician will then return to install a junction box and test. Once the pump is up and running we will connect back to the reticulation and make sure all is OK.

Crystal Clear Bore Water

“That’s the good part of it…that’s your bore water”

Virgin Bore’s most experienced driller, George, is always pleased to see the first rush of bore water after drilling a water bore. Virgin Bores is always happy to deliver a plentiful supply of crystal clear water for their Perth customers.

Immediately after drilling a garden bore to the required depth, the bore is air developed as seen here. Even before the submersible pump is installed. Most garden bores drilled in Perth are drilled by the rotary mud method.

 

 

To clean out the drilling muds and “fines” we pump compressed air down inside the bore casing. At this stage air alone forces the groundwater up to the surface.

If you are considering a water bore and live in the greater Perth metropolitan area call on 9246 0111 or get a BORE QUOTE HERE

Supply and Install Tap and PRV

Tap and PRV Brabham 

Virgin Water Bores recently drilled, cased, developed and gravel packed a 18 metre submersible bore in the Perth suburb of Brabham.

A .75 kW submersible motor was used for the Brabham water bore.

In the next few days after the drilling the electrician and reticulation team connect the new water bore to existing reticulation and bore box.

Repair Shared Bore Ocean Reef

Driving around Perth at the moment you will see people back in their front yards pottering, weeding and checking their water bore and reticulation sprinklers.

David in Ocean Reef has a shared modern Sumoto submersible water bore with his neighbour.

He called us on 9246 0111 when his bore was not starting on his side but his neighbours was working. They have a Sumoto submersible pump.

We sent out our specialist bore electrician, Dave.

Drill Water Bore in Driveway

When we are called to a Perth home to repair a water bore, we need to know that location of the water bore hole.

It is great when the home owner knows the location of their water bore. If the home owner has bought a home with a bore they may not know.

The modern submersible water bores have a green lid which can we covered with lawn, garden bed or as you see here aggregate or liquid limestone in a driveway. The water bore is normally drilled in a drive way if there is tight access for the drilling rig in the garden and lawn of the home.

Adam will cut the bore casing down to below ground level then install the submersible pump and green bore box over the top. Once our electrician has connected it up and we connect to reticulation the paving or the driveway cut out will be put back and everything tidied up.

It is worth noting that it is the old-style wells that come with a tin lid that looks like a witches hat.

So if you are buying a house with a water bore get as many details as you can about the bore like location and depth so that if your water bore needs repair you can call us on 9246 0111 and we can do the best job possible.

Repair Root Damage Water Bore Perth

Roots are never a water bores friend. We think these are probably ficus roots.

They certainly cause a problem if incorrect bore construction allows them to get inside bore casing taking the easiest route to water.

When we were called to service this Perth water bore we found a different type of root damage. Here the surface roots had strangled the old conduit carrying the 240 v cabling to the bore, interrupting the power supply.

We are up for the challenge when you call us to repair your Perth water bore.

Our specialist bore service electrician located and fixed the problem getting the bore up and running in short time. No wonder this bore had been tripping the circuit breaker. Call us for any Perth bore repairs 92460111 or book a bore repair here
