Repair Water Bore Northern Suburbs

If you have a problem with a submersible bore pump in the northern suburbs we offer fast repairs.

We have been repairing water bores in the northern suburbs of Perth for nearly 20 years in suburbs like Balga, Ballajura, Mirrabooka across to Craigie, Mullaloo and Heathridge.

If you call us on 9246 0111 – we will try and identify the likely problem over the phone. You might be lucky and we get you up and running with just a few bore troubleshooting tips or we can then send the right person out to repair your modern submersible water bore.

Our electrician will provide swift diagnosis of all bore electrical problems. Tripping circuit breaker? Retic controller not working? Pump starting but no water? We work on all brands of bore pumps including Grundfos, Lowara, Davey, Onga, Sumoto, Universal and Franklin to name just a few.

Just under the lawn is often the top of a submersible bore. In this pic the green lid has been removed. As you can see the modern submersible water bores are ‘hidden’ under the surface of the lawn or garden until repairs are needed.

Submersible Bore Pump Shaft Broken

We had an unusual service call yesterday  (9246 0111) about a submersible bore pump that was producing only about 25% of the water that it normally delivered.

We ruled out all the normal things like a hole in the poly rising main, pump wasn’t running backwards, none of the “normal” causes.???  When we winched the submersible pump to the surface we found the shaft joining the motor to the “wet-end” (pump) seemed OK but on uncoupling the submersible pump we noted inconsistencies. Found the shaft had sheared actually inside the pump leaving the first 4 of 12 impellers still turning. Quite an uncommon fault.

Further detective work found the unusual auto start device had been turning the pump on/off, on/off incessantly contributing to the failure. Replaced the pump and installed it all back down the borehole with the original motor. Tested and all good now!
