Bore not working Bassendean

Earlier this month our specialist bore electrician went to a client’s home in Bassendean to test a three phase centrifugal pump motor. It was reported that the bore was not working.

The pump was running but there was no water. It was a 2 liner well on the right hand side of the driveway.

Old Bore Well Needs Repair Dianella

Jeremy from Dianella phoned us this week saying that the pump on his old style bore well was tripping and was in need of repair.

Our specialist water bore electrician was the man for the job! There was one well liner and it was in the back yard. Most of the bores in the lower lying parts of Dianella are quite shallow. Some up on the hill can be very deep!

The isolation switch on the side of this bore well was faulty.

Although the three phase centrifugal pump motor tested OK there was a dead short between phases and the isolator had burnt out wiring.

Dave replaced the isolator and renewed all the wiring and the bore pump is working again.
