Repair water bore Como

We work for many real estate agents in Perth servicing and maintaining the water bores for their rental properties. We are sent a maintenance work order when a water bore isn’t working and we liaise with the tenants to repair the water bore.

Como Bore Fixed

We were asked last week to get our electrician to check a bore at a rental property in Como. The electrics were fine but it was not pumping water. Dave had to search around this corner block and eventually found a conduit and pump cable going to ground in the carport. He uncovered the tell-tale green lid of a submersible bore.

He found there was no water at the top of the bore head. We returned and winched up the submersible pump and replaced some blown poly.

Flat retic controller battery

Some detective work by Dave uncovered that the mains power had gone off and the reticulation controller had auto reset for 10 minutes into all stations and the pump had been dead-heading. Non existent  stations had been turning on the pump with nowhere for the water to go. This had caused the poly rising main to blow near the submersible pump. All caused because the back up battery had been flat and not preserved the program memory. We replaced the flat 9 volt retic controller battery for new. We also looped out the unused stations to prevent this happening again.

Both the tenant and the property owner are happy and the water bore at the Como property is up and running. If your water bore or retic system needs repair or service in the Como or South Perth area call Troy on 9246 0111 or book a bore service here
