Submersible bore Balcatta

We are going to drill a submersible water bore for this client in Balcatta. We have been drilling water bores for homes in Perth for nearly 20 years. To discuss a water bore for Balcatta call us on 9246 0111.

We will be drilling to 28 metres.  Modern submersible water bores operate silently and are not visible from the surface covered by a small rectangular plastic lid.

The client has an existing old style well with a tin lid.  We have done the service and repair on the old well for many years for this long time customer and it has finally given up the ghost. The old well was in the back yard so we will be taking down a panel of fencing so we can use the existing electrical to save the Balcatta customer money.

If you would like a quote for a water bore we can design a new submersible water bore around your needs. Call us on 92460111 or if you would like free water at the flick of a switch check this out  HERE

It is 3 metres to groundwater and there is 22.5 metres of water at their Parkwood home. We will drill 16 to 22 metres and use a good quality stainless steel submersible pump and motor.

The new submersible water bore will replace the old style well with a tin lid that he dug and sludge pumped over 30 years ago (pictured below) These shallow old style wells are commonly seen in Parkwood, Ferndale and Lynwood area. We will replace old style well with a new water bore which is not visible from the surface.

We will install 100 ml slotted casing to the bottom 6 metres of the bore. We will pack the slotted casing with drillers gravel to enhance water filtration. We will also air develop. This is particularly important as the area has uncertain ground conditions and potential clays. We have drilled a number of bores in the Parkwood area and surrounds.

We also have teams repairing waterbores in the Parkwood and surrounding areas of Lynwood, Langford and Canning Vale and installing and repairing reticulation.

Fix old well Nedlands?

We do see some picturesque scenes in some beautiful Perth gardens.

Underneath this tin lid in a lovely Nedlands garden is an old style well. The ladder goes down about 15 metres to a pump. One of our specialist team diagnosed that the pump had failed.

Given the age and condition the best solution here is to start again with a new submersible bore and stainless steel pump. The garden will soon be enjoying fresh groundwater again.

If you have an old style well with a tin lid in Nedlands or the surrounding areas of Dalkeith, Mosman Park or Cottesloe and would like to talk about the costs of a new submersible water bore call David on 9246 0111.
