Fused Submersible bore Pump Perth

This is not exactly what Tom expected when he winched out a fused submersible bore pump in Bassendean.

The organic mass is a root mass. We think whoever drilled the original bore possibly configured it with slotted bore casing above the static water level causing fibrous root ingress chasing an easy route to water.

We replaced the pump and made the client aware he may have future root problems

Don’t forget many household insurance policies have fusion cover for electric bore pump motors. We can advise you when you call us on 9246 0111.

If your submersible pump is not working it may be fused. Call us on 9246 0111 and we can work out the problem and send the right person for the job. If you would like to read more on pump repair and fusion in Perth https://virginbores.com.au/perth-bore-pump-motor-repair-and-service/

New water bore Southern River

We are going to be drilling at this property in Southern River. We have a lot of experience in the area and can be contacted on 9246 0111.

We have drilled a lot of water bores in the Southern River area and know the conditions well. The depth to water at this property in 4.3 metres and we would drill 18 to 20 metres into water.  The ground conditions in Southern River can vary with interspersed layers of clay which can inhibit ground water. For this reason we often allow extra slotted casing, extra gravel packing and extra air developing to help compensate.

We would use a good quality Italian stainless steel pump, a 1.1 kw motor coupled to a 12 stage wet end.

We attend the property to talk to our client about their requirements and about where to drill their water bore. We aim to drill close to the metre box to minimise costs to the client. Pictured is where we are looking at drilling at this property.

We also service and repair water bores, bore pumps and reticulation systems in Southern River and surrounds including Piara Waters.

If you are in the Southern River or Piara Waters and would like to discuss a water bore for your home call David on 9246 0111 or look at our website HERE.

New submersible bore Bedford

 

We service and repair centrifugal bore pumps in old wells as well as new submersible pumps.

Not often do we find on old bore well in the Perth metropolitan area that is set in such an idyllic back yard as this one in Bedord.

It is actually inside a chicken coop surrounded by contented chickens. After years of faithful service and watering a bountiful vegetable garden it is finally beyond economical repair.

This old style well is in chicken coop.

It is a 35 foot climb down a ladder inside the concrete well liners to the pump. Beneath the pump is a 49 foot spear. Unfortunately the bore is pumping sand indicating the spear has collapsed. This old bore is quite deep for Beford, as the house is at the top of a hill.

The best solution here is to drill a new submersible bore on the front lawn and install a new submersible pump on the front lawn to match the flow required by the existing reticulation system.

Girrawheen Water Bores

 

Today we were busy talking to customers about water bores and water bore repairs on 9246 0111.

Water bore Girrawheen in driveway

We just completed drilling a new submersible bore in Girrawheen. This bore was drilled to 42 metres deep and because of access restrictions for our drilling rig we drilled this bore in the driveway. Once the submersible pump is installed only a small access hatch will be visible that can be driven on.

We have drilled in Girrawheen and surrounding suburbs for many years so have an excellent knowledge of the ground conditions.

Girrawheen water bores are mostly in the 25 to 50 metres deep range.

Out of interest – “On 26 June 1970, the Shire gazetted the name “Girrawheen”, meaning “place of flowers” or “the place where flowers grow” in an Eastern States Aboriginal language, possibly that of the Kambuwal people in southeastern Queensland” (source: Wikipedia)

Submersible Water Bore Myaree

What is under here? A modern submersible water bore that is saving the householder money. Unlike the old well type water bores with the large tin lids, this water bore is not conspicuous and runs silently.

This submersible water bore was drilled recently by our drilling team at the home of a customer in Myaree, a southern Perth suburb. The bore lid was finished flush with a new aggregate driveway. We generally drill in lawns or gardens but here there was no other possible place to drill.

Submersible Bore LOST IN PERTH

Submersible bore Perth
Just uncovered a Nedlands submersible bore

We often get calls from Perth customers who know they have a submersible bore but have no idea where it is. They bought the house long after the submersible bore was drilled and no-one knows where the bore is let alone what they are looking for. This adjacent pic shows a  submersible borehead we just uncovered in Nedlands. If the bore was installed in the last 20 years or so there will typically be a green lid just under the lawn like this one. Sometimes they are even flush with the lawn and visible. The lid normally conceals a box that is about 435 x 300 x 305mm as seen to the right. Older than 20 years and sometimes it is a small concrete lid on a concrete box of similar size.
