Install Tap & Pressure Release Valve on Water Bore

We recently drilled a modern submersible water bore in the Perth suburb of Waikiki.

Subsequently Jack attended to connect the bore to the client’s exsisting reticulation system and disconnect from mains water. He then installed a tap and pressure release valve for our Waikiki client. A tap using bore water is useful and it is also usually high volume.

You can see the PRV in this picture on the vertical PVC piping of the tap. The PRV is a safeguard against ‘deadheading’ the bore pump.

“The team at Virgin Bores were simply fantastic and good people to deal with. 

From David, who made the quote process painless and kept us informed along the way, to the drilling crews and Craig the electrician – they are genuine people who care about their work and obviously felt a lot of loyalty and respect for the company. When things got a little stressful towards the end, Troy came through with great communication and responsiveness. 

Highly recommend this family feel company”

Drilling Rig Perth

Drilling new Water Bore Perth

Green access lids at the top of submersible water bores.

We drill modern submersible water bores in the Perth metro area from 18 metres and as deep as 40 metres.

Drilling the submersible water bore normally takes about a day and as you see here the top of the bore is covered by a green access lid just surface level of the ground so it can then be covered by lawn. Invisible!

We can also drill in a driveway and cover.

Important to keep a record of where the water bore is located just in case it needs repair in the future.

Automate Old Bore Perth

We are presently automating the reticulation systems in two adjacent Duncraig homes.

They share an old style bore which had been operated by a manual switch. So far we have installed a separate automatic reticulation controller on each property and are replacing the old manual gate valves with automatic solenoid valves (3 solenoids on one property and 5 on the other).

The retic system at one house hadn’t been used for 20 years so fingers crossed when we give it a well overdue service and some TLC!

We are up for a challenge,

If you need help automating your old style well or modern submersible water bore call Troy on 9246 0111.

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/

Marmion submersible water bore

 

​​This week we are drilling a new submersible water bore in Marmion.

The team normally make an early start. This video was taken at 8am and they had already drilled 20 metres of a 29 metre submersible water bore in Marmion.

The water table was reached at 18 metres. This submersible garden bore is for a new house and access restrictions mean we are drilling at the very front edge of the as yet unlaid sloping driveway.

We specialise in coastal suburbs like Marmion, Hillarys, North Beach and Trigg. We also service and repair water bores in Perth’s coastal suburbs. Get in touch if you would like a new water bore HERE  or phone David on 9246 0111

Water bore Cloverdale

 

We have installed a submersible pump in a 20 metre bore in the front yard of a new house being built in Cloverdale.

We installed a 1.1 kilowatt submersible pump and the owner will connect to a new reticulation system in their new Cloverdale home.

Hard to imagine that we have thousands of these pumps up to 70 metres below ground all around Perth.

This Cloverdale water bore will be under the driveway in this southern Perth suburb near the airport.

If you would like to consider a water bore in the Cloverdale area call  9246 0111 or find out more on a new water bore here Virgin Water Bores
