Replace Water Bore Pump Perth
Submersible pumps are very reliable and normally don’t require any pre-emptive maintenance or repair. However, on occasion, they may be susceptible to lighting induction or fusion. It is best to get a specialist bore pump technician or electrician to repair or replace your submersible pump. It will save time and money when you do the job properly. We can also advise on whether any bore pump motor damage may be covered in your household insurance if you have fusion coverage.
Replace Water Bore Pump Carramar
Here we are replacing a 1.1 kW single phase submersible pump in the Perth suburb of Carramar. We also replaced 28 metres of downhole electrical cable with special rubberized bore cable and stainless steel draw wire in this 34 metre deep Carramar garden water bore.
Our specialist bore electrician will then return to install a junction box and test. Once the pump is up and running we will connect back to the reticulation and make sure all is OK.

“That’s the good part of it…that’s your bore water”
Virgin Bore’s most experienced driller, George, is always pleased to see the first rush of bore water after drilling a water bore. Virgin Bores is always happy to deliver a plentiful supply of crystal clear water for their Perth customers.
Immediately after drilling a garden bore to the required depth, the bore is air developed as seen here. Even before the submersible pump is installed. Most garden bores drilled in Perth are drilled by the rotary mud method.
To clean out the drilling muds and “fines” we pump compressed air down inside the bore casing. At this stage air alone forces the groundwater up to the surface.

One of our jobs this week was from a customer in Noranda whose tripping centrifugal pump motor needed repair.
We sent Dave our specialist bore electrician who tested the single phase Lowara pump motor. It tested OK.
On further investtigation he found the 50mF capacitor was faulty so replaced it with a new 45mF capacitor. He replaced the 9V battery for new in the controller.
Why is it important to replace the 9V battery in the reticulation controller?
Retic controllers have batteries to preserve the memory that has been programmed in the event of a mains power fail.
The battery is normally only 9 volts and does not have the power to operate solenoid valves or pump start relays. Solenoid valves and most other irrigation devices operate on 24 volts. Most retic controllers are 240 volt mains powered with a transformer that steps down to 24 volt to operate the individual irrigation devices. It may seem like a minor inconvenience if you have a flat 9 volt battery in your controller as at first glance one would think it is not a big issue if you lose mains power and the controller has to be reprogrammed.
BUT it can have nasty consequences if the controller operates a bore.
If mains power is lost to quite a few brands of reticulation controllers and there is no back up battery then when mains power is restored the controller resets all programming to factory default which is often 10 minutes per station per day. This may then turn the bore on to stations that don’t exist and the pump runs with nowhere for the water to go. This can damage the pump or pipe work of the bore.
Old Style Well in Noranda is repaired
Dave reprogrammed the controller for the customer for their watering days of Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.
The Noranda customer’s old style well is repaired and they have water.
