Last week our water bore drilling team drilled a water bore in a very difficult to access site in Cottesloe.

The front wall had already been built and there was no other way to back our drilling rig onto the property as the carport extended out to the footpath. We backed our drilling rig up to the low front wall so the platform overhung it. We then jack hammered out the footing of the wall and then drilled our 20 metre deep water bore in the raised garden bed.

With the mild salinity concerns in Cottesloe we are always cautious not to drill too deep here. The fresher water is less dense then the more saline water and consequently ‘floats’ on top.

New water bore Trigg


We have drilled many water bores in the Perth coastal suburb of Trigg. Call 9246 0111.

This 44 metre submersible water bore was drilled in 4 or 5 hours and produced beautiful crystal clear Trigg ground water. It was drilled in the driveway.

This video gives you a good idea of what is involved in having a new water bore drilled at your home.

We are expert in drilling modern submersible water bores in coastal suburbs that will save you money.

There are total sprinkler bans in winter in Perth. If you have a bore you are able to run the bore forĀ 2 minute per station (zone) a week for maintenance reasons. This is good not only for the bore, but also for the reticulation system solenoid valves. Any maintenance testing must be carried out between 6pm and 9am on your allocated watering day.

As of the first of September, Perth bore owners are allowed to use their bore on their allocated watering days. For this bore it is Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. When you have a modern submersible bore you are able to water three days a week (households with scheme water can only water 2 days a week). The Water Corporation website can help you with your watering days which are based on house numbers.

In September this year there was a total rainfall for Perth of 76mm with 8 days straight of zero rainfall. Please keep an eye on the rainfall and put your reticulation on ‘rain’ if there is some wet weather on the horizon.
