There are several elevated Perth suburbs require a deep submersible water bore.

One of those suburbs is Doubleview. For this Doubleview customer we drilled to 58 metres through mainly limestone and sand. The water bore is connected to existing reticulation and the electrical connections have already been done. In this case we are consolidating the client’s two existing controllers into one. This is because we have far more flow from the bore.  A small rectangular green plastic lid will be place over the hole and it will be covered in grass.

We have installed a 1.5 kw stainless-steel submersible pump which is delivering about 80 litres a minute.

Some other parts of the Perth metropolitan area that require deep submersible water bores are near the water tower in City Beach, the elevated parts of Kardinya and Sinagra near Wanneroo.

Our drilling teams at Virgin Water Bores are very experienced in drilling deep submersible water bores. If you are in an elevated position and would like to save money with a water bore give us a call on 9246 0111 or find more information about deep water bores on our webiste HERE

New submersible motor and pump Doubleview

A Doubleview customer sent us this picture of his submersible pump and 3 phase motor. He and his electrician had pulled it out of his very old 32 metre submersible bore hole. They had disassembled it and electrically tested the motor.

The motor needed replacing. We attended and replaced the motor and while we were at it a new submersible pump. We replaced all down hole electrical cable which we heat shrunk to the new motor lead. We also replaced his old frayed stainless steel draw-wire but reused the existing 40 mm poly rising mainline that delivers the water. The poly pipe was all good even after several decades of service. At the same time we dosed the bore with 20 litres of chlorine to help kill the iron oxide bacteria that was evident.

Finished off with a new bore box at the bore head, reconnected and all set to go. Most Doubleview water bores are in the 30 to 60 metre deep range as a consequence of Doubleview’s elevation. If you have any questions call our team on 9246 0111.

Deep Bore in Wembley Downs

Virgin Bores has just drilled a deep new submersible water bore in Wembley Downs 9246 0111.

By Perth metropolitan area standards it was very deep at 62 metres. The house is on top of the hill near the water tower. We know in advance how far we have to drill as we look at the depth to water in the Perth Groundwater Atlas on the Department of Water website HERE

Pictured here is a trailer mounted air compressor. We use this via the roll of pipe seen on the back of the truck to pump compressed air down the newly drilled bore. This is called “air developing” and flushes the introduced drilling muds out of the borehole and helps develop water flow from the superficial aquifer before we install the submersible pump.

Once we drill a water bore we can design a new retic system if needed and will look after our clients ongoing needs to service their bore and retic in the Wembley, Wembley Downs, City Beach and Doubleview areas.
