Water bore North Beach

George and the drilling team did a great job getting the drilling rig positioned at this job in North Beach.

The team drilled a 30 metre modern submersible water bore for this North Beach customer and got a plentiful supply of crystal clear water.

Difficult access on a sloping driveway drilling into a small walled garden bed. Way to go George!

All was tidied up and just the 100 mm bore casing left sticking out of the ground and a small pile of drilling waste sand on the verge.

Next we will cut down the bore casing to under the surface level and install the submersible pump.

If you have been at home and been thinking about a water bore, now is a great time. Call us on 9246 0111.

Wanneroo Water Bore

Russell is one of our specialist drillers for shallower water bores in the greater Perth metropolitan area.

He and his team take a lot of pride in their work so they were pretty pleased with the ‘gusher’ they drilled in Wanneroo recently.

Water Bore in Wanneroo

Wanneroo is generally pretty shallow for a water bore and the bore pictured was 18 metres deep with the bore pump set at 10 metres.

The moment of truth is before even the pump is installed when compressed air is forced down the borehole to develop up and prove the supply.

Gravel Packing Water Bore

 

To safeguard the construction of a modern submersible water bore in the Perth metropolitan area water bores should be gravel packed. Read more about gravel packing water bores HERE

To help keep sands and silts out of a modern domestic water bore we use driller’s gravel. Gravel packing a modern submersible water bore is an important part of good bore construction.

We will be drilling a new submersible water bore for this front yard in Aubin Grove. We visited to check out where we are going locate the water bore (pictured).

Location of water bore Aubin Grove property

We have drilled many water bores in Aubin Grove area and know the groundwater in the area well. The start of water bearing ground is about 5.5 metres below this block.

We will drill this customer an 18 metre modern submersible water bore. The new water bore would be concealed beneath the lawn and covered by a small rectangular green lid.

The bore will be drilled by a modern and powerful rotary mud drilling rig.

Our client works in IT and is going to interface the single phase bore pump start box to be automatically controlled by his fully programmable “open source” reticulation controller that he imported from the USA.

Drilling water bore in driveway

We installed a new submersible water bore for a client who knew there would be problems with access for the water bore drilling rig. All suburbs 9246 0111. 

We couldn’t use any of our portable or smaller drilling rigs because the ground was mainly limestone. We knew from experience the limestone would go all the way down to his required depth of 28 metres and it needed the power of our truck mounted drilling rigs to be drilled successfully.

Tight access drilling
Neat hole in drive way ready for bore drilling

There were large brick walls around the entire property so the only option was to drill the bore in his driveway. Normally a simple job to drill a bore in a driveway if it is paving. Then we simply lift pavers, drill the bore, install and connect the submersible pump and then replace the pavers. But this driveway was poured aggregate. Customer was determined to get a bore. Solution…we arranged a contractor to cut a neat circular hole in the aggregate driveway.

We preserved the circular cut out. After bore drilling and installation this same cut out plug shown here was put back as the lid over our bore box. 

It was a very neat solution. Ring us with your Perth water boring challenge on 9246 0111 or read more about getting a modern submersible water bore here.

Girrawheen Water Bores

 

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

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)
