You will see many old style wells with a tin lid around Perth. Many are up to 70 years old and some have been dug by the home owner in the ’50’s and ’60’s.
My father dug the well for our family home in Applecross and it is still working.
Many older Perth well style bores still giving faithful service after years of pumping bore water to the garden. Our specialist service team can keep them ticking over with a few industry tricks, priming solutions and centrifugal pump replacements.
Call us on 9246 0111 and we will talk you through the repair of your water bore well style or book a bore service HERE
Sadly though sometimes they are beyond economical repair and need to be “retired”. The best solution can be replacing with a modern submersible bore. Submersible bores have a small green lid which is usually ‘hidden’ under the lawn or garden. Submersible pumps are silent and very economical.
Call Virgin Bores to discuss a new submersible bore for your home and ask us how will it work, how long it will take and how economical will it be. Want to get an idea of cost for a new water bore at your house click HERE
We are going to be drilling at this property in Southern River. We have a lot of experience in the area and can be contacted on 9246 0111.
We have drilled a lot of water bores in the Southern River area and know the conditions well. The depth to water at this property in 4.3 metres and we would drill 18 to 20 metres into water. The ground conditions in Southern River can vary with interspersed layers of clay which can inhibit ground water. For this reason we often allow extra slotted casing, extra gravel packing and extra air developing to help compensate.
We would use a good quality Italian stainless steel pump, a 1.1 kw motor coupled to a 12 stage wet end.
We attend the property to talk to our client about their requirements and about where to drill their water bore. We aim to drill close to the metre box to minimise costs to the client. Pictured is where we are looking at drilling at this property.
We also service and repair water bores, bore pumps and reticulation systems in Southern River and surrounds including Piara Waters.
If you are in the Southern River or Piara Waters and would like to discuss a water bore for your home call David on 9246 0111 or look at our website HERE.
