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.

If you live in Wanneroo and would like to save money and have the best garden in the street call us on 9246 0111.

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.

Water Bore Booragoon

We drilled a modern submersible water bore in this beautiful garden in the southern Perth suburb of Booragoon.

Our drilling team drilled and cased this bore and the next day Adam returned to lower the pump done the hole as illustrated in this video.

Subsequently our specialist bore electrician will return to connect the bore.

We drill and repair water bores in the area of Booragoon and surrounding suburbs of Myaree, Melville, Mount Pleasant and Applecross.

Water Bore Repair Floreat

This week our specialist bore electrician, Dave, called on a customer in Floreat reporting their submersible motor was tripping the circuit breaker in the meter box.

Dave found the one horsepower 2 wire submersible motor was not fused and the windings appeared intact but there was a complete dead short to earth.

The retic controller turned on the 2 wire submersible bore via a 24v relay in this Floreat bore

At a minimum the submersible motor needed replacing but given the age of the unit it was decided to replace the wet-end (pump) as well and down hole electrical cable and stainless steel draw wire. Our submersible pump installer, Adam, will attend and install the new pump and motor and cables down the bore hole. There was no electrical junction box at the bore head so in this case Dave will return and one will be added for easier servicing in the future.

Dave  found the bore head under a hedge  near the letterbox.  nice detective work Dave!

Well done Dave finding the submersible bore under that hedge,

It was great we were able to help with repair to this Floreat water bore so the garden would be ready for summer.

Information on Winter Sprinkler Bans

Tomorrow (June 1 2018)  you need to turn off your reticulation and water bore for the winter sprinkler bans. This involves households, businesses and councils in Perth, Mandurah and parts of the South-West and Great Southern.

Anyone who uses sprinklers from June to August risks a $100 fine.

Retic ban in Perth in Winter
Winter sprinkler Swutch-off in Perth from June 1 to August 31

Bore water users are allowed to flush sprinkler systems once a week on their normal rostered watering days, either before 9am or after 6pm, for 2 minutes per station to maintenance test their bore. Hand watering is permitted when needed. If you have just installed a new lawn you can apply for a new lawn exemption HERE

Any questions about the Winter Sprinkler Switch-Off can be answered at this Water Corporation website

Water Minister Dave Kelly reminded us that the switch-off saved about five billion litres of scheme water in winter 2017, enough water to fill up Optus Stadium five times.

Winter is a great time to consider a domestic water bore so you and your garden are ready for summer. Waiting times are shorter. Call us on 9246 0111 or go to our website HERE.

 

Repair or Install Water Bore Perth’s Coastal Suburbs

Pictured is the bore start box for a submersible water bore at a home in the coastal Perth suburb of Trigg.

There was an existing reticulation system at this home in Trigg when new water bore was drilled. The reticulation system was disconnected from mains water near the water metre. The retic controller was on a back wall of the house and was wired to send a 24V start signal to this bore start box.

The bore start box is located next to the electrical meter box next to the front door.

We have been in the water boring business for nearly 20 years and can install and repair your water bore. We have the experience and the knowledge to work out what is wrong with your water bore if it needs repair.

Perth Shared Water Bore 

Joe, our bore and reticulation man, has been busy.  He is connecting a neighbour to an existing submersible water bore in the northern Perth suburb of Pearsall. If you are interested in sharing a water bore with your neighbour call us on 9246 0111

With a shared water bore each house can use its own reticulation controller to run the submersible pump on their own watering days.

Joe disconnected the reticulation system of the neighbour and this is generally done at the master solenoid valves. For further information on a shared water bore in Perth click HERE for more information.

If you and your neighbour are interested in a shared Water Bore call us on 9246 0111.

We also specialise in bore repair and would be happy to assist you with any issues you may be having with a broken bore. Call us and we can be in your driveway to sort out your bore repair or fix your reticulation.

Bore Automation Perth

We are automating an old bore in the southern Perth suburb of Shoalwater.

As pictured it is an old style well with a tin lid.

The sprinkler system is currently manually operated with five inground gate valves. This is common with these older style Perth water bores.

We will replace manual valves with 24  V solenoid valves which will be wired into a new reticulation controller. Our electrician will do the interface to start the bore automatically via a 24 V relay.

We do this type of Perth bore automation quite regularly with single station bore automations from as low as $750.

If you are in Perth and we can help you with a bore automation check out our website HERE or call one of our team on 9246 0111
