Install Tap & Pressure Release Valve on Water Bore

We recently drilled a modern submersible water bore in the Perth suburb of Waikiki.

Subsequently Jack attended to connect the bore to the client’s exsisting reticulation system and disconnect from mains water. He then installed a tap and pressure release valve for our Waikiki client. A tap using bore water is useful and it is also usually high volume.

You can see the PRV in this picture on the vertical PVC piping of the tap. The PRV is a safeguard against ‘deadheading’ the bore pump.

Burnt Capacitor City Beach

One of our customers in City Beach was reporting low pressure on his garden bore

We sent our reticulation guy who said it is popping the overload and it was working when he first got there,

So we sent our electrician who found the capacitor in the start box had melted as you can see in this picture.

So he swapped the capacitor and the relay and all is working.

Can I get a tap for my Garden Bore?

The answer is YES.

If you have a submersible water bore in your garden we can install a tap that runs off your bore. A tap from a water bore commonly has very high volume that is great for hand watering during hot Perth summers.

Five Star Google Review

“The team at Virgin Bores were simply fantastic and good people to deal with. 

From David, who made the quote process painless and kept us informed along the way, to the drilling crews and Craig the electrician – they are genuine people who care about their work and obviously felt a lot of loyalty and respect for the company. When things got a little stressful towards the end, Troy came through with great communication and responsiveness. 

Highly recommend this family feel company”

Drilling Rig Perth

Drilling new Water Bore Perth

Green access lids at the top of submersible water bores.

We drill modern submersible water bores in the Perth metro area from 18 metres and as deep as 40 metres.

Drilling the submersible water bore normally takes about a day and as you see here the top of the bore is covered by a green access lid just surface level of the ground so it can then be covered by lawn. Invisible!

We can also drill in a driveway and cover.

Important to keep a record of where the water bore is located just in case it needs repair in the future.

Automate Old Bore Perth

We are presently automating the reticulation systems in two adjacent Duncraig homes.

They share an old style bore which had been operated by a manual switch. So far we have installed a separate automatic reticulation controller on each property and are replacing the old manual gate valves with automatic solenoid valves (3 solenoids on one property and 5 on the other).

The retic system at one house hadn’t been used for 20 years so fingers crossed when we give it a well overdue service and some TLC!

We are up for a challenge,

Can I have a garden tap with my submersible water bore?

Most commonly Perth water bores are connected to the clients existing reticulation. We are able to install a manual tap if requested. The bore tap is usually high pressure and can be used for hand watering and numbers of other things.

People need to realise its only irrigation quality water, not “tap” drinking quality water from the scheme.

Handy bore tap

Can I have a tap from my bore? Sure you can.

We have installed 2 bore taps this week.

Above, Tom installed a brass tap and pressure release valve to this new 22 metre deep submersible bore we just drilled in Morley.

Tom also installed another one to this new 29 metre submersible bore we just completed in Quinns Rocks(above). We install a larger than normal tap to fit a bigger 20mm hose to accommodate the extra flow from a bore.

If we can help you call us on 9246 0111.

Repair and Maintain Old Wells Perth

 

We look after this old style well in the Southern Perth suburb of Applecross hidden in the large back yard of a quarter acre block.

Applecross old style well

The old well was dug in the 1950’s and has 4 concrete well liners with a three horsepower pump at the bottom of the well.

It has a hydro indexing valve which is very usual to see in a Perth reticulation system. Even the curious magpie has stopped to have a look. 

Fimco Hydro Indexing Valve seen at front of picture 

The system uses 2 zones one at the front and one at the rear. Instead of solenoid valves it uses the hydro indexing valves to change from one zone to another each time the system is turned on.

These larger blocks in older suburbs provide a place for children to play and a safe haven for birds and wild-life.

We have had twenty years experience repairing old wells in Applecross and the surrounding Perth suburbs of Ardross and Mount Pleasant. Call us on 9246 0111 or check out our website HERE
