This week we got a call to our Perth bore service team from a customer in Ballajura.
He said he switched his submersible water bore on and the box on the wall made a noise, the bore stopped and smoke started coming out of the box.
Our bore electrician attended and, as suspected, the start capacitor had blown.
The capacitor was quite burnt as evidenced in these pictures. This one was a 40 micrtofarad start run capacitor operating a 1.1kw submersible Sumoto pump motor.
Our electrician replaced the capacitor for the Ballajura customer from stock we carry in the van. The electrician also fixed the affected connections and this Ballajura water bore was up and running again with the customer all smiles.

We told you recently about a new submersible bore we were drilling in Wembley near Lake Monger.
It was drilled successfully resulting in beautiful and clear water. Pictured is the new submersible bore before it is covered. The submersible bore green lid is only 400 mm by 300 mm. This was drilled to 25 metres, a common depth for a Perth Bore. It was drilled by our installation arm, Virgin Bores, to replace an old well that had failed. If you would like a quote for a new submersible water bore 9246 0111.
It is covered over with soil and lawn so it is completely invisible. However it is important that the home owner keeps a record of where the bore is for future access.
We often get calls from Perth customers who know they have a submersible bore but have no idea where it is. They bought the house long after the submersible bore was drilled and no-one knows where the bore is let alone what they are looking for. This adjacent pic shows a submersible borehead we just uncovered in Nedlands. If the bore was installed in the last 20 years or so there will typically be a green lid just under the lawn like this one. Sometimes they are even flush with the lawn and visible. The lid normally conceals a box that is about 435 x 300 x 305mm as seen to the right. Older than 20 years and sometimes it is a small concrete lid on a concrete box of similar size.
