Water Bore Repairs & Installation

Climate change affects everyone. Whether we like it or not, over the last 50 years, there has been a  massive decline in the amount of rain water reaching Perth’s dams. Perth’s dry conditions can be disastrous for your garden without proper watering.  With mounting water bills, it is not surprising that Western Australia is moving towards Bore Water Systems (40% of household water is typically used on irrigation systems). 

 

Bore water used in combination with the right water wise reticulation system is how you can make savings and conserve precious water. A properly installed bore water system and ongoing maintenance is however key to the success of bore water systems.  Regularly checking your water quality (salinity and pH), pump’s operation and water levels will also extend the lifetime of your system.

  • The installation of a new bore system
  • Upgrading an existing domestic garden bore system.
  • The installation and maintenance of both centrifugal and submersible bore pumps.

Frequently asked questions about Bore water systems

Where does Perth’s drinking water come from?

Supply of water is getting lower every year. 43% of the potable water used in Perth today is from seawater desalination, 39% is from groundwater, 15% from dams and 3% comes from groundwater replenishment. Water is a precious resource that is fading fast.

 

Where can I find out where to drill to install a garden bore?

You can use the Perth groundwater map to determine where and how deep to drill to install your bore system.

 

So what is a Bore Water System?

A Bore water system or Garden Bore system is the use of water collected and stored underground in the superficial Aquifer for irrigating gardens and lawns. Submersible or centrifugal pumps are used to move the water to the surface.

 

Do I need a Groundwater licence to use bore water?

You generally do not need a license for residential bore water systems as long as you are irrigating less than 2000㎡ of garden and lawn.

 

Can I use bore water other than to water my garden?

Using bore water to supply your household has various other advantages besides watering the garden. These include: car washing, laundry, toilet flushing or filling your swimming pool. However, the use of untreated groundwater is very dependent on its quality.

 

How do I ensure that my bore system works properly?

  • Regular maintenance of the reticulation system will contribute to the proper running of your bore system.
  • Ensure that the bore’s headworks (usually made of pvc) are protected from prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light.
  • Check for broken sprinklers, leaking pipes and faulty solenoid valves. These need to be repaired as soon as possible to avoid further issues.
  • It is essential that you run your reticulation system during the winter sprinkler switch off to keep your pump in good working order.
  • Contact an endorsed Waterwise Garden Irrigator like Beyond Reticulation to help you with all irrigation and bore maintenance and repairs. Visit: waterwiseprograms.com.au
 

 What are the watering days for bore water users?

Garden bore users in Perth can water either before 9am or after 6pm 3 days per week based on the last digit of their street number.

 

Can I test my bore water system during the winter ban?

Bore testing in the metro area is allowed on your allocated watering days even during the winter sprinkler switch off period. You are only allowed to do so once a week on one of your allocated watering days, either before 9am or after 6pm for a maximum of 2 minutes per station.

 

What are the benefits of Bore Water systems?

  • Reduce your dependence on scheme water
  • Way more affordable than using mains water.
  • Long Term Investment
  • Potential increase of your property’s value
  • Your gardens can be watered 3 times a week instead of only twice as per the Department of Water Regulations.
 

Are bore pumps covered under house and contents insurance?

Most home and contents insurance will cover the cost of replacing your bore water pump if the damage is due to fusion or burnt out motor. We however highly recommend that you check your insurance policy or contact your insurance company directly.  Our bore technicians can supply you with a detailed report to facilitate your insurance claim process.
