Common bore pump repairs in Perth. What do you think is wrong?

Bore pumps have become a prominent device in thousands of domestic and industrial establishments in Perth, but certain technical issues cause them to lose their effectiveness, thus calling for bore pump repairs and replacement expenditures. A few common issues associated with bore pumps are as follows:

  • No power supply to the bore pump
  • No water flowing out of the bore
  • Irrigation is not properly connected to the bore
  • Potential faults in component parts
  • Poor installation and/or construction
  • Limited or no maintenance to the bore
  • Presence of blockages in the bore
  • Inconsistent water-pumping action
  • Lack of water pressure
  • Noisy equipment or machinery due to lack of lubrication between parts
  • Leakages in the bore, pump or pipes

How long do bore pump repairs take?

No matter how much care is taken, bore pumps will stop working properly at some point in time. Years of wear and tear may give rise to certain problems in bore pumps such as a dirty or reduced supply of water and degrading water quality. The state of the resource, condition of the pumping equipment and physical condition of the bore are common areas where people face problems.

Bore pump repairs become important when people start experiencing such problems. But the crucial part is to identify the real problem before plunging into repairs. People may land up spending a considerable amount of time and money on repairs which are irrelevant to the problem. But the time taken to repair bore pumps can differ greatly depending on the problem.

Identifying if your bore pump or irrigation controller is at fault

There may come times when your bore well provides poor-quality water or supplies insufficient water. There could be many reasons behind this, but the most obvious reason is a faulty bore pump or irrigation controller. The following are common faults in bore pumps:

  • Incorrect line voltage
  • Defective control box
  • Defective motor cable or winding
  • Little or no water supply
  • Faulty pressure switch
  • No power
  • Tank leakages
  • Low water level

Now, the bore pump is not always at fault. If any change in working is experienced on turning the system, it could also be due to a fault in the irrigation controller. Don’t worry, we can help replace irrigation control systems if deemed faulty after our inspection.

Benefits of functioning bores

Well-functioning bores and pumps not only maintain a smooth supply of clean water in domestic and commercial establishments but also provide a range of other benefits. In a city like Perth, where getting clean water is becoming more and more expensive, functioning bores can help families and corporations greatly. Here are a few benefits you are likely to get when bores are in a proper working condition:

  • Reduced water bills – Rising water bills is a pain for many families in Perth that are already burdened by inflationary patterns. Water bills rise not only because of an increase in consumption but also faulty equipment that cause water leakage. A well-functioning bore can prevent water leakage and lower your monthly water bills, thus putting less pressure on your family’s financial resources.
  • Gardens perform better with bore water – Due to the high level of nutrients found in bore water it provides an excellent source of food for plants in the garden. Unlike treated drinking water, which usually has been stripped of nutrients for human consumption, bore water still carries with it excellent nutrition value for your garden plants hence causing more vibrant and luscious plant-life.
  • Protects water resources – The rising demand for drinking water is putting excessive pressure on scarce water resources, proving a huge environmental cost on a global level. But functioning bores protect water resources by reducing wastage and utilising them optimally. In addition, they also ensure that ground-water level does not deplete due to excessive use.
  • Smooth flow of operations – Some industrial plants in Perth rely heavily on water for carrying out important processes. While treated water is good, it can prove a little expensive sometimes. But bore water can help them solve this issue and supply water continuously. This ensures that processes and operations in industrial plants flow as smoothly as possible.
  • Capable of filling pools and wider domestic use – In some areas, bore water can be used for filling pools, stock watering, flushing toilets, washing clothes or cars. However, it is extremely important to have this monitored by an accredited laboratory on a regular basis. That way you and your family can enjoy a full pool and all the other benefits all year round.
