This mornings job was another rebore, this time in Noranda.
The customer had been told by another contractor that their old bore could not be repaired. In addition that their pump was not repairable and they would need a new submersible bore installation.
We installed 100mm slotted PVC casing and a new 50mm Brass Alderdice Non Return Valve (NRV) that provided ample clean water.
We were able to strip the Stalker semi high lift pump and replace the gland packing.
The depth to water was 3.1m below the base of the 5 well liners.
The rebore was straightforward. We encountered Bassendean Sand: quartz sand (dunes).
The customer was up and running again at a fraction of the cost to install a new submersible bore. Ready to start watering when the sprinkler ban finishes at the end of August.
