Advantages to installing a bore in the Perth metro area -

  • Save Water & Money - the average Perth household uses around 40% of it’s water consumption on watering lawns & gardens. Investing in a bore will reduce your yearly water bill significantly as well as helping to conserve Perth’s precious drinking water.

  • Better nutrients for your garden - scheme water has been treated for drinking purposes whereas bore water contains natural minerals from the earth which your lawn & plants with love.

Do I need a license?

Your average Perth metro household does not require a license or permit to install a bore on the property.

What type of pump do I need?

Submersible pumps are generally used in today’s bores and can be either single phase or three phase. We stock and recommend Lowara Pumps which have a stainless steel structure ensuring a high resistance to corrosion with a built in non-return valve and cable guard attachment. The upper and lower supports are made of precision-cast stainless steel. The hexagonal pump shaft guarantees an effective impeller drive. Their abrasion resistant construction combined with floating impellers ensure optimum resistance to wear making this one of the best pumps on the market for sand handling capabilities (pictured below).
