If your bore or pump has stopped working Virgin Bores will fix it if anyone can. Perth metro wide. That’s what our service team and our bore electricians do every day!
It would help us to know if your bore is –
Old Style? the old well style with concrete liners and typically a tin “witches hat” sty lid with a bore pump that is visible when you lift the lid? Does the pump start yet no water? (so probably a priming issue or check valve problem in which case we send our bore serviceman) or does the bore pump not start at all ? (in which case we send our bore specialist electrician who will repair if simple electrical problem or test and certify the bore pump motor as fused- possibly then the subject of an insurance claim )
New Submersible Type? a modern bore with submersible pump. Typically you would see nothing at the surface as the small bore lid is under the lawn or maybe
you’ll see a small A4 size green plastic or grey cement lid. We are equipped with winches to pull submersible bore pumps to the surface if necessary.
If you don’t know where your submersible bore is, no worries, we can advise on how you may be able to find it yourself or we can send a serviceman with locating equipment.
Insurance fusion repairs are our specialty. We replace fused bore pump motors promptly all over Perth.
Perhaps your bore pump is continuing to run after the reticulation system has run through its full cycle? Not a problem, just turn it off and call us pronto!
Bore doesn’t seem to have the pressure or flow it used to?
Maybe your water bore pump has tripped the circuit-breaker labelled “pump” or “bore” that should be found in the meter-box. Give us a call and we will send a bore specialist electrician.
Perhaps you suspect it is something to do with your reticulation controller not starting the bore? Whatever the problem, if it is fixable we can fix it.

Not a problem, we can send a service-man with a special cable tracing wand to locate them. Designed to help find broken field wires or solenoid valves this specialist valve locating tool does the trick in most circumstances. Can also be used to find lost submersible bores.
automation of existing systems?
Virgin Bores are Perth’s experts on automating existing water bores and reticulation sytems. If your
bore sprinkler system is currently operated manually with an on / off switch we can easliy fit a fully automatic reticulation controller and interface it to start your bore. Commonly this involves our electrician fitting a 24 volt start relay or contactor to the existing 3 phase DOL ( Direct Online Starter) or single phase start box. Where you may currently switch from one section to another by manual gate valves or taps we can install automatic solenoid valves. Compliance with your rostered water days then becomes automatic.
Reticulation controllers ( timers ) are powered by mains power 240v but have a battery back up so that even in the event of a power failure the programmed memory is retained. This allows you to leave the property for extended periods safe in the knowledge that your irrigation system is programmed to come on automatically.
