Virgin Bores are local experts in Balcatta, Osborne Park and Stirling areas. We have drilled many bores in the area and we also repair and replace water bores and submersible and centrifugal bore pumps. It is quite possible we have drilled a submersible water bore or repaired the “well” style water bore in your street.
If you live in Balcatta, Osborne Park or Stirling generally the depth to groundwater is fairly shallow. Typically a submersible Balcatta bore would be drilled between 18 and 30 metres.
In some more elevated positions or exceptional ground conditions you may need a deeper bores. The ground geology in Balcatta means it is relatively easy drilling conditions. The Perth Groundwater Atlas commonly indicates “ Tamala Limestone: Aeolian calcarenite, variably lithified, leached quartz sand” for water bores Balcatta and surrounds. Salinity is mostly between the 0 to 1000 ppm range.
This is all great news if you live in Balcatta and you are considering a water bore.

The submersible water bore that Virgin Bores installs will be invisible beneath the garden. Installing a garden bore is actually friendly to the environment using Perth’s plentiful superficial aquifer. This helps conserve our mains water supply and you save money as well. Bonus!
The modern bore, including the pump, is contained in a tube that is called bore-casing and it is drilled into the ground. Mostly the water bore is connected to an existing reticulation sprinkler system.
In many of these older suburbs there are “well” style water bores. In Balcatta, Osborne Park and parts of Nollamara there are many of the early type concrete well liner bores in the front gardens.
Virgin Bores have valuable local experience working on these old bores. Faced with any problem with an old centrifugal or submersible pump or water bore, Balcatta and surrounding suburbs residents should contact the Virgin Bores Balcatta service team on 1300 734 300
