One of the reasons is the bores in the area are generally quite shallow and so you don’t have to drill very far to get to water. This is particularly so to the east of the suburb and the northern edges closer to Burke Drive. The exceptions include the more elevated parts peaking near the T junction of Stock Road and Ledbroke Street.

When you drill a bore in Attadale the surface geology is “Tamala Limestone: Aeolian calcarenite, variably lithified, leached quartz sand “ as indicated by the Perth Groundwater Atlas. This geology is relatively easy to drill and therefore quite affordable. The exceptions include the more elevated parts peaking near the T junction of Stock Road and Ledbroke Street where significantly greater depth is required.

It is a good idea to install a water bore. They tap into a plentiful superficial aquifer and save you money by cutting your mains water consumption. Importantly they also help conserve Perth’s limited potable water supply.

The stainless steel submersible pump for the water bore is installed invisibly beneath your garden. There is no longer the unsightly tin lids of the old fashioned wells. It is commonly 18 metres to water in Attadale or thereabouts and in the eastern parts of the suburb it is often as little as 4 to 6 metres.

The depth to water for an Attadale water bore available on the Perth Groundwater Atlas.  We would drill 10 to 12 metres past the start of the superficial aquifer. We have drilled many bores in the Attadale, Bicton and suburbs abutting the swan river. If the property is close to the river near Burke Drive special precautions need to be considered to minimize the chances of the bore becoming salty.

The submersible pumps you get these days are  silent and invisible. We usually connect the bore to existing reticulation. So when you are standing on your front lawn nothing will be visible. Everything, including the pump, is contained in a 100mm PVC sleeve or bore-casing. At the surface there is a flat green bore lid which is usually hidden by lawn or garden mulch.
