In previous times bores in the more elevated sections of  Joondalup were simply unaffordable. However our modern bore drilling methods have made Joondalup bores more affordable. Water boring is now highly mechanised and most Joondalup bores are drilled in a day.

Modern water bores – Joondalup and surrounds, are essentially a cylindrical stainless steel submersible pump inserted in to a 100mm PVC sleeve or bore casing that has been drilled (bored) in to the ground, typically 12 metres into the water table. The pump is submersed under water inside this casing deep beneath the ground.  The submersible bore pump silently and efficiently pumps water to the surface. Normally the bore is connected in to a home owners automatic reticulation sprinkler system.

This new submersible bore is being joined to an existing reticulation system.

Virgin Bores can easily tell you the depth to water at your property from data derived from the Perth Groundwater Atlas and from our considerable Joondalup water boring experience. This enables us to give a written quote in advance of any work. The cost of Joondalup bores varies significantly and is fundamentally governed by how elevated the home is. Higher above sea level means deeper to water and more cost.

Bores in Heathridge, Currambine, Edgewater, Joondalup, Beldon and surrounds typically vary in depth from 18 metres to 55 metres. It is mainly dependent on the properties height above seal level. Over towards Tapping, Banksia Grove, Mariginiup bores are typically drilled to the mid level of this range, whilst in Sinagra they can get as deep as 75 metres.
