Bore Cleaning in Perth – Problems and Solutions
Bore wells in Perth can get a few problems over time that can all cause issues for a system. Each of them is treated slightly differently.
Our most common bore cleaning customer. Slightly different than iron in solution, Iron bacteria is an infection the well can get that creates a thick rusty slime that coates the screen, pump, water intake, pipes and blocks sprinklers. If left unchecked gets worse and worse until it either blocks the water intake in through the screen or the pump intake. The next inevitability with this is that the motor will burn out. We highly recommend you treat this before putting another pump down.
Bore pumps need water running through them when they operate otherwise, like a car without coolant, the motor overheats and burns out.
Once an infection is taking over, dropping another pump into it will quickly get it covered and will once again burn out. You rarely get rid of an iron bacteria infection, you can dimish it down to a fraction of a percent of where it was so it is all visibly clean and then set up a maintenance plan that you can enact withouth our help if you wish. We will air develop the well and install a set up on the output that can be used by you to cycle treatment on a maintenance plan to keep the bacteria down.
Iron In Solution
General iron in water doesn’t often cause too many headaches if it is not a bacteria infection but the staining can be a problem as can some build up if it’s been in a long time. Air developing a well and cleaning up a pump may help if the screen is getting constricted and installing an inline iron stain removal treatment may be economical if the iron is not in too high concentrations.
Sediment In The Well
If there is a lot of sediment in the well usually caused by works at the top filling the well up then we can air develop it and clean out what may be several meters of sand at the bottom, bringing the well to good as new status. Alternatively there can be damage to an old style of screen and sand is getting pulled through.
