It’s that time of year again where everyone is starting to use their bore pump.
An efficiently operating bore saves money. Poor construction, installation and maintenance of bores increases the cost of pumping groundwater and the chances of pump failure. Our Bore Specialist team recommend the following to protect your Investment:
• Maintain the pump according to the manufacturer's specifications. It’s not recommended that you have any electrical components in connection with metal bore casing as this can cause corrosion.• Measure the depth to the water level in the bore several times a year. The best time to measure is immediately before you turn the pump on and again before you turn the pump off.
• Groundwater levels can go up and down during the course of a year. Checking the start-up water level of the bore before pumping is started. Continually falling start up levels can affect the operation of the pump. The depth of the pump, and perhaps the pump itself, may have to be changed or replaced to keep the bore working properly.• Check the shut off level of the water in the bore immediately before the pump is shut-off. Continually falling shut-off levels can mean the screen or slots that allow water into the casing or perhaps the casing itself is becoming clogged. Our Bore Specialist Team can provide advice on cleaning out your bore and keeping it running efficiently.
• Regular testing, maintenance and servicing of your bore will not only protect your investment but ensure the water you are pumping will keep your gardens another large investment looking lush all year round.
