What is Bore Water
1

Bore water is an underground water that’s been accessed through drilling a bore through underground aquifers or water storages, then pumping the water into the surface. These aquifers may sometimes contain micro-organisms and chemicals that can potentially be harmful. Some of these chemicals are natural and are usually present in rocks and soils, while some are due to contamination.

Using Existing Water Bores

There are a lot of water bores in South Australia and they are usually used for livestock watering, irrigation, and as well as clothes washing. They are also deemed safe for watering edible plants, filling in swimming pools, cooking, and even drinking.

In general, the water quality should first be assessed by the Australian and New Zealand Guidelines for Fresh and Marine Water quality, and Australian Drinking Water Guidelines for everyone’s safety.

Testing the Water Quality

Over time, the quality of bore water may change. That’s why it is best to check every couple of years after the initial analysis to ensure that the water is monitored properly. For shallower groundwater, it is best to frequently test the water for everyone’s safety.

Deciding on Location

The first thing that you need to check is to decide on your location. There are different factors to consider before you have a bore installed. It is best to check if there are any septic tank nearby, as well as waste disposal and industrial use lands.

There are also physical features that you should consider as these features can lead to contamination, including installation at the gully’s bottom where the run-off surface could submerge it or the path of installation leads to a stormwater drain.

Permits and Approvals

Of course before the bore water’s construction, permits and approvals should be obtained. Certain locations in Australia may provide temporary or permanent restriction on new bore water wells.

It is also required for a licensed water bore drilling company to install the bore. You can apply for the permit through the Department for Environment and Water.

Water Bore Pump Maintenance
1
Routine maintenance of a bore pump is important so you can check for leaks and other issues that needs repair and services. There is a broad range of water pumps, from submersible pumps to the traditional water bore pumps, and regular maintenance is important to ensure that the system works as intended. Bore pump maintenance will ensure sure that your water is safe to be used for drinking, cooking, and even for watering your houseplants and edible plants.

Sealing the Area

Maintain a bore water by sealing the area between the surrounding ground and casing using concrete to avoid surface water or rain from carrying contaminants into the bore water well. The casing should measure at least 30 centimeter above the ground to avoid the weeds from obscuring the pump head’s view. If there are any cables or hoses down the shaft, it is best to seal between their cases. 

Protecting the Bore Water Well 

It is best that the wellhead and pump should be under a covered area or a shed to help protect the cap. If you have an unused well, it is best to protect it as well from anything so you can use it in the future if you decide on utilizing it. 

Avoid compost, animals, fertiliser, pesticides, and rubbish away from the wellhead. According to experts, it is best to have a 10 meter exclusion zone to keep your bore water well safe. Avoid spraying herbicide or any chemical around the bore because spraying can increase contamination. 

Installing a Back-Flow Preventer

If you want your hose feeding to be a stock through to avoid any contaminated water from flowing back into your home supply, having a back-flow preventer would be best. 

Checking the Wellhead

It is best to regularly check the wellhead’s security regularly. Any ground or earthquake movements can damage the wellhead, that is why checking it regularly after every even is ideal. 

Flushing the Pressure Tank

Regularly flush the pressure tank to help remove any sediments while also ensuring that the tank has enough air in the water tank. Having a tank with too little air means your pump is running more frequently than intended, which can cause wear on the pump and costing you more in power bills. 

You may also have a bladder tank, which is usually designed to be maintenance free. If your pump is tuning off and on, then you may actually have a bladder tank. Usually a bladder tank has a tiny hole which needs replacing.

Hiring a Professional Contractor

Every 10 years or more, it would be best to hire a professional contractor to help you flush out the water bore. Sediments and corrodes usually start building up around the bore, which can reduce the water’s flow rate until it can’t pump anymore; this means that the bore has already run dry. 

If you live in a geothermal area, you should be more cautious about checking the surrounding area and your bore itself. You need to watch our for are that are heating up nearby, usually a dying vegetation can be your first clue. Check for corrosions regularly as this is also very important in maintaining your bore water well.
