Bore Testing

Aquawest provide service work for all bore pumps including diagnosing faults, pull ups and repairs.

Bore & Well Testing

The primary use of test bore holes is to provide the client with a 24 hour testing system which offers crucial information on how much water will be yielded over a period of time.

Water from bores is a valuable resource and contributes significantly to your water requirements. Bore water can be used for domestic users as well as stock water and irrigation.

Bore testing is essential to protect any investment in a system dependent on the capacity of a bore to meet long-term demand. Along with sourcing a sustainable water flow rate, bore testing also assists with correct pump selection, ensuring the right equipment is used to extract water from the source.

Bore water usually does not require treatment providing it:

  • Has a pH greater than 5
  • Colourless and odourless
  • Usage is only for watering gardens, washing vehicles and flushing toilets

If bore water is your drinking source, Aquawest can offer water analysis, testing for pollutants and chemicals that may have contaminated the water supply through DELTAwater.

It is not always possible to tell if your bore water is contaminated.

Signs of contamination may include:

  • unusual taste
  • a low pH (acidic water)
  • a chemical, sewage, petrol or ‘rotten egg’ smell
  • soap suds/foaming around sprinkler outlets
  • abnormal colour or sediment
  • dying or wilting plants
  • animals reluctant to drink

Bore and Well blockages can also occur, caused by the interaction of dissolved iron and iron-related bacteria. In the past, such blockages have led to damaged pumps beyond repair often needing replacement or closure of the bore.
