Bore and Well Testing

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

       

The Clearbore product used by Aqua West to clean iron oxide from pumps is one of the leading water bore and water pump cleaners available on the market today. It is safe, simple to use and completely bio-degradable. It contains no chlorine, hydrochloric acid, copper or cupric solutions which is essential when using water on farms and for residential premises especially when it is for crops and for human consumption.



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 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.
Aquawest has the solution to this problem with Clearbore. Clearbore will dissolve the blockage and simply and easily allow the pump to return to normal operation within hours. Clearbore can be utilised to dissolve the iron build-up in reticulation systems.
