Old Bore Pump Details

no comments

This photo was taken 4m down a dark and damp bore shaft, comprising concrete well liners.

The bore and centrifugal pump (shown) is about 30 years old; and the bore was not working. The owner has lost all information on pump type, casing type, bore depth. So when it comes to fixing this bore, its a major problem. The owner could have saved time and effort if he had kept details as part of the “Bore construction record”. Refer to Guideline for choosing a bore contractor.
