BD Water drills water bores to the optimal depth to produce the best water output for the irrigation system requirements.
We strive to get a sustainable bore water supply, whether we drill a bore for Residential purposes into the Superficial aquifer, or into the rock grounds of the Perth Hills and Inland WA, or a deeper bore into the Confined Aquifers of Mirrabooka & Leederville.
Our water bore drillers are experienced in working with a variety of soil types, depth ranges, and are skilled in a full range of equipment, techniques, and methods for water bores Perth.
We can drill a garden bore in any depth and surface, from the fractured rock of the Perth Hills or the Perth bores in plane zones.
With in-house engineering and consultations with our bore drillers, we make sure everyone is in sync to achieve the best outcome. Whether the goal is to get a water bore, to install a bore pump, or to complete the full design and build of an irrigation system.
We make water simple. So, we handle water bores end to end.
We consider the location and scope of the project before we put the team of drillers and technicians together. Whether it is a Superficial, Mirrabooka or Leederville water bore, we have you covered.
Drilling Perth bores and installing submersible pumps in Western Australia doesn't have to be complicated, no matter the depth.
We are experienced in the water space. We offer professional water bore drilling and also the installation of a bore pump and reticulation system. Contact us for a quote.
We are happy to provide an obligation-free consultation to discuss your goals for the water bore and submersible pump. Contact us and we'll plan the best approach.
If required, we can integrate the bore pump installation and irrigation system mechanical and electrical connection, to make getting bore water even easier.
What our clients and drillers say about us.
In short - yes, if you have a water licence for more than 10,000 kL/a, and want to keep your full allocation (if you're not fully utilising your allocation, licence trading allows you to sell part or your full licence - more info on Licence Trading).
In some cases smaller allocations will also require a meter. Department of Water and Environmental Regulation has / will notify licensees where applicable.
Since 31 December 2020, all licences for 10,000 kL + require meters to have been installed on all drawpoints. If you have not installed a meter yet, please contact us or another provider ASAP.
We disconnect the existing system from the mains and simply change its water source to the new bore, connected by the piping system. The controller can be rewired to the new box. This is a simple turn-key solution that we carry out in most integration systems.
Depending on the depth of the drilling, the construction of the hole itself can take longer.
Generally, for the Standard Superficial Aquifer or the Perth Hills Fractures, it takes us one day to drill and construct the bore. We can arrange to get your pump installation and connection to irrigation system the next day. In all, the project takes about 2 days.
Bores into the Mirrabooka and Leederville Aquifers are a longer process, as they require a pilot bore so that a wireline log is conducted and sent to Department of Water and Environmental Regulation for their approval, before the final bore and construction can be finalised. In this case, the project takes about a week once the drilling itself commences.
It depends heavily on what you're looking to achieve with the bore and where you're drilling it.
Costing is generally worked out on a per meter basis, which will include drilling the bore, inserting the PVC casing and air developing of the bore until the water is clear of any muds.

Depths can vary depending on the area:
If your area is mapped by the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation, you can get a guide for what depth you should expect for the superficial aquifer. The water maps aren't always correct - we'll be happy to give you insights into drilling in your are that we gather from our drilling jobs in your area.

BD Water has all your water bore needs covered. We can construct Level 1 (Standard Superficial Aquifer and Perth Hills Fractures) and Level 2 (Confined; Mirrabooka and Leederville Aquifers) bores.
Drilling contractors generally specialise in a particular type of drilling and area, where they’re comfortable they’ll get the best results. That’s why we have multiple different rig set-ups and operators to ensure we can get the very best result in every situation.
All our drillers are licensed and some of the very best in the business.
You can otherwise look to engage a drilling service yourself. Unfortunately the quality of work varies greatly in this industry which can easily result in an undesired outcome. Be careful going for the cheapest service provider, as this can often result in a disappointing outcome when corners are cut and quotes are purposely underpriced to win the job.
This can vary heavily, mainly it depends on where you’re drilling and what aquifer you’re targeting.
As a general guide:
The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation offers a guide map with the expected depth of the water bodies present in specific locations. Some areas are unmapped, as there is not sufficient information to estimate the depth of the aquifers. In the Perth Hills, drilling is slightly different, as we are targetting a fracture between rock bodies, and not an aquifer, so this area is never mapped.
This map is only a guideline for the depth of the drilling. Our drillers take soil samples every 1-2 metres to ensure we drill to the optimal depth for the best producing bore, so the depth can only be exactly determined during the drilling.
