Bore Water Treatment

Self Diagnosis

 

Perth has the same predictable bore water quality issues. Use these questions to self-diagnose your bore water problem.

Bore Water Quality

If you answered yes to any of those questions, the most likely cause is your bore water is untreated or your existing bore water treatment system is failing. We are water specialists that do everything from stain removal to installing and maintaining sophisticated water treatment systems.

Bore water is increasingly becoming a popular option for homes in Perth. We work with bore hole drillers, home owners, private business and government bodies to raise their bore water up to what they need.

 Regardless of size, the same fundamental laws of water apply to each project which means we have been able to perfect the process of bore water treatment. Our water technicians are able to do fast and accurate price estimates simply by knowing your location and what you intend on using your bore water for.

Across the Swan Coastal Plain, there are only two consistent water problems that affect our bore water: iron staining and salinity. 

Use the information below to guide yourself through a self diagnosis and pricing estimation.

Potable Water

After rebalancing and treating bore water correctly it has a water profile similar to mineral water, making it remarkably healthy. The resulting water is safe for consumption within homes.

Services & solutions:

  • Water conditioning
  • Ionisation
  • Full water treatment 
Water salinity in perth

Salinity

Salt slowly kills plants by stopping them from absorbing nutrients and minerals. Salt encrusts leaves and infiltrates their root systems from below.

Services & solutions:

  • Water conditioning
  • Ionisation
  • Fertigation
Iron Treatment systems Perth

Iron Staining

Iron and calcium are the minerals that cause this visible stain on surfaces which are watered with untreated bore water sprayed on by sprinklers.

Services & solutions:

  • Stain removal
  • Water treatment
  • Subsurface drip irrigation installation

Common Contaminants

Across Perth there are hotspot for naturally occuring water contaminants. Most are easily diagnosed;

Orange stained walls indicate too much iron.

Blue and green staining indicates copper.

Dying or wilting plants that are watered often indicate too much soil salinity.

Perth’s Water Corporation has a technical page that explains these contaminants and how to treat them. 

Salty Water Treatment

If left untreated, plants wilt and die as salt builds up on their leaves and in their roots. A crust will form that stops plants absorbing nutrients that they need to grow and stay healthy.

Salt water is easily treatable as the problem only comes from two places. The ocean and river or from ground water. Unfortunately this is another of Perth’s common water issues that arises from being a coastal city. 

We have fixed the problem of high salinity concentrations across Perth at many high profile coastal homes, schools and public areas.

Perth’s Underground Water Source 

Perth’s has three water aquifers. The Leederville and Yarragadee are not for residential bore use. These shallow, unconfined aquifers are the body of water that many homes bores are tapped into. The quality and quantity of the unconfined aquifer is variable; for example borewater in Mt Claremont has high levels of calcium and iron, borewater near the Swan River in Applecross is quite salty; while areas like Kensington has crystal clear borewater that you can easily use for drinking water (Potable Water).

Water Corporation maintains the mass provision of water across Perth under its Integrated Water Supply Scheme (IWSS) Under this scheme water is taken from underground aquafiers, desalination plants and reservoirs, it is then treated with ultra violent light, filtration systems and mixed with chemicals such as chlorine and fluoride.

Water Corporation treatment systems for your Scheme Water removes the bad impurities in the water AND the good nutrients.

Borewater enables residents to reduce their water bill if they use it for garden irrigation and control the nutrients in the water if consumed at home.
