This gem of a suburb is home to a high number of garden bores. Some homes in Floreat have an old style well bore in the back yard that feeds into the reticulation sprinkler system. Often, this beautiful design works in two sections: one system in the front yard and another for the rear.
Historic bores can be spotted by the tin well lids. These lids hide a centrifugal pump inside the concrete well liners. These well bores are noisy, they take up space in your garden and, after many decades of trusted service they can become a bother to repair and operate.
Some people find these old wells to be charming — others think they’re an eyesore! In modern times, the old wells are being replaced by sleeker, less obtrusive water bores that come equipped with reliable submersible pumps. These stainless steel pumps operate beneath the ground because they’re designed to work while they are submerged in water. These modern bores pump groundwater to the surface and into the Floreat homes reticulation sprinkler system. Chances are, you won’t even be able to tell that they’re there because they run so silently. As you approach a property, modern pumps are invisible.
