Rusty Bore Covers Can Kill

A bore cover can take 20 years to slowly rust to the point where a person stepping on it will fall straight through. The fall can easily be deadly. Unfortunately it is likely to be children who like to play on such an interesting object. With 170 000 Bores throughout the Perth Metro area there are highly likely to be home owners unaware of the danger. The council check pool fencing and the electricity wires but not bore covers.

There is also a real risk to household pets. Pets are just as vulnerable to falling through dangerously rusted bore covers.
There is a significant number of bores in the front yard of properties and the almost all are unsecured. If the public knew how deep many of these bore holes are they would be terrified. I have visited many properties delivering bore covers and some are so deep you cannot see the bottom. Even in the same suburb there are shallow and deep bores.

How Do I Measure My Bore Size

For a Traditional Cover
To measure the size of the bore cover use a tape measure and measure the distance across the concrete liner. You need to measure from the outside of the concrete liner to the outside of the other side.

For a Flat Cover
We need you to measure the outside diameter which is the distance from the outside of the concrete liner to the outside of the other side and the Inside diameter which is the distance from the inside of one side to the inside of the opposite side.

It is a good idea to measure this diameter in 2 directions because some of the old liners are bigger on one side.

Do not do this if you believe there is any chance you may fall in to the well. Do not send children to do this task.
