SandspearInstallation, Repair & Servicing
The Sandspear Man installs, repairs and services sandspears on the QLD coast from Sunshine Coast to Cairns. We also provide water divining services.
What is a
Sandspears are a type of bore used in shallow (less than 6m) unconfined aquifers.
The water volume is normally low (15-35lt/min) and is used mostly for domestic irrigation purposes.
A centrifugal pump is used to suck the water from below ground through the spear.
As water is pumped out, it is required that more water flows in to replace it.
For this reason spears will only work in sandy areas.
Cost for a complete spear:$2,500
Includes spear, pump, cover, all pipes and connections, and installation.
Problems for Sandspears
No water flow.
Stops water flow.
Too hard to dig through.
Unable to filter. Water unusable.
Installation is done by hand. We watch all material coming out of the hole to establish correct depth of spear. All holes are different.
We water divine your site first. If we don’t think there is water down there we won’t dig.
