As a resident of Medindie you would be well aware of the fact that your home most likely is sitting on top of a aquifer. If you live along Dutton Terrace there is an even stronger likelihood you will be on top of the aquifer. For many of the properties it is not a concern or an issue, but those properties with below ground level living areas, garages or swimming pools the aquifer here can be of some concern.
Having serviced the residents of these inner northern suburbs location of Adelaide for nearly 20 years we have gained some crucial knowledge that others who do not work in this location as often as we do. Properties which have habitable underground spaces will have a wet well which houses a submersible pump. In order to avoid flooding of these underground locations there must be a pump installed and these pumps run nearly 24 hours a day and 7 days of the week. If a fault ever occurs our plumbers will get a call to attend Medindie fast. The reason for such panic is that within a matter of a few hours the water will start to seep into these living quarters and could cause significant damage, not ideal!
Unfortunately due to the high levels of salinity contained in this water it is untapable for any good use. Many aquifers are connected to bores around Adelaide. In suburbs such as Glenelg North, Netherby and Unley Park you will see signs on homes saying bore water in use for gardening purposes. Unfortunately the high levels of salt make the water from the aquifer undrinkable and to harsh for irrigation purposes. With all this knowledge the only thing that can be done with the water is pump it out to sewer drainage systems. It seems such a shame because to the plain eye the water looks perfectly ok, but when tested in a laboratory it shows poor results!
