A well assessment is an easy verification of the condition of a well. It quickly determines a wells ability to supply the required amount of water to support the occupants of a home or facility. This assessment includes a well inspection and/or a well recovery test.
A complete well inspection will verify the structural integrity of the well and its components and includes: identification of the well location, inspection of the well cap and well casing, drainage to and from the well, assessment of the well pump and pressure tank, assessment of additional well on the property, etc.
A well recovery test involves pumping water out of a well and then giving it time to recharge. This can help you determine how much water you can draw from the well. A well should be able to pump 14 L/min (3.6gpm) for 120 minutes or 450 L/person/day (119 gallons/person/day).
We can also assist you with the retrieval of your Water Well Record. A well record will generally include: location of the well, date of well drilling, depth and diameter of well, static water level, pumping water level, recommended pumping rate and the recommended pump setting.
