No one wants to move into a new home and discover a short while later that they don’t have the water they need or the well on the property needs to be upgraded costing additional dollars.
Wellmaster Pumps and Water Systems Ltd. provides a Water Well test service for potential home buyers. With the seller’s approval, we will pump the well for a period of 2 hours to estimate the wells ability to provide a reliable flow of water. If the well were to run dry in that time the pump will be stopped and a staged inflow test will begin. This staged inflow test will determine the well's recovery rate and from that we can advise on the well’s capability to provide enough water for the house.
Along with the pump test, we will visually inspect all the surface equipment, check the well pump motor for amp draw and continuity. If requested a water analysis will be conducted to check for bacteria and mineral levels. A written report will be supplied with observations and recommendations for you to better make your decisions.
It is important to note that a well flow test is simply a picture in time of the well's performance on that day. Environmental and Geological events can and do affect a well's ability to supply water.
