Well Flow Test

A well flow test shows the gallons per minute (GPM) of recovery in the well. This is important to determine the flow of water that the well can support. A well flow test is good information to let home buyers know what kind of expansions or landscaping they may be able to install in the future.

A well flow test will first determine the static water level at your Berkshire County, MA area home or business. Once the static water level has been determined, pumping begins; while water is being pumped out of the well, the water level will drop. The level it drops to is called the pumping level, and the distance between the static level and the pumping level is the drawdown. A flow test is intended to determine the flow of water in to the well at the time of the test.

The well flow test does not guarantee or indicate the condition of the well or its related components. All wells vary in performance and are affected by underground aquifer conditions, equipment, weather and climate conditions. Seasonal variations are not uncommon and can affect the ability of the well to produce water, especially in a drought period.

The well pressure tank, well head, control box, pump, filters and all other components above ground at your Berkshire County, MA area home or business will be inspected and their condition recorded.
