Test Pumping

Test pumping a borehole is a controlled field experiment to assess:

 -
Yield of the borehole

 - Quality of the water (via sample collection)

 - Depth of the pump

 - Aquifer Performance

 


The two standard types of test pumping are:

 - For hand pump boreholes :
 3 hrs continuous at flat rate of 800 l/hr plus recovery;

  - For production boreholes: 3 steps of 90 minutes each, followed by 7
2 hrs continuous plus recovery up to 95% of the original water level.


 
Test pumping is extremely important, so any new and rehabilitated boreholes need this service. 

We can provide test pumping services for boreholes yielding up to 40,000 l/hr.
