An often overlooked step, Capacity testing is used to determine the maximum sustainable drawdown on the borehole and the dynamic stabilised water level too. This information is gathered over a period of hours and is useful information to both the user and the installer. It is required to accurately determine the pump and motor combination ensuring longevity of both the borehole and pumping unit.
During the process of capacity testing, water born particles, cuttings and silt are pumped out of the hole along with the water. This can prolong the life of your own wet end.
