Borehole Test Pumping
Before a submersible pump can be installed in a borehole, a test pumping report is required to be able to determine the flow and the head of the pump.
320 Technologies has a complete test pumping unit to determine your borehole yield. Contact us for a quote and get the borehole yield determined
Pumping Tests are a very reliable method to attain information used to investigate and ascertain the hydraulic conductivity, transmissivity and storage coefficient of an aquifer and establishing the hydraulic behaviour of a well.
Conducting well and aquifer pumping tests are essential and allows us to determine:
- The catchment work’s operating yield by testing them at gradually increasing flow rates for a sufficient length of time
- The quality of the water and possible variations during pumping (physically, chemically, and bacteriologically speaking)
- The hydrodynamic properties of the aquifer in terms of permeability, transmissivity, radius of cone of depression, recovery, and storativity.
