Buying a home? Have your water tested with Claverack Pump Service before any purchase, a valuable resource for real estate agents and home buyers. Avoid surprises as to your well flow and water quality. A well flow test is also 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 show the gallons per minute of recovery in the well. This is important to determine the flow of water the well can support.
A well flow test will first determine the static water level. 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 guaranty the well, or indicate the condition of the well or 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.
Pressure tank, well head, control box, pump, filters and all other components above ground will be inspected and their condition recorded. State standards and codes must be met, and, if any maintenance is required it will be made known to the customer. A report on all items inspected will be provided.
All well water that is used for domestic use should be tested for E-coli and Coliform Bacteria. We also do FHA & VA loan testing, part V's, and much more.

Standard treatment for sanitizing your well system is shock chlorination.
Shock chlorination is the most widely recommended means of treating bacterial contamination in domestic water system.
Shock chlorination is NOT a recommended method for treating recurring bacteria problems. The source(s) of such contamination should be identified and eliminated. An option is to install a continuous disinfection treatment system.
