Well Test - was: energy bills - you wont believe this/Kelsey/Angie
I realized later that you and I were talking about 2
different tests. YOU meant a water test - showing
bacteria, iron, and other minerals in the water. I
meant what they called a "Well Test" which sets the
rate of water flow at a certain rate and lets the well
pump for 45 mins. If it goes for the full 45 minutes,
it passes. If it stops sooner, it fails the "well
Mine failed. It pumped for a half an hour. I
think it's because the pump is very old. It is a
submersible and was installed in 1960. They are
supposed to last for 10 years though some have lasted
as long as 25. So I think the well test failed
because of the pump, but then someone else on the list
mentioned wells needing to be redrilled. Therefore, I
am wondering if that is more likely or is the pump
being so old the more likely cause of the failure of
the well test. THAT'S what I was wondering.
Sometimes e-mail is a very hard way to communicate.
But, if anyone knows the answer to this, I'd sure
appreciate hearing it.
<< Yes when we first put in our well they had us pour
bleach in it. I
don't know why exactly but that's what they told us.
So your buyer backed
out? Who tested your your water? They didn't give
you any info on how
to fix the problem? That's crazy they should help
