Pump Tests

All water taken for stock and irrigation purposes are subject to resource consent through your Regional Council. As part of the resource consent process, pumping tests need to be carried out. They are the constant rate and step drawdown tests followed by a recovery test and on-going water well monitoring.

This process helps to establish a sustainable water take and will determine the type and size of pump that is needed.

Wanganui WellDrillers have a range of submersible pumps with orifice plates and water meters, matching column pipes, power cables, and generator capacity to undertake pump tests to Regional Council standards.

The team at Wanganui WellDrillers Ltd has become a reliable first choice for farmers, regional councils and private firms looking for experience in the field of groundwater drilling.

We also have a full range of orifices and water meters to handle projected pumping rates.
