I wanted to talk with you today about wells. Buyers ask if they have to do a well test? I think it is important to do a flow test & check for ecoli & coliform. The flow test determines how many gallons per minute the well is pumping and the recovery rate. The flow test is important because it can indicate if a well currently has problems. The ecoli & coliform water quality test tells you if the water is safe for human consumption. If ecoli or coliform is detected, the system can be shocked (bleached). This normally eliminates the problem.
