Well draw down testing

Hello, I’m an inspector in WA State. I would like to be able to perform well draw down testing but can’t seem to find any educational sources. Any suggestions?

Allen, have you taken the basic well inspection course here? There are plenty of “how to do” and calculate drawdown testing on the internet but I would get this under your belt first if you haven’t yet.


And welcome to the forums Allen!!

I once owned a house in the mountains of New Jersey… The well only ever had problems during the summer months, otherwise there was always sufficient water flow… Good luck with that enterprise, there ain’t enough milk money in that proposition for me to ever consider such a proposal and I regularly bet horses.

Some counties require well draw for a Real Estate Transaction.

Some States/Counties require Well (and Septic) Certification at time of transactions AND every 5 years thereafter!!

Yes, welcome to our forum, Allen! :smile:
