249 gallons per minute, and so far we have pumped out 36,000 gallons! This is a fine well!
For some hydrogeological testing purposes, a well must be pumped for 72 continuous hours, day and night with measurements taken manually, every hour!
Well flow and volume testing is our specialty!

A superb well drilled many decades ago in the Prince George area that we flow tested . It is capable of 3000 gallons per minute!
Ian is installing a “Well Buster”. on a new well. This is a device that plugs off the top of a well to prevent water from gushing over the top. This well is a flowing artesian well. At the time of insertion the water is being pumped out of the well at 100 gallons per minute from a valve lower down. Without that, water would geyser over the top! This device keeps water below ground level so as to prevent freezing in winter.
