We offer testing services ranging from:

Yield Test :

The Yield test calculates the maximum water that can be pumped out of the borehole and the time it takes to recover the recharge of water from the water source/vain.

The Flow is calculated to never drop lower than the strike/Water source.

Step Test :

During this test the pump rate is increased in steps at regular intervals. These intervals will be calculated after assessing the borehole.

Constant Rate:

Constant rate test duration ranges from 8-48 Hours (not  exceeding 48 Hours), the time is usually calculated proportional to the yield test.

Recovery: 

During the recovery, the draw down is calculated measuring the level directly after the constant rate test.

Camera inspections costs:

 

  • Standard costs R4500.00
