    a 2 hour pumpdown test is the most important measurement test you can do.

    The pump down test is great , if you can get the homeowner to start it 2 hours before you get there .

    that's part of the job, analyzing the system. i wouldn't trust a home owner to do anything for you. in fact the irrigation system that i was telling you about last year where the ho had someone else do the job because he didn't want a pumpdown test taken and the other bidders said i didn't know what i was talking about. they punched a new well last week, my dad was doing some excavation near the site and talked to the driller (anyone spell lawsuit)

    You can get a handle on a well's usefulness in less time, if you keep a close eye on a pressure gauge while it is running steady (no cycling)
