Pump installations should start with a good knowledge of water well construction methods for proper sizing and design parameters. Setting depths, elevation criteria and friction loss data all lead to choosing the correct pump for individual locations. With 4 decades of experience, we have the expertise and knowledge to assist our Vancouver Island clients with their pump installation needs in a professional, courteous and efficient manner.
Example: Several years ago, one of our competitors replaced an existing 1/2hp submersible with a much larger 1hp model. The 1/2hp pump had been installed in an open bottom well rated at 6gpm. The 1hp submersible (much too large) heaved up the sand in the well and choked the flow down to 2gpm. BC Aquifer, in conjunction with a local drilling company, had the well redeveloped to its original yield and then re-plumbed the system to only allow 6gpm from the well. Unfortunately, the customer is consuming twice the power that would be required if the competitor had reinstalled the proper pump in the first place. In that case, bigger was not better.
