The Pump Efficiency Test is performed by installing a Flow Meter on the discharge of the pump and measuring the volume of flow, draws down in the well, amp load of the motor, and system pressure. This information is documented and entered into a computer to calculate Overall Pumping Plant Efficiency. This test will determine how efficiently water is being produced by the power input to the pump. You may be eligible for rebates from your power provider or other State funded efficiency programs. An efficient Water System can save you money for years to come.
