Well and Water Testing

Bald Eagle Inspection Services, LLC provides the most comprehensive and accurate well and water testing services in the Capital District area. During a well yield test we attempt to substantially reduce the flow within the time period of the test to determine insufficient well recovery rate. The average GPM that a well can produce is determined by many factors including, but not limited to pipe sizes, fixture flow rates, pump size and well depth. Since individual demands differ, results that are acceptable for some may not be for others. Acceptable results require 180 gallons within a 60 min time period.

Bald Eagle Inspection Services protocol for conducting a well yield test: Typically the test is run from an exterior hose bib which supplies water at a maximum of 24 GPM (gallons per minute). A digital water flow meter is attached to the hose bib and water is turned to full capacity for one minute, the one minute GPM capacity is logged. The flow capacity is reduced to between 3 and 4 gallons per minute and confirmed several times over the duration of the test. This flow is maintained for 59 minutes. At the conclusion of the test the total gallons produced is recorded and divided by 60 minutes for total GPM over the duration of the test. If flow of water is substantially reduced or stops, it can be concluded that the well is not capable of producing 3 GPM of water at the time of the test.

This is not a “5 gallon bucket test,” this test is conducted at the highest level capable by a home inspector.

Jason was extremely thorough and professional.. He made several recommendations about improving air quality that go beyond mold removal, and his expertise on exposure to mold was obvious. The problem tried out to be less than we had feared, and his report helped us identify what additional steps to take.
We hired Jason to do the home inspection on the house we were purchasing and we couldn't have been happier with his feedback and expertise. He is passionate about his line of work and being compliant. If you need someone to be your advocate on a home inspection, mold assessment, etc. I would recommend Jason 100%.
Jason is very helpful, patient, knowledgeable, and answered all of my questions (and I had a lot of questions). I even added some extra services last minute and he was very accommodating. He reached out to me right away with all of my results and sent me his reports very quickly. It was very comforting to receive a phone call explanation before opening the results in my e-mail. I would absolutely recommend Bald Eagle Inspection Services and will be using them for all of our follow-up needs. Thank you!
Jason was incredibly professional, prompt, and very helpful with our mold assessment. He explained the process clearly, helped us choose a respected mold remediation company, and was there to answer questions as they arose. He came back for a clearance inspection within hours of the remediation being completed. I would highly recommend Jason and will definitely reach out to him in the future for any additional assessments I may need.
