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.

Serving all areas of Upstate New York, including Saratoga Springs, Malta, Ballston Spa, Clifton Park, Schenectady, Troy, Rensselaer County and upper Albany County. We will travel further for an additional fee.

We love Jason! This was our second inspection with him and it was just as we expected the second time around informative, exceptional and detailed. Our lawyer was complaining about inspectors in general and we said, “but do you know Jason?” And it’s true, he is the exception. We were so happy with his work and even hired him as our mold inspector. We trust him and his suggestions 100 percent! We look forward to working with him again in the future. Thanks Jason!

Jason was amazing! He met us right on time for a multi-family home inspection and we are very happy with the results! He was so impressive with his extensive knowledge and complete thoroughness. Andrew was patient with all of our questions and offered lots of avenues to explore. And provided the report the same day! I would highly recommend Bald Eagle Inspection Services and much appreciate the excellent service!

Jason's response was prompt and the communication was great. He performed indoor air testing (quick results). He was very professional and accommodating. He even took the time to answer some questions I had inspecting areas of the house that did not have to do with the service we requested. I highly recommend Jason and I would hire him in the future.

Amazingly thorough home inspection. Very professional and prompt service. I truly appreciated that when we had questions before and after the inspection, Jason didn't hesitate to spend time explaining (and reexplaining) in detail. Highly recommended.

Thanks to Jason of Bald Eagle Inspection Services for promptly assessing my attic mold issue and preparing a plan of action which I could forward to a mold remediator. He was a pleasure to deal with and is highly recommended.
