A Well Yield Test is a timed test to determine how many gallons per minute a well system can produce. A Well Yield Test will show: A functioning well pump and pressure tank If a well is running dry or lacks sufficient recuperation The reserve amount sitting in the well If home buyers would need to stretch the time between running water for showers, laundry, dishwasher, car washing, etc.
3-Hour Yield Test
More accurate, 3-hour test provides sufficient time to run through the reserve of the well to measure the actual amount of water falling into it from the ground.
1-Hour Yield Test
This is a shorter, less accurate stress test. It gives the home buyer a high-level view of the overall performance of the well and pumping system but may not represent the true statistics of the well.

Water can be tested for just about any mineral or impurity. However, the most common sample group is called the Potability Water Sample, also sometimes referred to as “Chemical and Bacteria Testing.” Should there be a problem, water conditioning units are available for any impurity found in the water.
