If possible, we recommend that the well be used and installed for 1 to 2 months before a filtration system. This could be as simple as hanging the pump and wasting water while the house is being built. JkA recommends at least a minimum pumping test on all wells, where the water level is recorded in the well while the well is pumped, so-called drawdown testing. If necessary, water samples should be taken at the end of the test. You must provide us with a copy of your construction or septic construction project with your property website offered with. If the land line is within 100-FT of the well, we also need copies of the neighbors that show the distance from the proposed well. For neighborhoods with public sewers, a flat or similar map, which shows the sewers, is sufficient. The well must be 5 FT of land pipes, 100-FT of all drainage fields (including the reserve) and 50-FT of septic tanks and sewer lines. Please WAC 173-160-171 for the full list of setbacks at Washington State, although some counties may have additional requirements. You can download copies of the construction for King, Snohomish and other counties by clicking here, copies of flat maps and information about sewer lines must be collected from the local supply area or city offices. A correct specification must contain all the intended uses for the well – home feeding, watering, sprinkler, fire sprinkler, etc. In addition, an expected demand on a daily basis and peak flow is ideal, but not always available.

For example, a 4-person household could use 350 gallons per day with a maximum demand rate of 10 gallons per minute (GPM), but if you add a sprinkler system, the maximum demand can suddenly reach 26 GPM or more. From the well to the fountain control (pressure tank or other controls), you need the wire and water line between the well and the installation site, but estimates are difficult, with no details on the site. The pressure tank and control must be installed in a gel-free case, for example. B in a well house, garage or mechanical room. Drillers and landowners are responsible for ensuring safe and legal access to groundwater. Water is not a property right in Washington State. There are many competing uses of water; Some parts of the state may not have enough water available for new wells or may be closed for future removals. At one point, a well driller was able to choose the land for a well on behalf of the landowner. Over the past 30 years, local welfare rules have been more difficult to navigate and/or make impossible for drillers due to district restrictions.
