Water use varies with individuals and their habits. A conservative figure would be 100 gallons per day. To determine the approximate water needed in 24 hour for a property, use this equation:
2 persons per bedroom (double # of bedrooms) times 100 gallons
Example: for 3 bedrooms: 3 X 2 = 6; 6 X 100 = 600 gallons
The REGENERATION RATE should be capable of replenishing all the water used in the home in one day.
How and when water is used is the second component in determining the adequacy of a water well. The bulk of water use normally occurs in two MAXIMUM DEMAND periods, which are morning and evening. Each MAXIMUM DEMAND period consumes about one half of the total daily water requirement. Therefore, the REGENERATION RATE and water WELL STORAGE or ADDITIONAL STORAGE must be adequate to meet the MAXIMUM LOAD demands.
Water storage other than that within the well, such as above ground or buried tanks, from which water is pumped into the house.
The maximum volume of water expressed in gallons per minute (gpm) or gallons per hour (gph), which the pumping system discharges at the static level, demonstrating the satisfactory performance of the pumping system.
Time period within which the heaviest water use is concentrated. This is another indication of the proper or adequate size of the pumping system needed to meet the need and the supply of the well.
The volume of water, expressed in gallons per gallons per minute (gpm) or gallons per hour (gph), which the well produces independent of WELL STORAGE or ADDITIONAL STORAGE. The REGENERATION RATE is established when a stabilizing pumping condition has been reached and the yield (REGENERATION RATE) does not change by more than 10% during the last hour of the test.
The distance in feet from the ground surface to the level of water in the well prior to any pumping.
The total volume of water, expressed in gallons, which the pumping system discharged during the duration of the test from WELL STORAGE and REGENERATION.
The depth of the well from surface to the bottom. The depth could be reported by the owner, found on the driller's well log, or estimated by the service person performing the well test.
The volume of water, expressed in gallons, which is available for immediate use within the well at the start of the test.
