One of the most important parts of borehole and well management is having the ability to monitor a site and ensure optimum capacity is achieved around the clock.
External elements such as the build-up of iron residue, contamination from iron-related bacteria, variable demand or seasonal issues, can all cause performance fluctuations.
The impact of these can include reduced energy efficiency and pumping capacity, and could potentially lead to the eventual failure of equipment...
