WHY SAMPLE WELL WATER?

 

Well water may contain contamination in many different forms. Obtaining a sample of well water at the source in the well can be a valuable aid in determining the source of unwanted contamination. It is possible that water is entering the well from more than one source. Multiple samples taken at different depths in the well can help identify the source of contamination.

 

HOW IS SAMPLING CONDUCTED?

 

WELLOG uses a stainless steel water sampling tool designed for water sampling purposes. The tool is designed to collect a one liter water sample. The sampling tool is connected to a wireline cable and lowered to the desired depth in the well. The sampling tool has a port that is opened by a command from the surface. After a predetermined amount of time that is required for the sample chamber to fill, the port is closed. The water sample is sealed inside the chamber. The tool and contained sample are raised to the surface. The sample tool is thoroughly cleaned. When the sample chamber is opened, the water sample is poured into a sterile, sealed water sample container. WELLOG can perform basic TDS measurement, odor, clarity, and organic/inorganic and spectrometric tests for certain contaminants. Follow-up tests can be performed at a certified laboratory if required by the customer. WELLOG will convey the sealed sample container to a laboratory for analysis and furnish a final report to the customer.

 

HOW DO I SCHEDULE WATER SAMPLING?

 

When the well pump is removed for maintenance or replacement, call WELLOG. An appointment will be made to come to the well site and perform the water sampling operation.
