Darling Irrigation can design and install stock and domestic water and irrigation solutions that suits your operation, the quality of the water and the capacity of the bore.
Custom Solutions for your Situation
Water is not always just water, especially when it is extracted from a bore. Other compounds such as chlorides, sulphates and other salts, often come along for the ride and influence the way the water affects infrastructure, livestock and crops. At extreme levels, these unwanted compounds can make water unusable or seriously affect the life span of equipment.
Not only is the quality of the water from the bore important but the viability of an entire operation can hinge on how reliably the bore can produce the required water supply or if the bore can produce a sustainable flow rate. The bores capacity affects the selection of equipment and the water use.
Water testing is the only sure way to know what you are working with when it comes to bore water.
Testing helps determine what you can use the water for or if the water requires the use of dosing pumps to add stabilising compounds to correct imbalances in pH and neutralise highly corrosive elements that may have been detected in the water.
Testing of a bore’s capacity to meet long-term demand helps protect your investment in a system dependent on that bore.
Darling Irrigation is able to flow test stock and domestic bores as well as irrigation bores ranging in flowrates from 0.5l/s to 105l/s and from a minimum of 4” bore diameter.
Standard four hour, 12 hour and 24 hour tests are available in addition to fully customised testing and monitoring over an extended period, all with full log details of flow rate, drawdown and recovery periods provided with the completed report.
Monitoring of surrounding bores to that which is being pump tested is also available. Test equipment is mobile and independently powered.
