Well Information Form Quick Submit

Use our online form below to submit your answers about your well’s setup. Our team will review your setup and then provide you with a reasonable estimate. Note, that it is imperative to have a discussion prior to ordering your new pump system. Installing a Bison Pump is a lifetime investment, and we will work with you to provide the best setup for your situation.

Bison Pumps developed this page to assist customers in completing the Well Information Form that is used to gather your well information so you can obtain a quote for a deep well pump system. Before you begin print the form so you can follow it while you read the instructions below. If you have your well report, it will contain most, if not all, of the required information. The information will contain links to more detailed information. A quick review of the provided links is recommended to provide you with better insight into the terminology, etc.

First we’ll start with an overview of the available pump system types and capabilities. Bison Pumps provides both Shallow Well (suction pump) and Deep Well Lift Pump Pump systems. For an understanding of the differences between the two, review Deep Well versus Shallow Well Pump Systems. All Bison pump systems are closed systems, meaning they can build up pressure. This allows them to have the feature of Pressurizing or Pumping Uphill.

Bison Pump systems can be installed with many water sources: lakes, ponds, rainwater cisterns, hand dug wells, standard cased wells and Artesian Wells.

Most of the Bison Deep Well Pump Systems are NOT Freeze Proof. Shallow well pumps and pump systems where the water exits above ground such as Submersible Connection Deep Well Pump System and Inline – Top Deep Well Pump System are NOT Freeze Proof.

1. Does your well have a well casing?
Note:
Well casing height is defined as the distance from the ground to the top of the well casing. It is important for two primary reasons: 1) the Bison Pump well adapter requires approximately 4” of well casing on which to attach the pump head and 2) the pump head handle needs to be at a comfortable height for most users. In most cases a height of 18”-24” is sufficient to address both well casing height issues.

2. Does your well casing extend above ground?

3. Your well casing is made of:

inches above ground
inches
inches

7. Is there a secondary casing (liner) inside the primary casing?

Note:
Liners are typically PVC pipe inside a well casing. They usually are 4 inches in diameter and start anywhere from close to the top of the well casing to 20-30 feet below the ground. Refer to your well report or contact your well driller to determine if your well has a liner.

Note:
Static water level refers to the distance from the top level of water in a well under normal, undisturbed, no-pumping conditions to ground level. Static water level is best determined when the well has not been pumped for several hours prior to measuring. You may get a false reading if the well was pumped just before the static water level is measured.

To measure the Static Water Level, lower a weighted string into the well until you hear it hit the water. Repeat hitting the water to confirm the proper level had been reached. Tie a knot in the string at the top of the casing. Pull the string out of the well and lay it out on the ground. Using a measuring tape, measure the distance from the end of the string to the knot. This distance, in feet, is your static water level. However, if you have a well casing, your static water level is this distance minus the well casing height.

12. Does your well have an electric submersible pump installed?

feet

gallons per minute

15. Where does the electric submersible pump's water output exit the well?

16. What is the size of the water output pipe in question 15 above?

17. The water output pipe is made of:

18. Your choke point measurement is:

Note:
This is the distance between the pitless adapter and the inside wall on the opposite side of the well casing.

This measurement can be determined by sliding PVC pipe with known diameter down your well casing. Your measurement is the largest pipe that will slide past this area.


19. How do the wires enter the well?

20. Are there any obstructions in the well?
Check all that apply.
Note:
Option "a" - These are plastic devices that are attached to the drop pipe. They provide a space through which to run the wires from the electrical submersible pump up to the surface. The purpose is to keep the wire away from the casing and drop pipe. These are placed every 10-20 feet along the pipe that goes to the electric submersible pump. For a Bison Pump installation these guards must either be removed or “pushed down” to roughly 20 feet below the static water level.

Option "b" - These are rubber devices that expand to the size of the inside casing diameter. They are typically mounted directly above the electric submersible pump on the section of pipe that threads into the pump. Its intent is to prevent the pipe from moving due to the torque created when the electric submersible pump starts operation (clock-wise motion). Some installers place these at 1-2 other positions along the drop pipe going up to the top, but this is not common. Those that are in the zone of installation for the Bison Pump system must be removed.

21. Does your well have a jet pump installed?

22. The jet pump is installed:

23. How many pipes go from the jet pump to the well?

GPM

Note:
The well recovery rate determines the amount of time that is required to replace water removed from the well.
