Sorry. You did not pass the 17 - Groundwater Pumping test this time

Correct
Q: What is well development?
A: A process that ensures that the well’s sand filter has been improved so the well produces clean, sand-free water
Correct
Q: How is it possible to protect the motor against bad power supply?
A: By means of an electronic motor protection that senses all possible deviations
Correct
Q: By-pass control is an efficient way of performance regulating a pump but what is the downside of the process?
A: Energy is wasted as the pump continues to run at full speed
Correct
Q: On top of energy-efficient pump operation, how does a frequency drive benefit your installation?
A: It comes with a built-in motor protection
Correct
Q: Why is it important to know the water drawdown?
A: The more the drawdown increases during pump operation, the more pressure is required to lift the groundwater to the surface
Correct
Q: Why is it a good idea to make a well where the groundwater level is as high as possible?
A: The shorter the distance is to the water the less expensive it is to make the borehole and subsequently to pump the water to the surface
Correct
Q: What could be the consequences of using an undersized pump in a well?
A: The pump may not be able to deliver the required capacity
Correct
Q: What should the minimum flow past the motor be to ensure sufficient motor cooling?
A: 0,15 m/s
