Manufacturer Grundfos has updated the company’s WellConnect app with a new pump module.
“Based on valuable user feedback, we have improved the WellConnect app by adding a new pump module, making improvements to the well visualizer graphics and functionality, and allowing the user to enter pump data independently of well information,” says Dan Story, vice president of sales for groundwater and irrigation. “The new module gives users the ability to record pump end and motor information, pump panel and control information, pump installation details, and record site troubleshooting and test information.”
The WellConnect platform enables water well contractors to manage water system tasks from their phone, tablet or computer — including drilling logs, completion and downhole data, pump history, and maintenance history. Information and documents are stored securely in the cloud, enabling teams to easily share and access project details.
Improvements to the app include:
- Record pump end and motor information like manufacturer, speed and capacity, and serial number.
- Record pump panel and control details like incoming power, NEMA rating and pump starting type.
- Record pump installation details like depth, drop pipe material and size, flow sleeve information and installed accessories.
- Record a site test for the pump, including current unbalance check, power insulation check, and wire size records.
- Enter pump data independently of well information.
The app also now features improved well visualizer graphics and other functionality.
In a release, Grundfos says that, since the app launched in February 2020, hundreds of water well contractors used it to manage geophysical logs, well and pump records, and share data with their team back in the office.
“Our customers’ businesses are constantly adapting to meet the needs of the market — and so is WellConnect,” Story says. “At Grundfos, we have been pioneering innovative and efficient solutions to the world’s water and climate challenges for 75 years. We strive to effectively improve everyone’s quality of life. To make these improvements, we need to work together, so we gladly welcome feedback on the WellConnect app from water well contractors.”
