Grundfos, a global leader in water technology, has released a new pump module in its most recent update to the company’s WellConnect app. The platform enables water well contractors to complete daily water system management 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 share and access project details 24/7 on one easy-to-use platform.
“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 at Grundfos. “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.”

Improved well visualizer graphics and functionality
Since the Grundfos WellConnect app launched in February 2020, hundreds of water well contractors have been using the app 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.”
