Buying a Home?
Most home owners know very little about their well pump system, many came from areas that relied on municipal water. An inspection gives you an impartial third party evaluation of the water delivery system. This evaluation will inform you of any major repairs or safety issues that need to be addressed. The inspection covers major components like the well pump, gallons per minute of the well, how the well is sealed, if the water has any bacteria in it, the safety of the electrical system and much more.
Do not be alarmed, very few wells are perfect. Just because a problem has been noted it does not mean you shouldn't go through with the purchase. Often the items noted are building code conditions that were completely acceptable at the time the well was drilled, but now are outdated. Or normal wear and tear of the well that after being fixed will keep the system working for many more years to come.
Selling a Home?
Don't wait for a buyer's inspection to uncover problems that can affect the sale of your home. Find out about them ahead of time so you have time to make the appropriate fix or at least you can be the first to disclose the issue. Also, having a well that has already been inspected will make your property that much more appealing to potential buyers.
Having a well inspection done before the sale will give you valuable information for potential buyers. Things like how many gallons per minute the well produces and if the water is bacteria free and below state nitrate levels. Issues like water odor can be easily addressed but if a potential buyer turns on the tap and smells the water it may turn them way from this home.
We can even perform basic tests like gallons per minute with out doing the full inspection before the home enters escrow for a small additional fee.
There are over 20 different things we check during a well inspection not to mention that we take water to a certified lab for testing.
- Gallons Per Minute (GPM)
- Pump Amperage
- Pump Size
- Pressure Tank Size
- Overall Well Quality
- Static Water Level
- And much much more
