The Importance of Well Inspections: What You Should Know

Buying a home is a huge step, and is certainly going to be one of your biggest investments. You will want to make sure that everything is running smoothly so that there are no surprises down the road.

When trying to sell a home, many know that they need a home inspection. However it doesn’t always occur to those involved to have their wells inspected. This is much more in depth than just checking to see if the water comes out of the faucet.

Why is it so important to have your well inspected?

Water is used for so many things throughout the course of the day. Whenever you shower, cook, clean, drink, or even give your dog a bath, you are using water. The last thing you want to happen is move into your dream home just to find you don’t have enough water for everyone!

Many homes were built decades ago and so their pumping system among other things might be outdated or no longer working. It’s best to catch problems early, before they get to be extremely expensive. Along those same lines it’s important to have the flow tested- this involves determining the water pressure and monitoring for unusual fluctuations.

This type of inspection will also help you gauge your water quality. No one wants to drink contaminated water, especially if levels are high enough to get you or members of your family sick.

There are instances where wells have to be completely replaced, but this is also a situation where it is best to be prepared with information beforehand. Having these tests and inspections done could potentially save you thousands of dollars, along with saving you time and frustration.
