Well Inspections

Well inspections are most often done when someone is refinancing or selling/buying a home. VA and FHA loans require some level of inspection and water testing. Whether it's for your home or business, you’ll need to have an inspection to ensure that the system is functioning properly prior to buying or selling. You will also want to be certain that the water coming from the well is able to meet the required standards of health for drinking and everyday use. Well Doctor can assist with your professional well inspection needs.

Why Have a Well Inspection Performed?

It is recommended that anyone who is buying a home with a well have it inspected prior to closing. This will ensure that the well continues to function correctly, lasts longer, and gives you the most for your money.

Many lenders don’t mention the need for a well inspection and/or water testing until a day or two before closing, which causes problems. A test for bacteria requires 24-48 hours for results. Lead can take a week for results. And if there is bacteria present, approval must be acquired to shock the well, which cannot usually be done same-day). Then, it needs to sit in the pipes for 12-24 hours before being flushed out, after which another 24 hours must pass before it can be retested to ensure sure the bacteria is gone – which means another 24-48 hours for final test results.

Due to the lengthy process of well inspections, we strongly recommend anyone involved in a real estate transaction on a property with a well perform the inspection and well test as early as possible, preferably at least 2 weeks in advance of closing.

The primary reason for inspecting your well is to make sure that you and everyone who drinks water from it is protected against harmful contaminants. This can present serious health issues for the people using your well. A proper inspection should be performed by a certified well service professional. They should pay careful attention to any signs that there may be a problem. If one presents itself, it should be remedied right away.

Why Hire a Professional Service?

Use of a professional well service means that if there is a problem, someone can quickly and immediately attend to the needs of the customer. Suppose your well tests positive for some type of bacteria. It is important that the correct professionals are notified and the matter is properly and efficiently handled.
