Water Well Inspections

Comprehensive Guide to Water Well Inspections: Quality, Safety, and Compliance

Are you considering purchasing a new property with a private well? If so, a comprehensive water well inspection should be at the top of your checklist. A well inspection is not just a cursory glance at the well’s exterior but an in-depth analysis of its entire system to ensure it is in optimal working condition. This detailed guide will arm you with everything you need to know about water well inspections and why they are crucial for every property owner.

Unveiling the Rich Quality of Private Wells

Water sourced from a private well is often perceived as superior in quality. With a private well, you get the chance to tap into natural, untreated groundwater that has been naturally filtered by the earth. For many, this represents a healthier and more sustainable source of water. However, the quality of water from a private well can significantly vary, depending on various factors like the construction of the well, the quality of the groundwater, and regular maintenance. This is where a comprehensive water well inspection becomes crucial.

The Necessity of Water Well Inspections

Just like your home needs a regular health check-up, so does your well. During the process of buying a home with a private well, your home inspection should include a thorough well system check-up. This inspection is necessary to ensure that the well is in perfect working order, the quality of the water produced meets health standards, and the construction of the well system aligns with the current California codes.

Prior to the inspection, it is crucial to obtain the well log or record. This record carries information on the history of the well and the ground surrounding it. Well drillers are required to file these logs with their respective states or counties upon the completion of all new wells. However, it is equally important for the well owners to maintain a copy of this record in the event the well needs servicing.

The Superior Well Service Promise

At Superior Well Service, we offer a comprehensive suite of services to ensure that your water well is in optimal condition. Our team of experts will:

  • Perform detailed water well inspections before the purchase or sale of a home.
  • Check for required code compliance to ensure that your well meets all relevant standards and regulations.
  • Use advanced Well Camera Technology to visually inspect the entire length of the well casing.
  • Conduct a thorough flow test to ascertain system output, pressure, and general water quality, including aspects like odor and cloudiness.
  • Test your water for potential contaminants including E. Coli, nitrates, iron, manganese, water hardness, sulfides, and any other elements that could pose problems with your health, plumbing, staining, water appearance, and odor.

The Power of Well Video Inspection

Water well inspections are not just about surface-level checks. There are a variety of problems that can occur deep down the well, which can potentially hinder the proper operation of your water system. With our advanced underwater video camera, we can accurately identify the cause and depth of any problems lurking beneath the surface.

Our video inspections can:

  • Determine the exact depth of the well casing.
  • Ascertain if there is any deterioration to the well casing that might compromise the integrity of the well.
  • Identify any mineral encrustation that could lead to water quality and quantity issues.
  • Pinpoint potential points of entry or locations of contamination.

With a video inspection, you get a crystal-clear understanding of the downhole conditions, enabling you to make intelligent long-term decisions, while avoiding unnecessary delays, repairs, and costs.

Whatever the issue, Superior Well Service has the knowledge and training to identify your water well problems and provide effective solutions.

Well Abandonment

fresh water well

Wells that are unused and have been improperly decommissioned (abandoned) pose a serious risk to ground water quality. Improperly decommissioned wells can directly channel contaminated surface water into ground water. Since ground water flows through soil and rock formations, contamination from an improperly decommissioned well can spread to other wells in the area. Because of these risks, abandoned wells must be filled, sealed and plugged.

There are very good reasons to make sure abandoned wells are properly decommissioned.

Risks Posed
Improperly abandoned wells threaten drinking water supplies by providing open conduits into aquifers that have potential to supply drinking water to public or private wells.
Any contaminants entering an abandoned well from the surface can travel easily into different water-bearing formations whether in coarse sand and gravel aquifers or in bedrock fracture zones and can cross-contaminate a number of water-bearing formations within one well.
If a drinking water well is being replaced because of water quality problems in the original well, the abandoned well is a direct threat to the new water supply if it is not properly sealed.
Improperly abandoned wells can create a liability problem at the time of property resale or if the well causes contamination in neighboring wells.
Shallow dug wells create a physical hazard simply because of their large diameter and the potential for animals or people to fall into them. Typically, the older fieldstone-lined wells are the most dangerous because many were finished flush to the ground surface and were covered with wooden covers which now are decayed or non-existent. Most of the well contaminants that commonly cause concern originate above ground, often as the result of human activities. Disease-causing bacteria and viruses, pesticides, fuels and industrial chemicals are examples of pollutants that can contaminate a ground water supply. Spills and careless storage or use of chemicals, and poor treatment and disposal of waste materials often are to blame.
Soil overlying the water table provides the primary protection against ground water pollution. Bacteria, sediment and other insoluble forms of contamination become trapped within the soil pores. Some chemicals are adsorbed or react chemically with various soil constituents, thereby preventing or slowing the migration of these pollutants into the ground water. In addition, plants and soil microorganisms use some potential pollutants, such as nitrogen, as nutrients for growth, thereby depleting the amount that reaches the ground water.
Well owners sometimes are tempted to use illegal wells to dispose of sewage and other wastes. This is unacceptable; it is literally like pouring waste directly into your drinking water, and the health risks can’t be overstated.
