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.

  • 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.
