What's Included in a Home Well Inspection?

Tank, Fittings, & Valves

Our well inspection begins inside your home. We check the water tank, including the fittings and valves. Our inspectors do a thorough job of examining the entire tank, making sure it’s operating correctly. We look for any signs of corrosion, rust, or decay. If anything needs to be repaired or replaced, this information is included on the well inspection report.

Outside Well & Components

Our certified well inspectors will then move on to the outdoor pump system. We’ll test the pump, checking it for both volume and pressure. We’ll also take off the well cap and examine the water level as it runs. Throughout this process, we’ll examine and review the entire system, looking for any signs that repairs that need to be made. 

Water Softener

For our last step, we completely examine the water softener. We check the salt levels as well as examine the softener for any signs of iron, sulfur, or hardness. We’ll also inspect both the outside tank components and the inside of the tank. Any recommendations for repairs or maintenance will be included in our thorough well inspection report.
