When Should I Schedule a Professional Well Inspection?

Home Purchase

Many prospective homeowners don’t realize that a home inspector is not licensed to conduct well inspections. This is why you need a professional well inspector to perform a thorough inspection of both the well and the tank before you buy the home. They know what to look for in order to make sure the entire well system is functioning properly. You don’t want any surprises once you move into your new home. 

During the well inspection, the inspector will:

  • Examine the tank, fittings, and valves.
  • Monitor the pump and well.
  • Take off the well cap and check the water level.
  • Check the water softener for iron, sulfur, and hardness.

Annual Maintenance Inspection

It’s essential to schedule an annual well inspection to get ahead of any future potential problems. The well inspectors at Ackerson are licensed and certified to perform annual preventative inspections. During the yearly examination, our team will search for warning signs such as:

  • Deteriorating pipes
  • Cracked pipes
  • Tree roots too close to the well
  • and more! 

Necessary Repairs

Do you suspect your well is in need of some repair or maintenance? In between each yearly inspection, it’s important to watch for evidence of a problem with your water well. There are specific indications to look for, such as:

  • Air in the water
  • Sand in the water
  • Low water pressure
  • Extremely high electric bill
