WELL INSPECTION SERVICES
Your Home Inspector is specially trained to inspect your well. We want to inspect to ensure the environment is safe.
This is considered a Add-on to the existing Home Inspection. There is a extra fee for this service. We offer Water Quality Testing services also which can determine the quality of the water in the home. A water test can determine E. Coli and Coliform that could be in the water. It takes about 48 hrs to have test results.
There are several types of wells.

Dug / Bored Well:
These are holes in the ground dug by shovel or backhoe. The are lined (ceased) with stones, bricks, tile, or other material to prevent collapse. Dug wells have a large diameter, are shallow (approximately 10 – 30 feet deep) and are not cased continuously.
These are constructed by driving pipe into the ground. Driven wells are cased continuously and shallow (approximately 30 to 50 feet deep). Though driven wells are cased, they can be contaminated easily because they draw water from aquifers near the surface.
These are constructed by percussion or rotary-drilling machines. Drilled wells can be thousands of feet deep and require the installation of casing.
Drilled wells have a lower risk of contamination due to their depth and use of continuous casing.
