If you have a well on your property, maintaining it is critical to ensuring the reliability and cleanliness of your water supply. At Yadkin Well Company, well inspections are one of our services, and we conduct thorough inspections that give our clients a clear picture of what’s going on with their well and their water.

Well Inspections: What Happens During a Well Inspection?

During our well inspections, here are some of the steps we take:

  • We start by examining the well equipment and making sure that everything is in proper working order. For example, we will check the well and its parts, including the cap, vents, casing, storage tank, and the pump.
  • We will also conduct a visual check of all the overflows, screens, gaskets, and seals.
  • We then test the quality of the water in the well to make sure it is healthy and safe to drink.
  • We will make recommendations for any needed repairs or additional steps you should take.

Well inspections are recommended annually for all well owners. This gives us the chance to check for mechanical problems and cleanliness, as well as the presence of harmful contaminants, like nitrates and coliform bacteria.

Most wells can last a long time if they are properly maintained during their useful lifespan. We would be happy to answer any of your questions about well inspections and what they include.
