Your Annual Water Well Checkup Consists of:
- A flow test to measure system output, along with a check of the water level before and during pumping (if possible), pump motor performance (check amp load, grounding, and line voltage), and pressure tank and pressure switch contact.
- An inspection of well equipment to assure that it is sanitary and meets local code requirements.
- A test of your water for coliform bacteria and nitrates, and anything else of local concern. Other typical additional tests are those for iron, manganese, water hardness, sulfides, and other water constituents that cause problems with plumbing, staining, water appearance, and odor. Changes in these constituents also may indicate changes in your well or local groundwater. Additional tests may be recommended if water appears cloudy or oily, if bacterial growth is visible on fixtures, or water treatment devices are not working as they should.
- We will also check the well cover or well cap on top of the casing to ensure it is in good repair and securely attached. Its seal should keep out insects and rodents.
