If your next property purchase includes a private well, you might want to consider getting a private well and water inspection. These types of inspections are very insightful as you learn more about your property and how it functions and what to expect while living on well water. Well water collection should be constructed so that rainwater can flow away from it. Unfortunately, rainwater can pick up a number of contaminants, like bacteria, that can make their way into your well system. Well water systems are typically overlooked until there is a larger problem with them.
The placements of well water systems should be kept at least 50 feet away from any septic tanks, livestock yards, or silos. Furthermore, they should be double that distance or more to things like fertilizer storage or manure stacks. A well water inspector can identify whether or not the placement of the system is in danger of contamination.
Once the well water system is inspected, the water can also be tested to ensure it is safe for everyday use including consumption. The inspector will take a sample of the water and test it for different types of bacteria or contaminants.
