Whenever a property is sold a well inspection should be performed. While well inspections are not a warranty inspection, a thorough well inspection can help in determining if the well is capable of providing water for normal household use. Murray Drilling Company provides an Inspection Procedure Form to the buyers and sellers so they understand how the inspection is performed and what is reported so that there is no misunderstanding of what the inspection entails.EQUIPMENT:
The equipment that is accessible above ground will be inspected.YIELD TEST:
A 30 minute flow test will be performed at the house.POTABILITY TEST:
Without question a Potability test should be done. This checks for Coliform and E-Coli bacteria. Additional testing can be performed but MDC requires that the buyers request the specific test/s 48 hours prior to the inspection. We can recommend testing labs to contact for information on water testing.PERMITS:
A brief search for well permits will be performed based on the physical address, if we are unable to locate permit information all parties will be notified and it will then be the responsibility of the selling party to contact the appropriate agencies to try and locate permits or take steps to obtain them.HOME INSPECTORS ARE NOT QUALIFIED TO INSPECT YOUR WELL SYSTEM - ONLY HIRE PROFRESSIONAL WELL CONTRACTORS TO PROVIDE AN INSPECTION.
