Well and Water Inspector – As you build your Power Team you may want to have several questions that you ask each potential member.  You may be looking to purchase a property that has city services or a property that might have a well and septic tank system. If you are purchasing a property with a well, you should have a well inspection. 

What is a well inspection? A well inspection is a thorough examination of a water well, including the water flow, the water quality, the pump motor performance, as well as an inspection of the pressure tank and the pressure switch contact to ensure the highest level of performance.

There is not an exact script to interview your Well and water Inspector, but here are several questions you can consider asking your Well and Water Inspector:

1.    What can cause poor water quality? 

2.    What are the health hazards that I should be concerned about?

3.    How do I find out about my drinking water?

GOLDEN NUGGET TIP: If your property has private well water, you will need to have the well tested to determine if there are contaminants. The EPA recommends testing annually for coli-form bacteria, nitrates, total dissolved solids, and PH levels.

4.    How can I help protect the water supply?

5.    Are your company inspectors certified by the National Ground Water Association?  

6.    If I have a private well, what concerns should I have after a flood in the area?

7.    Do you provide services for emergency treatment to a well?  

8. How long have you been in business and can you provide references?

9. How much will it cost to inspect my well and what type of report will I get?

10. Can I get an email and secondary number either cell phone number or office phone to contact you with further questions?
