A residential water well system is built to provide clean, efficient and great tasting water to people that live off municipal water systems. However, these systems need to be inspected frequently to ensure the water that you’re drinking is safe, is efficiently flowing to your home and is set up for ease of use all year long. A major part of keeping your home water well maintained is scheduling an annual inspection provided by a professional well service company in Arizona.

However, we also complete water well inspections frequently; to verify the safety and efficiency of the water well. With this being said, there are a few items on our well inspection checklist that you should consider when planning to have your residential water well inspected that will ensure your system is well protected.

  • Always work with a licensed or certified water well inspector in Arizona. Professionals who understand the inner workings of water well systems that are built and used in this state have a better understanding of the unique issues and can provide more complete inspections.
  • Make sure you have bacteria and chemical testing included in your water well inspection. Talk to us about your concerns and the team at Pump It Up Pump Service, Inc. will make sure the systems are perfectly maintained and that your drinking water is safe.
  • Keep any chemicals, fertilizers, paints, oils or pesticides far from your water well. Reduce the risk of man-made chemicals from entering your water supply.
  • Check the well cover frequently to ensure it’s in good shape. A problem with a water well cover can lead to contamination of your drinking water and expensive repairs.
  • Do everything in your power to avoid back-syphoning. Anytime you work with hoses, make sure you don’t mix chemicals, fertilizers or pesticides. These contaminants can enter the water supply.
  • Be careful about landscaping. Consider where you mow, place leaves, snow or other items. It’s always a good idea to keep your well free of debris or obstructions.
  • Make sure you keep all well records in an easy to find and safe place. This will include your construction report, annual residential water well inspections and testing results. Doing this will allow you to share this data with your water well inspection people and if you choose to sell your property, it makes it much easier to complete the final well inspection.

A final reality that many homeowners never consider is shelf life. Water wells typically have a lifespan of about 20 years. It’s always a great idea to work with a professional residential water well inspection company in Arizona that can track your system’s efficiency and provide solutions to keep it operational.
