Well Inspection

There are two levels of inspection you can order:

a) Inspection by a licensed home inspector

At your request, a home inspector can perform a visual inspection of the well head and equipment. The water will be run for 30 minutes from several faucets simultaneously to determine the approximate flow rate of the interior plumbing.

You will receive a report summarizing his observations. If the flow rate at interior faucets is less than 3 gallons per minute, we recommend that a licensed well expert analyze the system to determine the problem and cure.

b) Inspection by a licensed well expert

A well expert performs a visual inspection of the well head and equipment. If you are applying for a conventional loan/mortgage, the water needs to be run from the well head for approximately 30 to 60 minutes.

When there is a request for a FHA well certification, the water needs to be run for 4 to 5 hours continuously to determine the well yield and the recovery rate.

You will receive a report summarizing the well expert's observations. If there are any problems, the report will include their cost to cure.

Septic Inspection

There are two levels of inspection you can order:

a) Visual inspection by a licensed home inspector

During this inspection a licensed home inspector runs water from several faucets in the house for approximately 30 minutes. He also inserts dye into a stool. This process is called "stress test."

You will receive a report with the inspector's observations and recommendations.

Note: For this type of inspection the septic tank or cesspool is not opened. Being a visual inspection only, it does not provide an in-depth analysis of the condition of the system.

b) Inspection by a licensed private waste disposal expert 

During this inspection a licensed private waste disposal expert opens the septic tank/cesspool and observes the waste level inside and the interior tank conditions. Following that, the system is pumped. The inspector then performs a walkover inspection of the yard where the drainage field is likely located.

You will receive a report detailing the condition of the system. If the system is damaged or failed, the report also includes the cost to repair or replace.
