Only a PHI Enhanced Well Inspection comes with Welgard Protection 6 months FREE!

Well ground water sources can provide drinking water of the highest quality when maintained. Owning a private house-hold water well allows homeowners the ability to control their own water supply. This ownership also comes with the responsibility of keeping the well and its components in good working order.

Routine inspections of a well system can help ensure it is operating properly, prolong its useful life, and protect your investment. Most importantly, inspections can protect your health by discovering issues that could result in water quality problems presenting unwanted health risks.

What does this inspection involve?

The equipment check involves physically inspecting many components looking for wear, cracks, and breakage along with proper functionality of each component. Some of the components inspected:

  • Pump Analysis
  • Well Casing & Cap
  • Pressure Tank
  • Valves, Pressure Gauge and Pressure Switch
  • Electrical Wiring, Amp Draw and Grounding/Bonding

Flow Test

The flow test will determine how much water is available and how fast the well can recover from extended use measured in GPM (gallons per minute) and PSI (pressure). Most people underestimate the volume of water needed for a household. Showers, dishwashers, drinking water, cooking, laundry, and bathroom facilities all add up to a staggering amount of water usage. The average person uses 80-100 gallons of water per day. Multiply that by your family of 4, and your daily water usage could exceed 400 gallons per day. This test will be conducted to determine the system output along with a check of the pump and pressure tank performance over a 30-90 minute length of time.

Your Report

A detailed report provided by Welgard will be emailed to you within 24 hours. This report will include specifics about the condition of the system, pressure, flow and yield readings. It will be written clearly so that you can understand and take action based on the recommendations included.

An enhanced well inspection with Welgard Protection will provide peace of mind and help you avoid costly breakdowns.

Note: A flow or yield test is not necessarily indicative of how the well will perform; its only to be used as a guide as to how much water the well may yield. This is because it is a snapshot of the well, not a long range test. There are many variables, such as the water table at that time, the type of aquifer, and the specific usage or demands of the well.
