Our experienced technicians measure the well flow rate over the course of an hour to be sure the well does not run out of water and check for visible signs of wear or damage to key visible components. The inspection begins with a visual examination of the wellhead and pump system to check for any visible signs of wear, damage, or corrosion. We'll also check the electrical connections, pressure switches, and other key visible components to ensure they are functioning properly. If issues are detected, this may involve repairs or upgrades to your well/pump system or other steps may need to be taken to improve the flow and quality of your water supply.
