Are you considering buying a home in Culpeper County VA? If so, put a well inspection high on your list of inspections to have done.
Obviously, if your home is tied into the city or county water system, this inspection is not needed, but many homes in the area have wells on the property as the primary, and often the only means of providing water to the home.
If that’s the case where the property you’re interested in buying is concerned, then a well inspection is a lot more important than you might first think. After all, before you sign up for a fifteen or a thirty-year mortgage, you want to know exactly what you’re getting yourself into, right? And if the home you’re considering has water issues, you need to know that before you sign on the dotted line.
As a well-respected locally owned and operated company, we’re frequently asked to perform both Culpeper County VA well inspections and septic tank inspections, and we highly recommend availing yourself of both services if you’re genuinely interested in a property in the area.
It gives you tremendous peace of mind and the ability to buy with confidence. Not to mention the fact that if problems are found, it’s a great way to negotiate the price down so you’ll have funds available to deal with those issues.
Many people don’t fully appreciate how complex wells truly are. The reality is that there’s a lot of infrastructure involved with pulling water out of the ground and delivering it to your faucets on demand. Our Culpeper County VA well inspection service is comprehensive, and involves an end to end check of every component of your well, including, but not limited to:
- The well itself and the structure that surrounds and encloses it
- The cap on the well
- The pump that moves the water from the ground and into your home
- All the pipes, valves, and fittings associated with that
- Arrestors and electrical wires
- The control box and associated switches
- The pressure gauge
- And more
The actual test doesn’t take long to perform, although if there’s a problem found, it may take a bit longer to trace it back to its source. Not to worry though, we’ve been in the business since 1987, and our technicians are some of the most experienced you’ll find anywhere.
Before you know it, we’ll identify the problem and give you a full report so you’ll know exactly what it will take to get it fixed.
If you already own your own home, we recommend having your well inspected on an annual basis so you’re not surprised by the sudden, inexplicable loss of water. Whichever the case, help is just a phone call away. Give our office a call today!
