The purpose of a well inspection is to identify evident defects or code violations of the well and pump installation. There are limitations due to lack of visibility of underground components and from not removing well pipe and pump from casing.
The information that may be limited is the brand of pump, well depth and age.
Any information that the owner/agent has should be made available to me to clarify these items. The age of the well is very important and every effort should be made to verify this by the owner/agent and provide it to me.
There will be observations made to determine proper well separation distances from points of potential contamination. The pump will be run to determine how many gallons per minute it produces. Due to limitations of time the pump most likely will not be run for more than a few hours.
This inspection is based on proper information given to the me by the responsible party that the represented well is on and the age is from that source. Newer installations have a visible Unique # this is a reliable source of information and can be used when made available or when is visible at the equipment site.
