All Well Testing Is Not Equal. Test The System

A lot of companies do well tests to verify well production but very few and none I know of locally do a system check.  The pump and pressure tank together with the various components that make up a water system are checked for quality and condition when we do a well test.  Additionally we note whether the system is suitable for the intended purpose.  We recently did a service call for a new homeowner;  he had just bought an existing home and was moving in but had no water!  His problem:  A frozen water line. The bigger problem was;  the water system was not designed for year around use.  The water line was too shallow to keep from freezing; a costly-unexpected fix. Certain parties in a real-estate transaction would prefer that we not mention the short comings of the water system but the prospective buyer who is paying for the test should be advised of potential problems. Well tests are done to protect the buyer from problems with the well; we go a few steps further to protect the buyer. — David Nequette
