22 May Purchasing a Home with a Well
If you are purchasing a home that already has a well located on the property, there are several things that you need to keep in mind in order to ensure you are happy with your purchase. By doing your research before you make a purchase, you can be sure the water is safe and able to meet your needs. To that end, here are four steps you should take before making a purchase:
- Step 1: Identify Potential Issue. The groundwater used for your well is a shared resource that can be affected by a variety of factors in the area. Contact a well driller such as Apex to find out if there are any known water issues in the area.
- Step 2: Research Regulations. Knowing more about the rules and regulations in place for your state and your municipality will help you to better determine how they might affect your water.
- Step 3: Have the Water Tested: If the seller is not required to test the water, you should have it tested yourself before making a purchase.
- Step 4: Test the Well. Even if your water test comes out clear, it is also a good idea to test the actual well. This way, you can be sure it is in good shape and is not in need of repair before you make a purchase.
