The water supply to your home is one of the most important mechanical elements to your happy and safe enjoyment of the property you intend to purchase. The water supply can either be a public supply such as town water or private well system whether community or independently owned. It is very important to most homeowners to have both safe and adequate water to their homes. Each household typically uses several thousand gallons of water a month! Replacement of a water main or well system can be extremely expensive and should be considered carefully when evaluating your purchase. Old or undersized water supply piping can be a source of aggravation and health safety. Wells, which can only be evaluated on a limited basis by our inspection, require safe installation and often-ongoing maintenance. The type and condition of your water main or well could be an element easily overlooked without proper professional home inspection training and experience.
