If you need to drill a water well or need water pump service for your well in Santa Monica, it is nice to know a little bit about your city.

It is famed as a beach resort town and the Santa Monica Pier is one of its iconic attractions. Currently over 90,000 people live in its 8.4 square miles of land. It was incorporated as a city in 1886.

In addition to the pier, the city abounds in cultural resources and attractions. The Santa Monica Louff Hippodrome is the official name for the famous carousel on the Santa Monica Pier that is a National Historic Landmark.

Water Well Inspection Service in Santa Monica

Because a water well is a private water supply, testing the quality of the water is the responsibility of the property owner. Contaminants from the soil can affect the taste and appearance of the water, as well as its fitness for drinking. Occasionally bacteria can find their way into a well and cause the water to be unsuitable for consumption. It is important to have the water tested at least once a year, after a flood, or when there is a change in the taste or appearance of the water. While this may be done using a do-it-yourself test kit, it is important to contact a qualified professional should the results show any contamination.
