Water Well Inspection Service in Santa Ynez

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.
