Wells enable property owners to access high-quality water from the underground supply. They require proper maintenance and inspections at least once a year to ensure they are safe to use and function optimally. Here we will briefly discuss some highlights of well inspections.
- What do inspectors look for during well surveys and inspections?
- Why are these surveys so important for well owners?
- How does Fielda help inspectors manage these inspections with ease and efficiency?
What inspectors look for during well inspections: These inspections are conducted by certified water well systems inspectors. During regular assessments, these technicians check the water flow and level during and before pumping. In addition, they inspect the well equipment and components to ensure they are according to code and in good working condition. Water is also checked for bacteria, oily deposits, discoloration, and contamination. Inspectors specifically check the water for deposits like manganese, iron, and sulfides, which can cause persistent corrosion problems and damage to plumbing equipment.
Why these surveys are so important for well owners: These inspections are required regularly; the National Ground Water Association recommends this at least annually. The purpose is to ensure the well water is usable, healthy, and safe for the well system and equipment. Inspecting well components helps owners know if they comply with regulatory requirements. The water tests help them ascertain if any cleaning is required to get rid of contaminants, hard water, etc., to ensure a reliable level of water quality. Well inspectors share a detailed report that owners can use to baseline for any remediation work and as a reference point for future inspections.
How Fielda helps streamline well surveys and inspections: Well inspections require various kinds of audits, including the well structure, the plumbing equipment, and the water that needs to be sampled and tested correctly. This involves detailed logs and may require additional evidence like photos and videos. Fielda is designed to make this entire process quick and seamless. Inspectors can edit and use custom digital forms on the go and capture data in just a few easy clicks. They can also directly add photos and other evidence files from their mobile devices. Preparing and sharing water sample reports, coordinating with other stakeholders, and updating the well owner become extremely simple with Fielda’s custom workflow and instant data access.
