A well inspection is a good idea if you are considering the purchase of a property or would like peace of mind regarding your well system. A routine inspection of your water well system can help ensure it is operating correctly, prolong its useful life, and protect your investment. Most importantly, water inspections can protect your health by discovering issues that could result in water quality problems. Identifying these issues is an essential factor in reducing potential health risks. We happily perform well inspections throughout the Greater Sudbury area, including Lively, Chelmsford, Val Caron, Hanmer, Garson, Espanola and beyond.
Your well should be evaluated annually by a certified water well technician. There are also warning signs to watch for that could signal a problem within your well system. We'll be sure to educate you on what these warning signs are so that you can proactively get them resolved if any occur.
An eye for detail and experienced professionalism is what we bring to every job. Our team at Rhude Well Drilling always takes the time to do a thorough assessment. We'll be happy to answer any questions you have and clearly document our findings in a concise, easy-to-understand manner.

We will inspect your well using the following process
Using our high quality, submersible camera with advanced recording equipment, we will thoroughly examine your well. We can inspect any well that comes our way, even to a depth of 500 feet!
Our camera is attached to a mono-conductor cable. It allows for real-time observation of your well casing and well screen to search for cracks or holes. It will also help us to identify areas of corrosion. Finding out that your well casing needs to be replaced could save you thousands of dollars compared to having an entirely new well dug. When inspecting your well, we also look at your well record, well location, well cap, drainage, your well pump and the water components inside your home such as the pressure tank and faucet strainer.
System inspection. We will conduct an inspection to assess the overall condition of your pump system. This inspection includes an evaluation of all accessible parts of your well system in search of potential or existing deficiencies. From your pressure tank and related plumbing infrastructure, electrical controls and wiring to your wellhead.
After the physical inspection, we will conduct electrical tests and check for the continuity of your motor windings. We will run your pump system to monitor the motor current (amps) to ensure that your system is performing correctly before conducting a flow test.
Well Testing. A well flow test is highly recommended before purchasing a property because it will help you determine the well's actual yield in gallons per minute. Your well test will measure the amount of water being pumped out of the well while also monitoring how much the water level drops. The results will help you know if the well can supply enough water for you and your family to live comfortably.
Another good reason for a well test is to check for sediment or naturally occurring minerals in the water as it is being pumped. The well test will tell you if there are potential problems or any problems that already exist. Depending on the results, a filtration system may be needed to reduce the minerals or sediment for better quality water.
Water Portability Tests. Testing your well water at least once a year to ensure your water is clean and safe is an excellent practice. A potable water test will check for certain bacterias to ensure your water is clean and safe to drink.
