3 Reasons Why You Should Consider Having a Well Inspection

Are you considering purchasing a cabin Up North in Minnesota that has a private well? Or maybe you own a cabin with a well that you’ve never had inspected. Although Minnesota state law does not require a well inspection or water testing for a property transfer, it might be a good idea to get one anyway. Three things to look for include the condition of the well, the quality of the drinking water, and if there are any unused wells on the property.

Three Reasons You Should Consider a Well Inspection

  • A licensed well professional can visually inspect certain aspects of the well construction and pump installation to evaluate whether they comply with state code.
  • Drinking water testing can find common groundwater contaminants to provide information about the quality of the water and any potential health risks.
  • The inspector can search the property for unused wells that could threaten groundwater or drinking water if not correctly filled and sealed.
