Quality water is important for every homeowner. Some of the problems encountered by poor water quality include:
- Health problems
- Unpleasant taste and odor
- Costly treatment systems
Ocala well water inspection by Southland Home Inspections provides complete testing for your city or well water. We know your community or home’s situation and level of risk. For example, wells can contain bacteria and pesticides and they can be a host for other contaminants. Unfortunately, many wells in the Ocala, Florida area are very shallow, so the quality of the water they pump may be questionable. Additionally, older homes on city water built prior to federal and local rules and regulations being put into effect, may have problems. Southland Home Inspections can assure you of the safety and quality of your city or well water, making sure it complies with USDA, FHA & VA loan requirements.
If Your Home Has City Water
Laws require public well water inspection and treatment. However, testing is on the water before it leaves the treatment plant. The pipes through which the water passes may contain lead or other pollutants, or be in poor condition. Therefore, by the time it reaches your home, you have contaminated water.
