If you’ve fallen in love with a home in the country, be aware that most likely the water source is from a private well. Generally, lenders require a well certification before they will approve a mortgage. Chester County Home Inspections offers a comprehensive well certification service for your convenience. Schedule online now, or call (484) 212-1600.

What Do Well Certifications Include?


  • Inspect and report on the pump and motor if it’s visible
  • Determine the depth of the well if we can find information on the original installation
  • Inspect the electrical circuitry, tank, valves, and associated filtering systems
  • Measure the flow rate at intervals over a 2-hour period looking for changes in recovery time patterns
  • Calculate well delivery and tank draw-down
  • Report all findings with any recommendations

The minimum required supply level is 100 gallons per bedroom plus 100 gallons in two hours or less. What this means for a 4-bedroom house is five gallons of water per minute for two hours.
