Generally, water testing is recommended for properties with well water. However, the decision to have the water tested can include many factors. For peace of mind, it's not a bad idea to know the chemistry of the water you and your family consume on a daily basis.

About Water Quantity Testing for Well Water
Water quantity testing is only offered with the home inspection and not as a stand- alone service.
Quantity testing (flow testing) can be done upon request for any client. It must be scheduled before the date of the inspection, since it takes between 3-4 hours to complete and includes the 3-4 hour flow test to insure the well is in perfect working order and that the flow is acceptable for your particular application.
