If the home you’re buying has a private well, I always recommend you get a well inspection. This typically costs about $200 for the water flow test, which tells you how many gallons per minute the well produces, and you can also order a water quality test, which costs about $70, and tests for nitrates and bacteria. We are very fortunate to have good water in this area, but there are some wells that a low producers, meaning they only produce a few gallons per minute. Anything less than about 3 gallons per minute might require a 1,000 cistern, which is a storage tank. Most wells in the area produce 8 to 18 gallons per minute. But even 4 gallons per minute is more than enough and you’re not likely to run out of water unless your watering fruit trees and flowers all day in addition to washing clothes, dishes, and taking showers inside.
