WELL SERVICES

  • Licensed real estate agents likely know that a home’s most recent water quality test must be shared at the time of sale if the home uses a private well, but there are many other well water regulations and guidelines set by the state that agents will want to keep in mind as well.


  • For most well systems, water pressure is provided and regulated by the well pump. Different pumps have different capacities and the overall rate of flow is directly related to the pump capacity. If your household has a 10-gallon per minute demand, you’ll find that water trickles from the faucet if the pump can only supply five gallons per minute. View our information on low water pressure.


  • Using well water for home use goes without much thought for many people in New England. But for first-time homebuyers and those used to living along public water and sewer lines, buying a home with a well can be intimidating. Understanding the benefits and challenges of the different types of residential wells can help real estate agents provide homebuyers with the information they need and put minds at ease.
