Just because water is coming out of the faucet does not mean your well is “fine”.

Well inspections can detect signs that the pressure system or pump are beginning to fail (and when they fail, there is no water).

Pressure systems are a quick and easy fix (around $500-1000).
Pumps are a bigger repair (and usually several thousand).

Pressure systems that are not working efficiently cost more in electricity and put more strain on your pump, shortening its lifespan).
