I inspected a home with the well in the basement. The 18" clay tile casing ending 3’ above the floor. The only cap was a heavily rusted steel plate that rested unfastened on top of the tile. The supply pipe had a slot cut for it with no seal. Does this need to have a secured cover and pitless adapter? When I removed the plate the water surface appeared brackish. I recomended the buyer have a purity test performed but he said no!
Any sugestions on the course of action I should persue?
