TIPS FOR MAINTAINING YOUR WELL
Your well needs maintenance too!
Regular well cleaning assists in preventing damage to the well screen, water pump and plumbing. With our unique Pulsar D10H service truck, we will clean your well of bacterial growth, mineral fouling, silt and sand.
Typical Results Include:
- Improved water flow
- Removal of iron build-up
- Reduction of bacteria bio film
Many wells experience loss of production and water quality problems as a normal process of aging. The causes of these problems are categorized as physical, mineral and biological.
Often the cause of problems in wells is a combination of bacteria growing in bio films and filtering minerals from the water as it passes over the surface. Within this biologically accumulated material, fines from the formation (clay, silt and fine sand) can also become trapped. This trapped, filtered and accumulated material increases costs by reducing the efficiency of the hydraulic connection of the well with the aquifer.
If allowed to proceed, well plugging can result in the total loss of the well. Power use is not the only cost increase; the rehabilitation costs more and takes longer if deposits are allowed to accumulate and harden.
Rehabilitation is a well cleaning process designed to restore lost production capacity or solve quality problems that require the pump to be pulled.
The rehabilitation process will generally involve the use of chemical, physical or thermal treatment, singly or in a combination that is designed to loosen or dislodge fouling, often referred to as deposition. This step can be combined with physical surging, scrubbing and development to move the dislodged material into the well where it can be removed.
