Have you noticed a change in the quality of your well water, such as odd smells, tastes, or even discoloration? Occasionally, certain types of bacteria will take hold in a well, and cause changes in the taste and smell of your water. This may seem scary, but a simple well cleaning may be all that is needed to restore the quality of your well water.
Pulling the pump and sending a camera down the well to inspect it will identify any major issues taking place. If the condition of the well is in good shape, a simple brushing of the well with chlorine will often remedy the problem. There are also stronger chemicals available that we can also use to disinfect the well when more aggressive and difficult-to-kill bacteria are present. All chemicals we use for cleaning and disinfected wells are manufactured by Cotey Chemical, and are NSF rated and designed for potable water use.
It should be noted that wells should be regularly cleaned in order to maintain the quality of your well water. We are happy to perform regularly scheduled cleanings of your well, so that will never again have to worry about the quality and safety of your home’s or business’s water.
