Well Rehabilitation

Recover lost capacity, increase efficiency, and improve water quality

 

The water supply in our region is plentiful but mineral deposits build over time effecting the capacity of a well. When a well doesn't make enough water to keep up, some contractors skip straight to starting over with a new well. While well replacement is still necessary in some cases, we can often rehabilitate a well to improve the well capacity. We will:

 

  • Measure your well's current performance

  • Mechanically scrub the well screen with brushes and a descaler

  • Monitor the PH over time

  • Reinstall the pump and flush the well before putting it back in service. 

In cases where there is debris in a well or unusually high amounts of deposits in a well, we can employ the use of an in-house down hole inspection camera to help remedy the problem more efficiently.

Remedy persistent bacteria


Chlorination or disinfection may help for the short term. A long-term solution requires the removal of the outer layer of the colony. We can remedy persistent bacteria problems in a well with the same rehabilitation process. The acidification of the well and mechanical brushing can remove the problem completely. 

 

Please call 219.696.0455 to discuss your options.
