Chlorination is a process that cleans, disinfects and refreshes a water well system. There are many resons to chlorinate a well:
1. Cleaning Your Water System- Chlorination can help clean years of iron and scale build up in your water lines. The chlorine will break down the built up particles allowing lines to be pumped cleaned.
2. Disinfection- Chlorine is a chemical that can kill bacteria such as E.coli and Coliform. E.coli and Coliform are bateria that can survive in low oxygen areas such as a water well. Typically Bacteria will grow in a well that has been stagnant for a period of time. It is recommended that private water well owners test their water once per year for bacteria.
3. Refreshing the Well- Just as with water lines, iron and scale build up can occur in the water well causing loss of production and water quality change. Treating a water well with chlorine will break down these particles allowing them to be pumped out.
When Chlorinating a well make sure to BYPASS any water treatment systems. DO NOT RUN CHLORINE THROUGH HOT WATER! Chlorine becomes a gas when heated and CAN be very harmful. DO NOT DRINK WATER DURING CHLORINATION PROCESS!
Blazek Pump and Well recommends chlorinating your water well once per year.
