Owning a water well comes with the great responsibility of protecting one of our most precious natural resources. It is the responsibility of the well owner, the water well contractor, the pump technician and the maintenance specialist. Your well is the most valuable asset on your property, and it does require a commitment to maintenance. For most, as long as the tap is running, the end user often has an unknown responsibility for their well. If a well is properly maintained, the maintenance history can be provided upon resale of the property to prove your
commitment to retaining your well as an asset.
Did you know Alberta Environment recommends shock chlorinating your water well 1-2 times per year?
We have worked with Alberta Environment’s guidelines for shock chlorination to create a maintenance program to provide our customers, whether residential or agricultural, with a service that is very progressive in the industry.
We now specialize in performing maintenance and rehabilitation on water wells in an effort to promote general well health.
Base line water well testing prior to coal bed methane exploration found that most water wells in AB have been neglected.
Of 4,200 water wells tested, over 90% were found to have iron-related bacteria and over 80% of them had sulfate-reducing bacteria (which can produce a rotten egg smell).
Annual disinfection, if done routinely, is far more effective than waiting until your water well requires a mechanical rehabilitation. However, if a well has not been routinely treated throughout its life, water well and pumping system rehabilitation will often be required prior to instituting a disinfection program. Monitoring your well will help you see the signs of whether or not your well needs maintenance.
