Your Trusted Experts for Well Shocking Treatments in Calgary & Across Alberta 

Water well shock chlorination is a simple treatment to disinfect groundwater wells and inactivate harmful bacteria within the well and distribution system. It is a relatively inexpensive and straightforward procedure to control iron and sulphur bacteria in wells. Well shocking basically involves adding a large amount of chlorine to the water in the well and pumping it through the distribution system. The chlorinated water is left in the system till it is completely disinfected. While you can do it yourself, we strongly advise hiring our licensed experts at Aaron Drilling in Calgary to do a shocking procedure for you. We will ensure your water is treated quickly and effectively and perform every step with all necessary safety measures in place.

Since Aaron Drilling is committed to the professional development and treatment of water which is one of our most precious natural resources. We have worked closely with Alberta Environment to employ proven methods that provide a far more effective treatment than shock chlorination to your well.

This program is set to cater to a clientele that enjoys the peace of mind that their well is being taken care of on a yearly basis in an effort to promote general well health. The service is typically a 3-day process (of which you will be out of water) and is done from beginning to end by one of our qualified technicians. While we are there, we attain an annual window into your system and your water well performance, as this can prove to be vital information in long-term data collection. A history of well maintenance can then also be supplied when the home is put up for sale to show the potential buyers your commitment to your well, arguably the most valuable asset on your property.

When Should You Shock Chlorinate Your Well

Well shocking is an effective and affordable way to treat water and make it safe for drinking and usage. It is best to schedule this process at least once every year to prevent biofouling which is the build-up of slime inside your toilet tank. Some other instances to shock chlorinate your well water are:

  • When you install a new well

  • When your well and water distribution system is repaired, cleaned or pumped

  • When your well has flooded to kill any disease-causing germs and organisms that might have entered during the flood

  • When the lab tests show the presence of coliform bacteria
