There is a lot that goes into the care of a well. If you use well water, you likely already know what is needed to keep it in good working condition. One of the things that should be done is well chlorination. This is also known as "shocking the well", and is the process of adding chlorine to the water in order to kill harmful bacteria and other contaminants.
Reasons for Well Chlorination
There are plenty of other reasons to have your well chlorinated. A responsible well owner is already familiar with them, but in case you aren't, here are some of the top situations that may warrant shocking the well:
- You have a new pipeline installed or any other type of plumbing work performed
- You have a new well built and new system installed
- You had some recent well repairs
- Bacteria is discovered during water testing
- Flooding has occurred around your property or well
- You see slime or smell a foul odor (likely caused by sulfur, bacteria or iron)
- You have a new holding tank or pump installed
A certified well professional understands the importance of chlorination and will take the necessary time to make sure the job is done right.
