Old Well Rehabilitation

  • chemical treatment of all types of wells
  • redeveloping of existing drilled wells to bring back or increase the flow rate of the water
  • replacement of old well casing and installation of liners if required

Well Head Upgrades

Most water well pressure systems have the water line connection below ground surface at the well casing. Today's standard is the use of a pitless adapter, yet many older connections remain in existence using a large diameter open working chamber of steel or concrete. As these types of installations age they have the potential to allow surface contamination and insects to enter the well. It is encouraged to have this type of installation converted over to a pitless adapter.

Pump Tests

     A test may be required when:
  • obtaining a loan or mortgage using your property as collateral
  • expanding your business or firm
  • purchase of a property with a well

Flow tests can be performed on all types of wells. Although most wells should have a flow rate recorded at the time of construction it may still be in the best interest of the purchaser to have an updated test done. Age of the well itself and new construction in the area can both alter the flow rate of a well.

Chlorination of Wells & Pressure Systems

A poor water sample does not necessarily mean your source of ground water has gone bad. Bacteria could have been introduced through improper maintenance, from lack of use, or flood waters. During a chlorination process it is recommended to try and determine the cause so contamination will not happen again.
Proper introduction and concentration of the chlorine are both important to insure all bacteria are reached in the system.
