  • “run-off” the treatment
  • lastly, we INCLUDE a basic bacteria Water Test!*

Our chlorination service starts at $550 for wells up to 400 ft deep.

We charge a wasted trip fee if we arrive on-site and cannot complete the job due to circumstances beyond our control. For instance, if we need access to the house but the key is missing or doesn’t work.
