Well Chlorination
We do chlorination for:
Water with Bacteria
Regular Maintenance
Real Estate Transactions
The EPA says that water with ANY bacteria such as Total Coliform or E. Coli should be treated. The state of NC says that a well with bacteria should be “chlorinated” or “shocked”.
The State laws require an NC Licensed Well Contractor to treat the well. Chlorination of a well is a complex task that requires the assessment, injection, recirculation, runoff, and retest of the well water to complete the job correctly.
It also requires the use of chemicals, that if not handled correctly can result in blindness, chemical burns, or death. Liquid bleach or Clorox should not be used.
The chemicals necessary to treat the well change based on the pH of the well water.
For the above reasons, only a properly certified well contractor should endeavor to chlorinate a well.
