Shock Chlorination

 Owning a water well comes with the great responsibility of protecting one of our most precious natural resources. Your well is the most valuable asset on your property, and it does require a commitment to maintenance. For most, as long as the tap is running, the end user often has an unknown responsibility for their well. If a well is properly maintained, the maintenance history can be provided upon resale of the property to prove your commitment to retaining your well as an asset.

Did you know Alberta Environment recommends shock chlorinating your water well about once a year?

Shock chlorination is a relatively inexpensive and straightforward procedure used to control bacteria in water wells. Shocking your well can help with staining plumbing fixtures and laundry, plugged water treatment equipment, "rotten egg" smell, as well as it's the most effective way at getting rid of bacteria while it is Ecoli or coliforms.

Shock chlorination is performed by mixing a large amount of sodium hypochlorite into the water, waiting 24 hours then flushing your system. The water should not be used during this time.

We work with Alberta Environment’s guidelines for shock chlorination to create a maintenance program to provide our customers, whether residential, agricultural or commercial with a service that is turn key in the industry.

We specialize in performing maintenance and rehabilitation on water wells in an effort to promote general well health.

Understanding your chemical test results

Alarming Stats

  •  Base line water well testing found that most water wells in AB have been neglected.
  • Of 4,200 water wells tested, over 90% were found to have iron-related bacteria and over 80% of them had sulfate-reducing bacteria (which can produce a rotten egg smell).

The Solution

Annual disinfection, if done routinely, is far more effective than waiting until your water well requires a mechanical rehabilitation. However, if a well has not been routinely treated throughout its life, water well and pumping system rehabilitation will often be required prior to instituting a disinfection program. Monitoring your well will help you see the signs of whether or not your well needs maintenance.
