Have you noticed a sudden smell every time you run your water? Has your once crystal-clear glass of water become cloudy and unappealing? You should consider having your water tested as soon as possible, as it might be contaminated.

Before freaking out, here are a few things to check

Before going through the task of disinfecting your well, make sure it isn’t one of these underlying problems that are frequent culprits of water contamination.

  • Have you recently discovered any defects or damage to your well?
  • Is your well properly sealed or has the opening been recently changed?
  • Are your PVC Pipes clogged or cracked?
  • Does your screen filter have holes or is ruptured?
  • Could the contamination actually be coming from your water softener or hot water tank and not your well?

If you have decided that it is necessary to disinfect your well, you can do so yourself or hire a company who specializes in the field.

You can first attempt a decontamination using regular household bleach. You can see the guidelines to drinking water chlorination here. After disinfecting your well twice, and the problem still is not resolved, it may be time to consider the problem being somewhere else.

Other possible causes could be that the groundwater or spring itself is contaminated. A solution to this major problem could be installing a water treatment system, such as a ceramic filter, an automatic chlorinator or a UV purifier.

Another solution can include drilling another well. If this is the option for you, we’ve got you covered. Our experts will be able to guide you in the right direction and provide you with the answers you need. Looking for information on drilling a well? Contact us today and put your mind at ease.
