How Well-Klean is Restoring Health and Longevity to Wells We Thought were Going or Gone for Good
Restore old wells, mitigate the deterioration of existing wells and recover wells made of wire wrap steel. Well-Klean© is a revolution in restoring health and longevity to wells we thought were dying for good.
What We've Learned:
Most water wells initially get sick in 8-14 years
Most wells are plagued with a matrix consisting of
metal corrosion products
Conventional cleaning methods result in short-term productivity and/or premature failure
Conventional Approaches that Exacerbate Problems and How:
Brush & Bail - spread biology throughout the well
Chlorinate - surface cauterize the biomatter to encapsulate
Jet/One directional energy products - embed biomatter into the filter pack
Acidize with Sulfamic or Phosphoric acid - Residuals are nutrients for bacteria
Biodispersant - usually a glycolic acid which only disperses biomatter and is a food source for bacteria
Dry ice - simply does not clean a thing
How Well-Klean© is Changing the Industry:
Well-Klean© Solutions program is perhaps the most aggressive, effective and durable water well rehabilitation approach available in today’s marketplace.
The Program includes identifying what needs to be done, how it needs to be done, the certified chemistry, processes, procedures, equipment, and the Federal, County and municipal requirements.
The success of the program is attributed to our customers, chemistry and science, and the consulting engineers, as we continue to identify, develop and improve on the variables forming a consortium of best practices.
Accurately assess and prescribe the remediation based on proven principles and empirical successes including chemistry and physics - If necessary, remediate with a biocide, then descale, neutralize/passivate/develop, install pump, properly disinfect.
Let’s get all the loose debris out of the well while not spreading the bacteria throughout the well by using a qualifying biocide and cleaner while brushing. It may seem like overkill, but once we examine the microbiology we can see how effective it can be in this process. Biocide is a cleaner (not a disinfectant, biodispersant or acid) gets into these colonies, breaks them down so they can be drawn out of the well.
Finally, we can get our descaler through the biomatter to dissolve scale. Specified soak time breaks down oxide scale without corrosion.
In one step we neutralize, plunge to break things loose, evacuate the matter and fill while passivating any low carbon steel casing.
It’s now time to install the pump, flush and develop the well, then mix the disinfectant above ground, put it into the well and column pipe, allow it to soak, then flush, pass BacT and coliforms, and away you go for years to come.
As a Well Service Provider
Differentiation! Processes and procedures that work, that result in repeat business. One of the only programs that allows us to actually predict the outcome in advance. More work, more man hours, for higher yields and longer lasting results - everyone is a winner.
