Water Well Cleaning

Is It Time for Water Well Cleaning?

When is the last time you had your well inspected? If you can’t remember, then it’s likely time to have it done. Professional water well cleaning is a vital part of keeping your system sanitary, running properly, and healthy for your whole family.

In order to ensure years of TROUBLE-FREE service, we recommend a well cleaning maintenance every 10 years. C&J can help. What we do is remove your submersible pump out of the well, lower a high out-put air line into the well, and air lift your years of built-up sediment and gunk out of the top of the well. We can also give you a full pump and tank inspection, water flow check, and water quality analysis.

Some warning signs it’s time for a water well cleaning:

  • Muddy or cloudy water, or water with sediment
  • Water that smells or tastes weird
  • Biological testing that comes back positive
  • Lower water flow or well capacity

Ignoring these signs can cause health problems and/or premature breakdowns of well components. Professional water well cleaning from C&J Well Company can extend the life of your well and keep your water clean and fresh tasting. Contact us today to schedule a 6 Point Inspection.

Can I chlorinate instead of a well cleaning?

Chlorination is an effective way to disinfect your well’s components and your drinking water but is not a cure-all method for water well cleaning. In fact, chlorination can leave behind traces of organic material that can fuel bacterial growth, leading to the need for a professional well inspection and water well cleaning. That means additional time and money for the well owner.
However, disinfection is still a necessary and routine process for all water well owners. You can learn more about the disinfection process and how to complete it yourself by visiting our disinfection blog post.

How C&J Performs a Water Well Cleaning

Water well cleaning is best left to the experts. At C&J, we follow a multi-step process to ensure every part of your well is properly cleaned. After a thorough well inspection, we remove your submersible pump out of the well, lower a high-output air line into the well, and airlift years of built-up sediment and gunk out of the top of the well. This freshens up your old well and redevelops the screen, enabling better flow and better-quality water.

All we ask is that your well is accessible for us to successfully complete our service.
