Did your most recent well inspection uncover the presence of insects? Bad news.
Whether your well casing is too close to the ground, your well cap is missing or broken, or there’s a bad weld at the seam of your well casing, there’s an endless list of defects that insects can exploit to find their way into your well. Unfortunately, insects may be carrying a number of dangerous pathogens, which means your well is contaminated as soon as they crawl inside of it.
So, now what?
How to Decontaminate Your Well From Insects
Once you’ve observed that your private water well has an insect problem, you need to:
- Vacuum every inch of the well to remove all insects and larvae.
- Aggressively chlorinate the well to neutralize contaminants.
- Treat the water to restore it to safe drinking levels.
- Identify the insects’ point of entry and seal it off so they cannot return in the future.
Of course, the majority of private well owners do not have the resources to perform a thorough well decontamination on their own. That would require specialized equipment and experience. Fortunately, Goold Wells & Pumps is here to provide you with comprehensive well inspection and well cleaning services.
