WELL REPAIR

Some wells may become deteriorated and in need of repair. Such repairs typically consist of the above mentioned Rehabilitation steps (chlorinating, blowing out) and also inspecting the well column with a down-the-hole camera. This inspection allows us to see where problem areas are.

If repairs are feasible, we can install 4 inch PVC plastic liner pipe inside the 6 inch well column. Attached to the bottom of the liner pipe is a ribbed rubber packer that settles under the problem areas of the well. This liner pipe eliminates the water in the well from coming in contact with any problem areas in the walls of the well or with existing well casing. Such repairs as these require the approval of the county Environmental Health Inspector.
