Chlorination Systems for Your Water Well?
Water-Pro installs and maintains chlorination systems to ensure the safety of your drinking water. Chlorination systems are an essential component for any water well system. As our communities grow, it’s important to treat well water to remove harmful contaniments like bacteria, parasites, fecal material and other chemicals that may find their way into the ground water. Homes that rely on city water, or neighborhood wells won’t need chlorination systems as the public water treatment facility they use already has one. In more rural areas this isn’t the case and it’s recommended that you treat your water, and inspect your system on a regular basiis. When combined with a filtration system chlorination systems provide a cost-effective way to deal with odors, iron and other metals that can be found in your well water.
Benefits of Water Chlorination Systems
When installed with your water well, chlorination systems offer many benefits. Water-Pro recommends that you periodically have your water tested by a professional to determine the state of your water and the best solution, as over time your situation could change. Some of the benefits of water chlorination are:
- Chlorination systems for water wells are not expensive and easy to install
- They require minimal maintenance. Depending on the type of chlorination system this entails adding chlorine to the system every few months, either in tablet or powder form or adding chlorine bleach (sodium hypochlorite)
- Chlorination systems typically don’t require electricity to operate which contributes to their low cost of operation.
How do Chlorinators Work?
Chlorinators are relatively simple devices that are designed to introduce small, controlled amounts of chlorine to a gravity fed water system in order to disinfect water for use in the home. The most common chlorinators use a process called “shock” chlorination. As water from your well is pumped to a central chamber it comes in contact with chlorine tablets or pellets that dissolve slowly into the water. That water is then allowed to flow into another tank where it is diluted even more prior to being pumped to the home for consumption.
As with any water well treatment, it’s important to have your water tested by a professional. Our technicians will test for bacteria, alkalinity, iron, manganese, PH, hydrogen sulfide and other dissolved solids. They’ll also determine the right system to meet the PSI of your system, and the flow rate of your well pump. Knowing this will allow us to recommend the proper chlorination system that will address the chlorine demand based on your water and if a contact tank is required.
