So that the water in your household well has always been clean and tasty, do not forget to clean it regularly. Otherwise, the walls of the well may eventually be moss over time, which will gradually destroy concrete rings. And then you have to spend money on expensive repair.
If you have an open-type well on the site, it is desirable to brush its walls every year (either in a year). Well, having a lid, it is enough to carry out cleaning prevention every three years.
To start, throw away the water with the deep pump. Then the surface of the concrete rings and the bottom of the well will need to be cleaned of garbage and disinfected with chlorinated water. But after such a processing, do not forget that water from the well will have to boil for a week.
The annual cleaning of the well is carried out in early spring, when all the snow has already melted. Diluted in a bucket of water, manganese is poured into a well and left for an hour. Then the water from the well must be pumped into a special container. This water will then need to be poured over the well shaft.
If you find defects on the walls of the well, it will be necessary to carry out repairs before cleaning it.
Surfaces of concrete rings previously cleaned with a metal brush must be coated with a mortar with a high content of cement.
It is also advisable to wash the gravel from the bottom of the well or replace it with a new one.
And after these procedures, proceed to clean and disinfect the well in the manner described above.
