Before disinfecting your Well, investigate and correct possible sources of contamination such as:

  1. Surface water running into or collecting near the Well.
  2. A defective or improperly installed Well Casing, cover or pipe connection which would allow surface water, animals, insects or plant material to enter the Well. (Well casing not sealed).
  3. Nearby septic systems or manure piles, which are within 30M (100ft) of the well.
  4. Openings in the well seal.
  5. Well casing not being deep enough.
  6. A source of contamination not related to the Well Construction.
