If your home is on a private well or another water source, then you know how important it is to disinfect the water. Since your well isn’t part of a public utility, it’s not treated for bacteria and other organisms that will make you sick. 

Even if you think your well water looks clean, you’d be surprised at what’s living in it. Shock well disinfection is one option that can help you ensure that your family’s water quality is safe.

What Does Shock Well Disinfection Do?

Shock well disinfection is a one-time water treatment. The chlorine solution is piped through the entirety of the water system to clean and purify the water. This method makes well water safe for drinking, washing, and bathing. 

Why Should You Shock Your Water?

When you install a new pump, it’s important to shock the water to start with a clean water tank system. If you’ve received the results of a lab test and it shows that your well water is harboring bacteria, then it’s unsafe to drink. You must shock your water to remove harmful bacteria before using it in the household. Maintenance and floodwater infiltration are two more good reasons for water well shock treatment.
