Regular well cleaning assists in preventing damage to the well screen, water pump and plumbing. With our unique Pulsar D10H service truck, we will clean your well of bacterial growth, mineral fouling, silt and sand.
The table below lists the most common well problems that occur in the aquifer types listed. You will also see the typical maintenance frequency used by municipal well owners to resolve the problems.
|Aquifer Type||Most Prevalent Well Problems*||Major Maintenance Frequency Requirement (Municipal)|
|Alluval||Silt, clay, sand intrusion; iron precipitation; incrustation of screens; biologic fouling; limited recharge; casing failure||2-5 years|
|Sandstone||Fissure plugging; casing failure; sand production; corrosion||6-10 years|
|Limestone||Fissure plugging by clay, silt, and carbonate scale||6-12 years|
|Basaltic Lavas||Fissure and vesicle plugging by clay and silt; some scale deposition||6-12 years|
|Interbedded Sandstone & Shale||Low initial yields; plugging of aquifer by clay and silt; fissure plugging; limited recharge; casing failure||4-7 years|
|Metamorphic||Low initial yield; fissure plugging by silt and clay; mineralization of fissures||12-15 years|
|Consolidated Sedimentary||Fissure plugging by iron and other minerals; low to medium initial yield||6-8 years|
|Semiconsolidated & Consolidated Sedimentary||Clay, silt, sand intrusion; incrustation of screens in sand and gravel wells; fissure plugging of limestone aquifers in the interbedded sand gravel, marl, clay, silt formations; biologic fouling; iron precipitation||5-8 years|
