Bad Water? Dirty or Muddy Water? Clean Your Well with Ultra High Pressure Hydro Cleaning


Would you describe the water coming from your well as bad water, dirty water, or muddy water? Do you have trouble getting your clothes clean when you do laundry? If your water has any of these symptoms, you may need to have your well hydro-cleaned and treated.

Walter’s Well Pump & Tank Service now offers hydro-cleaning, a well cleaning and purification technique the forces water under extremely high pressure through the well. How much water? Approximately 2000 gallons.  We have a tanker truck just for the purpose of bringing the water to the site. How high is the pressure?  The water is forced through a 2” line at the rate of 600 gallons per minute. Think of it as industrial pressure washing, ultra-high pressure cleaning of your well drop pipe, and the well casing.

Once the well casing and drop pipe are clean, your well can be treated with chlorine, then a filtration system can be put in place.

How do you know your well needs hydro cleaning?

There are several different situations that would give you a hint, sometimes a very strong hint. For example:

  • – Bad smelling water (aka “bad water” or “dirty water”)
  • – Change of flavor of your water over time
  • – Obvious discoloration of water
  • – Build up in sinks tubs & shower walls more than normal

For some it is obvious that their well needs cleaning because there is so much discoloration in the water, so much sediment making its way into the house plumbing, or such a strong smell and or taste. The gradual build up of bacteria and algae can cause the build up of a sludge, or gunk, in the bottom of a well. We’ve seen it 10, 20, even 30 feet deep. If this is the case, your well pump is pumping water from this sludge pond into the house plumbing, and you’re going to notice it.

For others it may not be obvious at all. Since the taste of your water can change very gradually over time, and because it may not appear to be discolored, you may not notice it, as your taste buds slowly adjust with the gradual change in the water. One clue in this case is when you drink water at other people’s homes, or at work or in a restaurant, and their water tastes better to you. You may also notice that you can't get your laundry as clean as you used to.

If you have any reason to suspect the quality of your water and that your well needs cleaning, you don’t have to jump to that conclusion. Call Walter’s Well Pump and Tank Service to arrange a water quality test. That’s the first step. With our down-hole (down well) video camera, we get a close-up view of the interior of your well. If there is no damage to the well, but it suffers from build up of bacteria and the growth of algae, then we can go forward with ultra high pressure hydro-cleaning, leaving your well spic and span clean, and restoring proper water quality for you and your family.
