WATER WELL REHABILITATION - IRON BACTERIA IS OUR SPECIALTY!

So, what does Valley Pump do differently with our water well rehabilitations that others don’t? We base our treatments off of science. We want to see what the casing looks like. We want to know what type of bacteria are in the well. Is there a lot of iron bacteria? What about manganese? We want every piece of information that we can get before we decide on a treatment so we know that it is the best possible treatment for the specific well we are working on. There are numerous cases where we have “brought wells back from the dead” because we were willing to put in the time and effort that other drilling companies weren’t willing to do with their water well rehabilitations.

Video, Sample, Science
We take pride in the amount of information that we gather to base our rehabilitation treatment recommendations off of. To begin our water well rehabilitation process, we will take a down hole video of the well. A lot of times we can see bacteria, iron bacteria most often, blocking the perforations in the casing. Our innovative piece of machinery that does the down hole video also has a sample trap so we can collect a sample while already down the hole. This can often reaffirm that there is iron bacteria present, and/or show us what other bacteria is in the well. The sample that we collect will be sent off to a lab so we can find out exactly what is down the hole and more importantly, its food source.

Rehabilitation Recommendation
We know that all wells are different and should be treated so. That is why we gather so much information so we can make sure that we fix the problem with your specific well. After we compile all the information that we can get about your well, we will make a recommendation that best suits your specific needs. If there are massive amounts of encrustation on the casing, we may use one of our jetting tools. If there is a lot of iron bacteria in the well, during the rehabilitation we will use a chemical product line called Redi Clean that actually eats up iron bacteria. We don’t believe in the “dump and run” theory, so we use mechanical work with our chemicals. We want to work the chemicals as far back in to the gravel pack as possible, because that is where the bacterial colonies thrive. We use surge blocks and brushes to achieve agitation.

The results we get speak for themselves.
