When do you disinfect a well?

Disinfection is only used when a new well is drilled, flooding occurs, after a well is serviced, if harmful bacterias are found, and if the well has been sitting without use for an extended period of time.  The Water System Council recommends that you have a licensed well contractor make any repairs to your well and disinfect it afterward.  You can also disinfect your well, but before you do, you should read this information sheet.
