Updike Water Well Drillers

Updike Water Well Drillers is Upstate New York's well shocking expert. Well maintenance is essential to ensure that a well will last. Shocking a well is a relatively inexpensive and straightforward procedure used to control bacteria in water wells. Many forms of bacteria can contaminate wells, but the most common are iron and sulfate-reducing bacteria.

Although not a cause of health problems in humans, bacteria growth will coat the inside of the well casing, water piping and pumping equipment, creating problems such as:

  • Reduced well yield
  • Restricted water flow in distribution lines
  • Staining of plumbing fixtures and laundry
  • Plugging of water treatment equipment
  • Rotten egg odor

Bacteria may be introduced during drilling of a well or when pumps are removed for repair and laid on the ground. On the other hand, iron and sulfate-reducing bacteria (as well as other bacteria) can exist naturally in groundwater. A well creates a direct path for oxygen to travel into the ground where it would not normally exist. When a well is pumped, the water flowing in will also bring in nutrients that enhance bacterial growth. Wells can also be contaminated with harmful bacteria such as fecal coliforms. Shocking a well is the most effective method to get rid of them.
