Time based preventive maintenance, generally annual, will keep wells clean so they never experience significant and hardened deposits. Many systems have been very successful in making the transition from rehabilitation when a well has noticeable deterioration to the proactive preventive maintenance approach of keeping wells in peak operating efficiency The key to cost effective maintenance of wells is performing maintenance cleaning without removing any pumping equip- ment. The injection of adequate energy must also reach the lower zones in a well, historically difficult to overcome, with the pump in place. One method of delivering effective energy into a well with the pump in place is to retrofit the well head and equip the well with injection lines directed to the water bearing zones, thereby al- lowing the well to undergo routine service without removing the pump. The importance of recognizing the time based approach cannot be over emphasized, because waiting until problems occur will result in more costly rehabilitation, with un- certain results. A more costly rehabilitation will require the pumping or injection equip- ment to be removed, and more aggressive cleaning treatments will be required to get more complete removal of the deposits. The analogy that is often used is, “You do not wait until your engine starts knocking before you change your oil,” applies here. The benefits of keeping a well clean include: Maintaining peak efficiency and lower pumping energy costs Maintaining the lowest cost of pumping water Maintaining the maximum production rate from a well Minimizing failure of Total Coliform positive samples and elevated HPC’s Preventing discolorations on start up Preventing many Taste and Odor issues Maintaining the original water quality by maintaining the original production profile from a well Fixed budget pricing Wells can be maintained during non-peak demand period Less emergency rehabilitation well cleaning | 800-334-0103 Winter 2014/15 InFlow-Line 43
