Well Water Chlorination in Maryland

Providing Well Water Chlorination Systems in Annapolis, Columbia, Bethesda, Rockville, Germantown & the Surrounding Areas in Maryland

The water that comes into your home should be crystal-clear, fresh-tasting, and odorless. It is important for our water to be free of pathogenic microorganisms and bacteria in order to keep us safe and healthy in our own homes. Your well should be tested for bacteria yearly. If bacteria is present, most often the first step is to have a professional chlorinate your well. Chlorination is the most commonly used process for eliminating disease-causing bacteria in water.

Our professional staff will inspect your well cap and top of well casing. An improper well cap can allow insects to “nest” inside the cap and create bacterial contamination in the well. Water Doctor offers sealed, vented well caps that will help ensure the safety of your drinking water. Our licensed pump installers will also inspect the top of your well casing to look for cracks or corrosion that can lead to surface water intrusion, discolored water, and presence of pathogens.

Are you interested in ensuring the safety of your drinking water? Call our team today at 877-677-9275 and schedule well chlorination in Annapolis, Columbia, Bethesda, Rockville, Germantown, or the surrounding areas in Maryland.

How Often Should You Chlorinate a Well?

Unless your well hasn’t been tested in 3-5 years, chlorinating a well is not an annual task. However, there are other reasons that would make it necessary to chlorinate it more than once every few years!

Here are some typical situations when a well chlorination is needed:

  • When there is a presence of bacteria
  • In the case of a new well or a well that has been recently repaired
  • When the distribution system has been exposed
  • After contamination from flood water

If you are still unsure about whether or not you need to have your well chlorinated, we encourage you to call Water Doctor at 877-677-9275. One of our many trained professionals will be able to better assist you with your water needs. 

How Long Should You Wait to Use Water After You Chlorinate a Well?

Once you have decided to let a professional well water company like Water Doctor, you are going to have to wait anywhere from 12-24 hours before you can run any of the water. You can’t drink, bathe, cook, or clean with any of the water until the timeframe is up. Once you run the water (after the allotted time period) you should keep running it until you can’t smell anything.

If there is bacteria in your well water in Germantown, MD or the surrounding areas, it’s best to leave it to the professionals at Water Doctor to keep you safe. Call 877-677-9275 or contact us online today!
