Air Lifting a Water Well – Vulcan, AB


Clearing out sediment, debris and contaminants to bring an old well back to life.

On this job site I’m “air lifting” a water well to purge it of sediment and debris built up over a few years if inactivity (it was drilled years ago but never put into service). With a new greenhouse operation in the works, this old well turned out to be a great producer in a perfect location. Over time, any given well can become clogged and sometimes contaminated. If your well doesn’t seem to be producing like it used to, that’s often the reason. I perform this air-lifting service quite regularly to bring old, tired or neglected water wells back to life. The process is repeated several times over a few hours, but for this video I just explain the process and then get to the fun stuff. It’s like fireworks with water!
