Rehabilitating a Water Well, Air Lift Service Call


Air lifting a well, clearing out sediment, debris and contaminants.

This is a common service call that I’m happy to do, though they can get a bit mucky. I’m “air lifting” a water well to purge it of sediment and debris that builds up 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 as needed or as part of a routine maintenance schedule for regular customers. The process can be done in less than a day. I send a high pressure burst of compressed air down the line which will forcefully lift all water and sediment up and out. Then the well is left to rest and recharge and the process is repeated. It’s done several several times over a few hours, but for this video it’s just the fun parts and gave me a chance to try out my new drone. Pardon the wobbly camera work!

 Before and After shot of this water system revamp shows how much I like a nice, tidy, uncluttered configuration at chest height for easy access. #waterfilter #waterpump #watersystem #highriver #okotoks #offthegrid
 Another #airlift job. Always fun, usually mucky, definitely important. #wellservices #highriver #okotoks #offthegrid
 Dewatering project, Alberta, Pump, Float Switch, Discharge Line. Rain, runoff and meltwater collected in backyard, pumped up to storm drains out front rather than creating a swamp.
 Another re & re project, upgraded to constant pressure system, air-injection/oxidizing filtration and a tidy, easy access control panel. #waterpump #grundfos #waterfiltration #highriver #okotoks #blackie #vulcan #nanton #alberta
 In 25 years of providing water well services, I've never come across a pump issue quite like this. Rock in the well pump! That's one tenacious pebble. Shouldn't have better able to get in there in the first place, let alone jam up the pump. But that's why I love my job - every day is different. This mysterious "no water" call came over the summer. Everything worked out perfectly in the end! #waterwell #wellpump #wellservices #highriver #okotoks
