If you are asking whether that could have made your well stop producing, I cannot see how.Originally Posted by Willy
If your well is not producing at all, I cannot see why they should not. I just looked on my empty NW-100 container from a few weeks ago, and it is clearly stated there that "pills sink to the bottom before dissolving", and there is no mention of any maximum depth.Originally Posted by Willy
Someone else here might have a far better answer for you to consider, but I would not do that to my own well. The water coming out of your well is as clean as it gets, obviously, but lake water definitely is not. When my daughters were still quite young, I had some difficulty getting them into any natural body of water after I had answered their questions about where fish pee and ducks poop!Originally Posted by Willy
When I used some tablets to clear the point screen in a shallow well a few years ago, the instructions that came with that particular brand, whatever it was, said to drop the tablets into the well and cap it off overnight. I do not know whether Nu-Well has tablets that do the same, but those created some kind of foamy pressure that actually forced the acid or whatever to the bottom of the well and on through the screen. I have no idea how long point screens are supposed to last, and maybe putting pressure on yours would be a bad thing. But, I would sure do something like that long before ever pumping surface water down into my well.
Hope that helps a bit ...
