Thread: unclogging well point

  1. #1

    Default unclogging well point

    I think I may have a clogged wellpoint. Any suggestions for unclogging it?? I have heard of using some type of acid. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    There are well cleaning chemicals made specifically for that, any old acid may damage your well materials. IIRC Johnson makes NuWell.

    Check with pump, plumbing or well supply houses or well drillers.

    I can't find it even on Johnson Screen's site. So here is another that I used to know a few years ago and planned on using for well cleaning/rehabilitation, after much research;

    Haha There a joke around here, when you use that stuff you will need a new well. Never had much luck with it

    When we have a well that needs cleaning because of say, a calcium build up, or lots of iron.
    We have used it with very good success.
