    Question Is it safe to run chlorine water into acid neutralizer from well shock treatment?

    I am going to shock treat my well. I had the well pump replaced and my water is testing positive for coliform bacteria. I did not know if I should bypass the acid neutralizer or if it would be Ok to run it into the neutralizer?

    You are going to want to treat the acid neutralizer along with the rest of the piping or you will still have coliform bacteria running through the system

    Running some chlorinated water into the AN filter to disinfect it and then by passing it yes, running all the shock water run throughout the house through an AN filter is really bad.
