How do you clean deep well water?
You have a sample analysed then use the appropriate filters.
There are a few parts to an answer. How deep is the water in your well? Is there sludge or sediment at the bottom of the well? How deep is this and how much is clean water? How long is your pump? How long is the motor housing? I just placed a 70cm pump, motor 35cm, in 250cm if clean water. 20cm of sludge. The bottom the motor housing was placed about 40cm above the…
Yes, well water can get polluted. If you drink or cook with well water it is absolutely necessary to get it biologically tested at least annually. - I once used to take samples for a village near me that had one deep well serving 76 homes. The Regional Authority who ran the water supply demanded a bio sample weekly to ensure clean water.
A deep well submersible pump can be simply placed into a shallow well and it will work. These pumps actually pump water directly and do not rely on suction. Simply cut your tube to desired length and place the deep pump in the shallow well. -NOTE- this does NOT work the other way - a shallow or jet pump is just that and can never work in a deep well.
Using water will affect aquatic life in many ways. the deep sea or deep lake animals will die because of the short distance from the surface. For animals that can swim, but need to breath clean air, thus will be an advantage. They can go to the deepest point of the water to prey on a tasty treat and come back to the surface without trouble. Using water will also affect the water quality because…
The common misconception is that the difference between a shallow well and a deep well is the depth to which you dig to hit water. While this may be true in some cases, this isn't the basis of classification. A shallow well is one where the primary source of water is an unconfined aquifer and a deep well is one which is fueled by a confined aquifer.
Wells are naturally occuring and have natural spring water in them. In most wells the makers have dug deep into the ground and struck water. The water, in turn wells up (hence the term well) and fills the deep gap. To get water out of a well, first you need to construct a bucket lowering mechanism, lower the bucket, and pull it back up. There you have it.
