Well Chlorination

Sometimes you may find that your well has a problem with odor or even bacteria. When you need to sanitize well water, you have two choices, do it your self or call in a professional. We here at Lakeland Water Pump Company are professionals at well chlorination.

Sanitize Well

Well disinfection is needed from time to time. Our experience at well disinfection means that your well water is sanitized properly and your water is safe to drink and use.

According to recent statistical data, around 15% of Americans or roughly 43 million, are sourcing their drinking water from underground wells. Treatment of well water is essential because it gets rid of contaminants. Through a careful process, the water becomes clean and safe for consumption.

Some people might think their drinking water is safe because they haven't gotten sick from it. However, it is important to keep in mind that many of the diseases from drinking contaminated water will not show symptoms immediately. Some of them can take years before they develop. Having clean water to drink is essential to life. Proper treatment of well water will contribute to the health and safety of you and your family.
