Only God does not have the old wells,

As is the case with us.

And someone will drink from the well once

and even other will give.

has come May.This means that all of us can safely congratulate with the opening of the summer season.However, each ointment inevitably relies weighty fly in the ointment.And next spring appearance in the pit of muddy water may well qualify for this unenviable title.Want to know how to purify water in the well on their own without the extra money and validol?Read on.We promise to be interesting.

How to clean the water in the well - good advice from our experts ↑

Every spring the hap

py owners of suburban wells are faced with the same problem - how to purify water in the well after the floods and melting snow.In this case, the owners of water pipelines can only envy.That's just not at all suburban towns running water.But even if carried out, then the water supply or irregular or generally made on schedule, which is not always convenient Cottagers.Therefore, even if there is running water, a prudent owner bore the area well or digging a well.And if the well water is cloudy, it is necessary to start the holiday season with its disinfection, which is as follows:

  • first pumping water from the well;
  • bottom cleaning and arrangement of drainage;
  • disinfection of the bottom and walls of the well;
  • second pumping, filling the well with fresh water.

How to make pumping water from wells ↑

Pumping water from the well is usually performed by a pump or electric pump.Convenient to use electric submersible pumps with upper water intake of domestic production, for example, "Streamlet" or "The Kid" (there are other analogues).They are easy to use and have sufficient lifting height of water (25 to 40 meters).The price is 1200 - 1800 rubles, depending on the power consumption, optimal performance and lifting height of water.

The evacuation may be necessary in the event that there is a need to deepen the well.Anyway, submersible electric pump, you can use the whole summer to irrigate directly from a well, or to fill the irrigation tanks.

Cleaning and equipping the well bottom ↑

First cleanse the well from large debris.If it were stones, branches or small animals, then, of course, all this should be immediately removed.

bottom of the well, it is desirable to lay pebble, stone powder, but best of all - silicon.More school time with silicon or flint we remembered as a rock for the production of fire.But it turns out, not only that it is valuable!Since ancient times, healers have used its healing properties - namely, bactericidal and antiseptic.Consequently, for the purification of water from the well of silicon can also be used.In Russia, for clean, clear and "healing" the internal surface of the water, even the wells laid flint.So, flint chips can be used as a filter for water from the well, which, incidentally, is used in the manufacture of industrial water filters.

drain gasket on the bottom is formed as follows.After cleaning, as drainage or filter to clean well water, layers stacked in sequence the following minerals:

  • shungit or quartz;
  • permutit or zeolite (synthetic zeolite crystals - mineral used for the purification of water);
  • activated carbon.
Schungite everything for the bottom of the well

This gasket should be updated every 5 years, and do it better in the summer or fall.

Interesting facts about shungit.He is considered a healing stone.And we, Russians, are lucky, because the deposit of this mineral found only in Karelia.We prove that shungite - the only in the world of rock containing fullerenes (nano carbon origin).Using fullerenes, French experts involved in the search for tools to assist in slowing down the aging process and prolong life, in the course of their research have increased life expectancy of animals by half.
in contact with water shugnit highlights in her medical complexes of fullerenes.Water treated a certain way shungite, heal wounds and burns, allergic and skin diseases, diabetes and diseases of the oral cavity, as well as well successfully used in cosmetology.

not always possible to buy shungit and zeolite in a sufficient amount for arranging drainage.In this case, please be at least a small amount of miracle stones.If they lay on the bottom, for example, the three-liter jar and pour it into the water from your well, then after 30 minutes the water will be cleaned, and it will be possible to drink.

Disinfection well ↑

After the water is pumped out, and he will be cleaned, disinfected.
That's what it looks like steps.

  • Step №1.The bottom of the well to pour bleach.Instead of bleach can be used potassium bichromate or similar chlorine-containing substances.
  • Step №2.Leave on for 2-3 days.During this time, a new well will be filled with water, and chlorine is a volatile substance, completely evaporate, leaving no trace.But during his action will destroy all harmful bacteria.
  • Step №3.After disinfection need to do a second pumping water.That is now the well is cleared for sure!

Important!How to calculate the amount of chlorine to disinfect?A solution of bleach is made from the calculation of 20-25 mg of bleach to 1 gallon of water.When pure chlorine disinfection it should be five times less.The volume of water in the well calculated, based on the diameter and height of the well water, which is available in the well.It is not difficult to guess that both of these numbers (in meters) to be multiplied.It is recommended to treat the walls of the well.They can whiten with lime mortar or just sprinkle dry izvёstkoy.

With the threat of epidemics of intestinal diseases disinfect water in the well is recommended to bleach every day.A solution of chlorine in this case is made with a reduced concentration of about fifty times that would be 2-5 mg per liter of water.

How to analysis of water from wells ↑

quality of well water depends on the aquifer from which it was obtained.Deeper layers of groundwater usually cleaner.And in the upper aquifer can enter groundwater and the water formed after the snow melts and containing a variety of contaminants.We will not delve into geology.We are more interested in chemistry and biology.

history of childhood.In the good old days in the countryside of central Russia women wore water from the well on the beam.It was not just the well - it was a temple of pure water.He towered over the well log house on the edge of a floating wooden ladle.Drinks can be expressly icy scooping some water.It is even in the height of summer was cold and delicious!Surely, someone still remembers the taste of childhood until now!

Nowadays, even after thorough disinfection and installation of natural filter media, the water from the cottage Wells can only be used for technical purposes: watering flower beds, façade cleaning, laundry, etc.

to drink this water, you need to use additional filters to clean the water of the well, the benefit of them now produced a lot and with varying degrees of purification.Choose the "right" filter is best, taking into account the chemical composition of the water, then the water out of your well will be not only harmless, but can be curative.Chemical and bacteriological analysis of water from the well should be done in specialized laboratories.

bacteriological analysis of water is from five hundred to eight hundred rubles.The estimated cost of the chemical analysis is from 1250 to 1680 rubles, depending on the list of the parameters studied, which includes:

  • indicators of acidity, alkalinity, salinity;
  • hardness, oxidation, color, turbidity and odor;
  • mineral composition - manganese, iron, nitrates, phosphates, nitrogen.

To analyze the need to score at least one and a half liters of water.The bottle should be pre-rinsed with water of the same.

Knowing chemical indicators, water purification can be performed by an excess of minerals or, on the contrary, the enrichment of water with the missing minerals.For example, there are cases where in some areas with a specific composition of water, people massively acquire certain types of diseases, which, in fact, could have been avoided by simple filtration of water.

Stories no excess water chemistry ↑

  • Elevated levels of iron in the water stains in the water a reddish-brown color.Not only does it affect the taste of water, it still adversely affects the skin, contributes to allergic diseases, and also may affect the morphology of the blood.
  • increased rates of manganese in the water can have mutagenic effects in humans.Manifestation of high manganese content can be seen by a particular taste, but also for the brown spots that appear on the clothes during washing.
  • Lime water leads to gout, which is manifested in the form of salt deposits in the joints, but also nephrolithiasis, which is expressed in the form of salt deposits in the kidneys.
  • sulfides irritate the skin, exerting a toxic effect on humans.A hydrogen sulfide, and all - the poison for all living things!

The given horror stories say that the additional cleaning water from the well using specially selected based on the results of biochemical analyzes of water filters water from the well can save you from nasty sores different.And, then, the question is, do or not do an analysis of water from the well of our cottage, must be resolved in favor of the "TO DO!".
