Even a weak bleach solution is a strong disinfectant. Unless the solution is well eluted, test results may be compromised. An alternate method of metal tap disinfection involves “flaming” the tap with a lighter. It must be recognized that even a brief “flaming” of the fixture may result in damage to the finish.
The following well water chlorinating procedure should only be considered as a temporary solution for the mitigation of the presence of microbiological growth until the source of the contamination can be identified. It is suggested that prior to commencing the procedure:
Proceed with the following instructions:
NOTE: During the flushing procedure, the water may have the colour of tea, but will improve after a short period of time. As a result, screens in faucets and the cold-water inlet of the washing machine may become plugged with sediment.
Normal water usage may be resumed. It may be two to three days before the entire chlorine odour and taste is gone. A follow-up sample of your well water should be collected and analyzed before consumption begins. The follow-up sample should be collected and tested approximately one week after the completion of the above procedure.
