Rinse wells instead of drilling or cleaning wells

The rinsing of a well is to be understood in two meanings. After re-drilling and installation, thorough flushing sends both the pipe components and the filter layer. In the second function, rinsing a well can replace drilling or hitting. A high-performance dirty water pump "mills" through the soil layers instead.

Rinse as a cleaning method

After drilling a well hole, a ground pipe is inserted into the shaft and extended by means of Plunschen in the water-bearing layer. In this lowering method, sand and mud are moved, which is not completely removed when screwing the tube. Therefore, after reaching the final depth, the filter level of the sludge must be deslimed and desanded.

By rinsing the well with a strong jet of water, both the filter elements on the tube tip and the adjacent filter kinks of the well are cleaned. Rinsing as a cleaning method is an absolute prerequisite to prevent a clogged well and to increase the lifetime to a maximum.

Rinse instead of drilling or hitting

When it comes to rinsing a well, in most cases the creation of the well is addressed by water pressure. Instead of hitting a well with pre-drilling or setting up a regular well, flushing can be a much less expensive method.

The "digging" of a well with water is in many cases an alternative to the other types of wells. Most soils on private land are designed so that with the water during rinsing enough power is developed to pierce the soil to the water-bearing layer.

Requirements for a flushed well

However, some conditions must be met to allow a well to be rinsed. The groundwater level must not be lower than seven meters, otherwise the pumping power is no longer sufficient to suck in the rinsed material. Another requirement is a medium to solid soil condition in order to keep the flushing hole open long enough for a base pipe to be inserted.

Normally, the different layers of soil alternate often enough in grown soil to be penetrated by the water. For clay and loam layers with thicknesses of more than fifty centimeters, however, the capacity limit has been reached and rinsing must be stopped.

Dirty water pump with circulation function

For flushing a well, a powerful dirty water gasoline pump must be used. The high-performance engine should be able to circulate a thousand liters of water per minute. For the flushing process, a water consumption of 500 to 800 liters has to be calculated.

The achievement of the water-conducting layer is usually done after the piercing of two to three "hard" layers. After inserting the base pipe, which should be done immediately after rinsing, can be nachgeplunscht necessarily.

Tips & Tricks

To check the soil conditions on your property, there are probe bars that allow you to determine the thickness of each layer.
