Iron Oxide and Iron Bacteria Treatment

Ultra C

Cleans the rusty iron oxide residues that build up in wells, bores, pumps and pipes.

When iron oxide residues build up in the well/bore, production drops and maintenance costs can spiral out of control. The slippery orange iron deposits are due to the conversion (oxidation) of dissolved iron by naturally occurring bacteria (I.R.B.). It is not only unpleasant for the operators but, more importantly, it is indicative of a system that is steadily becoming constricted, inefficient and expensive to maintain. Iron oxide residues affect stainless steel as well as cast iron and the various different types of plastic groundwater pumps.

Safe & Easy To Use

The active ingredients are organic and fully biodegradable.  Nothing enters the production stream. Treatment solution is flushed to waste after cleaning.

How Much Product Do I Need for My Well?

The amount of BoreSaver Ultra C to use is based on water volume in the bore to be treated. The degree of contamination in the pump is not directly related to the length of time the pump has been in service, rather factors such as mineral levels, dissolved carbon dioxide levels and the quantity of water pumped influence the amount of residues contained in the casing and pump

How Often To Clean

The frequency of follow up cleanings will be determined by the natural conditions already present in the well and the aquifer.  It is not possible to totally eliminate the iron related bacteria contamination from the far reaches of the underground aquifer. BoreSaver will however provide effective control and cleaning for extended periods of time.

By evaluating when the effects of the iron oxide residues start to cause the installation or user unacceptable performance, treatment timing can be determined. Generally this should  be considered at the halfway point of the breakdown timeline since the propagation of the bacteria tends to be exponential.  By treating at the half way point, the optimum performance of the pumping infrastructure will be maintained. An added benefit of this program is that the ongoing maintenance costs are locked in at their lowest possible levels.

Examination of the historical site records as well as studying the telemetry records for the system will establish this optimum re-treatment baseline.
