    i need to do this to my well first and learn before i do it to others wells. sometimes when you do not use your sprinklers a bacteria and fungus will clog up your screen and shocking the well is needed. can anyone share this knowledge with me? :D

    Actually, I think you need to get a well guy to do anything downhole. You could be messing in an area that could really get messed up and end up costing you a ton.

    Water wells are not something you just throw something down. There is the possibility of contaminating the entire water strata, not to mention ruining wells of others nearby.

    Check with the local and state water well regulatory agency before you go dumping anything down that well.
