Shocking a well.

16 years ago

I have a camp and the well water tested positive for coliforms. No E. Coli.

It is a shallow well, 30ft with 6 inch casing.

The casing extends about one foot above grade and I have a continuos flow of water flowing out over the top of the casing.

How should I add bleach to the well when I have such a continuos flow of water from the top of the casing?

With such good flow would the bleach be in the well long enough to effectively shock the well?

How much bleach?

Thank you,
