Salt in well point water

Why is there salt in my well point water?

  • I recently installed a well point on my property in Parklands.
  • The person that drilled ensure me that we would get water.
  • Big was my surprise when we found water. 
  • The water was a strong stream that flow out when the drill people drilled and even tested the strength of the borehole.
  • I was so pleased that we found water.  
  • What the drill people didn’t inform me is that most of the well points in our area have salt in.
  • When it tastes the water it was if I took sea water.
  • That was when I realize with a shock that the well point water would not be usable for anything.
  • Not even gardening.

Testing the well point water.

  • I download the water testing form from the website www.boreholewater.com.
  • Print it and marked all the elements on the form.
  • I took a 2 liter of water from the well point to the water testing laboratory at Strand.
  • The name of the laboratory is Bemlab.
  • Seven days later I received the report.
  • I couldn’t believe it.
  • The water was of a low quality due to the high content of Sodium, Chloride, Calcium, Magnesium and Iron.
  • All the money wasted for a borehole with water that I can’t even use.

Removing salt from well point water.

  • The only solution is desalination.
  • That is expensive and for industrial use, not for domestic use.
  • There is a person that is busy with a patent and the results looks good for the removal of Sodium and chloride from well point water.
  • Test results from the laboratory indicated that the sodium and chloride readings were lower.
