Descaling a Borehole Pump
Mar 16, 2015
Invicta Water saved a borehole pump by descaling it. The pump sits in gypsum aquifier and needs to be descaled every 6 months otherwise the intake mesh blocks, the pump overheats and then fails. We developed a servicing regime where we abstract the pump every 6 months and descale it with strong acid as nothing else works. This measured but aggressice approach works well and has saved the owner thousands of pounds to date.
