While performing routine sampling at Coach Run Condominiums our team of Licensed Secondwind Operators were surprised to experience a Coliform Bacteria hit. Coliform Bacteria is a serious issue not only because the water may be unsafe to drink but also because of the increased cost to the consumer for follow up testing, and potential treatment.
Find the source of Coliform Bacteria in the condominiumï’s water system and contain costs.
With no bacteria in the wells, trouble shooting the entire distribution system was necessary.
Tests of the two individual wells indicated that the Bacteria was not present in the wells. The Bacteria was being introduced somewhere in the storage or distribution system. While performing a field inspection of the distribution system Secondwind discovered that one of the distribution lines had been damaged and was leaking water into the ground. A professional well and pump company was brought in to fix the broken flush valve and the entire Well and Distribution system was sanitized.
The Bacteria test passed on the next try. The customer has passed all sequential rounds of monitored Bacteria testing. Costs to fix this problem were kept to a bare minimum. No additional Water Treatment Equipment was needed. The customers were very happy with the service that they received. Most importantly they were able to once again enjoy their drinking water with confidence.
