So, you drilled a water well in rock with polymers, but those polymers worked their way into the production zone and have impaired capacity. It happens. Host Brock Yordy has tips for when it does. It’s Ask Brock episode 159.

“I’m going to go in with my sodium hypochlorite mix and I’m going to focus with a jetting tool on 1 to 2 feet of that zone at a time,” he says. “I’m going to jet and break up all of that material and I’m going to start at the bottom and I’m going to stage my way up and out.”

In this episode, he discusses:

  • Rock drilling
  • Drilling polymers
  • Jetting wells with a sodium hypochlorite mix
