Water Purifier Drops Pellets Into Well
"Anyone who has ever adjusted a conventional liquid chlorinator recognizes this system's advantages right off," says Jim Sundberg, of Safe-Well Mfg., Albert City, Iowa, about the company's new "pellet" chlorinator that automatically drops a controlled number of chlorine pellets directly into the well.
"It mounts at the well-head and drops 3/8 in. pellets right into the discharge point. When the pump comes on, it triggers the dispenser, dropping pellets down a tube. This system eliminates the need for messy and expensive chlorine tanks that are difficult to manage and take extra maintenance," says Sundberg.
"Even though they contain only 5% chlorine, liquid chlorines are often corrosive. There are less problems with Safe-Well's 70% chlorine pellets because they're dropped directly into the well," he explains. "And, it's easier to regulate the amount added. With liquid, the problem is getting the right mix. Pellets are easy to measure and are geared to the running of the pump so you get the right amount of chlorine for the water used."
The double-walled, insulated fiberglass case that holds the dispenser is 15 by 19 by 22 in. and mounts on most wells. Cost for the system is $750. Ten lbs. of pellets cost $25.69, and should last several months, depending on use. Units and pellets are available from Safe-Well distributors, or directly from the company.
