  3. Pour the calcium based chlorine into well (one cup per 100 feet of well depth)
  4. Using an outside faucet with garden hose attached, run water down the well for 20 minutes.  Make sure to wash down the well casing and associated plumbing in well. (do not get the wire connections wet)
  5. Turn off water, and remove garden hose from the well casing.
  6. Carefully place the wires back into the well and replace the well cap.
  7. Shut off main valve at pressure tank for 24 hours.
  8. After 24 hours have lapsed and with all water treatment and filtration systems still bypassed, open the main valve at the pressure tank and run the garden hose into the ditch or lawn until the water is clear and no odor or taste of chlorine is present in the water.  This may take a few hours, but no less than 2 hours.
  9. Place all water treatment and filtration systems back into service.
