Chlorination | Disinfection for Pipes
High Country Pipe & Utility has the means to inject high concentration chlorine into a water line that needs disinfection. This happens because a line has had a break and repaired, or a new line that chlorine tablets were not added to at the time of installation. After chlorine has been injected into water pipe it will typically need to “cook” (or simply stay in the pipe) for 24 hours. Then High Country can flush the system with a de-chlorination process to remove the chlorine from the line. A sample is collected either by us or the water district and taken to a lab to determine if any bacteria remains in the line.
Chlorination | Disinfection for Tanks
High Country Pipe & Utility has the ability to chlorinate newly installed or rehabilitated water tanks prior to being put into service. We clean the surface of the tank with high pressure water spray. After cleaning we spray a mixture of water and chlorine over the inner surfaces so the tank is disinfected. Under normal conditions the tank will cook and then be flooded and drained, then tested for bacteria. If this test passes, the tank is ready to be put into service.
