Have you noticed the rusty slime inside wells and bores, or cloudy and rusty water flow during the pump start-up or reduced water flow from pipes? Are the drain lines in the basement plugged up? Is the sump pump plugged and not working?  Did you find slimy masses blocking main lines and laterals, or drain tile and drain block plugged with IRB. Is there an unpleasant odor in the water that is pumped from the well or severe stain on pavements and walls foliage? Do you know these problems are caused due to severe iron related bacteria contamination? Sometime called iron ochre. So, how can we effectively minimize and control iron related bacteria contamination? How can we remove the iron plugging up the drains? BoreSaver Ultra C is the answer. 

At Cannon Water Technology, Inc, we offer a simple and extremely useful solution that cleans out the iron contamination and prevents iron oxide residues from building up in the well/bore or drainage system. BoreSaver Ultra C ~ Iron Reducing Bacteria treatment is designed for approved borehole cleaning, well rehabilitation, drain and sump cleaning, filter cleaning and water supply treatment. BoreSaver will extend the working life of pumping equipment, piping, drains, filters and accessories.

The SKU of this iron oxide well cleaner is BS-ULTRA-C.

How to use BoreSaver Ultra C for Iron OCHRE removal in Basements and Sump Pumps:



Mix about 1 to 2 pounds of BoreSaver Ultra C powder into 5 gallons of fresh water. Slowey pour the mixture into the drain lines at the furthest points. Allow the mixture to soak for several hours before flushing. Overnight soaks seem to work best. Use the mixture to clean off surfaces contaminated with the Iron OCHRE and rinse with fresh water completely.

Tips: Some people have found that it is helpful to plug the lateral drain lines with a rag or sponge where those lines enter the sump pit. Carefully fill the lines with BoreSaver Ultra C solution mixed with water into the lines filling those lines partially full. Allow some room in the pipes for the water that is draining into them. This allows the mixture to contact more surface area and get most of the Iron OCHRE into contact with the solution. Pull the plugs after several hours or overnight and flush with plenty of water.
