Any structures need to be repaired over time. And the well in this regard is no exception. This topic is especially important, since wells are a source of drinking water, and in some cases, the only. Therefore, such structures are very important for suburban residents, and their condition should be paid to increased attention.
Currently, wells are distinguished by the type of material used in the process of its manufacture. Based on this, such structures are wooden, brick, stone and reinforced concrete. Since the wells made by reinforced concrete rings are most common today, the issue of their repair should be considered in more detail. Despite the fact that concrete is modern and very durable material, it is periodically necessary to repair a well from reinforced concrete, as this allows you to increase its life.
During the operation of this type of structure, a wide variety of problems may arise. So, the need to carry out the repair of a well built of reinforced concrete rings may indicate the appearance of leaks in the places of joints of structures. The presence of even a small leak can lead to serious water pollution in the well, and this is not only unpleasant, but also very dangerous, since meltwater, which are a carrier of pathogenic bacteria, fall into the well.
Most often, damage to the mine of the well occurs in the winter when the rings are compressed by frozen soil. Despite this, it is better to carry out repair work on this occasion in the warm season. In addition, it is recommended to periodically conduct maintenance of the well.
To eliminate leaks, seam should be seized using special solutions. Sometimes, in order to get the best result, you need to access the outside. For this, the well is baking the well around it from its outer side. After the seam is qualitatively waterproofed, the manufactured trench is filled with dense tamped clay. This is necessary for high -quality protection of the rings of the structure from contacts with large volumes of water, which enters the ground with precipitation. Practice shows that this kind of work should not be done independently, and it is better to entrust their production to specialists.
