BoreSaver Ultra C
Cleans the rusty iron oxide residues that build up in wells, bores, pumps and pipes.
When iron oxide residues build up in the well/bore, production drops and maintenance costs can spiral out of control. The slippery orange iron deposits are due to the conversion (oxidation) of dissolved iron by naturally occurring bacteria (I.R.B.). It is not only unpleasant for the operators but, more importantly, it is indicative of a system that is steadily becoming constricted, inefficient and expensive to maintain. Iron oxide residues affect stainless steel as well as cast iron and the various different types of plastic groundwater pumps.
Safe & Easy To Use
The active ingredients are organic and fully biodegradable. Nothing enters the production stream. Treatment solution is flushed to waste after cleaning.
How Much Product Do I Need for My Well?
The amount of BoreSaver Ultra C to use is based on water volume in the bore to be treated. The degree of contamination in the pump is not directly related to the length of time the pump has been in service, rather factors such as mineral levels, dissolved carbon dioxide levels and the quantity of water pumped influence the amount of residues contained in the casing and pump
How Often To Clean
The frequency of follow up cleanings will be determined by the natural conditions already present in the well and the aquifer. It is not possible to totally eliminate the iron related bacteria contamination from the far reaches of the underground aquifer. BoreSaver will however provide effective control and cleaning for extended periods of time.
By evaluating when the effects of the iron oxide residues start to cause the installation or user unacceptable performance, treatment timing can be determined. Generally this should be considered at the halfway point of the breakdown timeline since the propagation of the bacteria tends to be exponential. By treating at the half way point, the optimum performance of the pumping infrastructure will be maintained. An added benefit of this program is that the ongoing maintenance costs are locked in at their lowest possible levels.
Examination of the historical site records as well as studying the telemetry records for the system will establish this optimum re-treatment baseline.

Frequently Asked Questions
The downhole facing SC-166 is suitable for boreholes up to 10 inches in diameter. The R-CAM dual view camera can view boreholes up to 16 inches in diameter. The DC5150 is suitable for borehole diameters up to 30 inches in diameter. Please note, visibility downhole will be impacted by the clarity of the fluid and the available light.
Every camera system will eventually require a repair to the cable head, the point at which the cable and camera physically connect. Over time, the internal connections within the cable head can be strained to the point where they disconnect and cause interference or a complete loss of the video signal. To expedite the repair process, we have cable head repair kits available for both portable systems and large vehicle-based systems.
Conducting surveys with the included centralizers and available lens shield accessory is the best way to ensure that the camera head remains protected downhole. When not in use, store the camera head in an area where it will be safe from unintentional drops or damage. If your camera system is damaged, we offer full repair services at our headquarters in Fresno, California.
