My borehole water smell like sewage

The problem with borehole water that smells is due to a few underlying factors.

The underground water supply is polluted by sewage from some type of source.
Underground water supply flows past a French drain that overflows or is not designed the correct way.
Heavy rains because French drain to overflow and sewerage been spilled in groundwater.
I have found that some small holding owners have their own way to design their drains.
I was shocked when I started to take a closer look to the designs of drains on properties that I visit.
We and that put me first inline point fingers to the government and informal settlements for polluting our groundwater.
Small holding owners are in a big percentage also responsible for the contamination of our groundwater.
Take me on, on this topic and prove me wrong!
Borehole water supplied from a river nearby.
Sewage pollution of any type.
Long drop as far as 800 meters from borehole is a big problem.

Sewage smell in my borehole water.

What cause my borehole water to smell like sewage?
It would be sewage in the groundwater.
Another factor could be some types of natural elements that are present in the water.
Your French drain that is not designed properly.
Your drain pipes are damaged by a tree that causes the sewage to flow into the ground contaminating the groundwater.
A pit toilet on your property or nearby property.
Animals on the property or nearby.

Your water tank can be the course of the problem.

Is the tank open?
A bird, lizard, rat or any dead thing in the tank.
Tree leaves in tank.
Water source is not clean even tap water from city council.
Bacteria accumulation due to heat because the tank is in the sun.

It could be Hydrogen sulphide.
The biggest culprit is sewage from pit toilets in the surrounding area.

Well point water quality

All that I can say is that about 85% of the well point water is not suitable for domestic use of any kind.
The only way the salty water can be used is to treat the water.
The treatment process is called desalination.
It is expensive and mostly for industrial use.

Well point water quality information.

People think that the well point water is of a good quality because it comes from the ground.
Well point water can be clean or contaminated or some elements levels can be sky high.
We advice people that use well point water to first get the water tested at an accredited laboratory.

Well Point Water Information

We want to use our well point water in the house.
Due to the drought we want to be sure that when there is no water that we would still have water.
We want to tap into the house water supply line from the municipality.
There is only one big problem.
The well point water is in  some cases of a low quality.
The water taste salty and it have a strange smell.

Well Point Water usage.

Nearly every person you talk to have a well point or a borehole.
I wonder if so many people start to use the wellpoint and borehole water what impact it would have on the water level.
It would be fine to have water when the municipality cut the water supply due to the drought.
Yes we would have water but what about the quality of the water.
You can’t drink or use it when it is too salty.

What are the types of water treatment?

Different types of water treatment?

There is a few nut let’s just discuss the four most common household types of water treatment.
Filtration system is where impurities is been removed by means of filters.
Water Softeners system is a system that reduces the hardness of the water caused by calcium and magnesium.
Distillation System is a process that takes impure water and boils it then collects the steam in a cold container.
Disinfection is a physical or chemical process that deactivates or kills microorganisms.

Water Filtration system.

The Filtration System could be different types of water filters that remove impurities from the water source.
There is different media that’s been used in these filters.
Some is wool, Polyurethane, and other material.
This water filters is just to remove solid mater like sand, dust and sediment.
Activated carbon is most of the time used to remove or collect chlorine and other chemicals that could be present in the water.
KDF filters is been used to kill or destroy microorganisms. I don’t know if this media is effective. I will not promote it until I have tested it.

Water softener system.

The water softeners system is a system that reduces the hardness of the water caused by calcium and magnesium. The system is very effective and makes the water soft. The system need about 50 kg of salt per month depends on the volume of water been used.

Distillation System.

Distillation System is a process that takes impure water and boils it then collects the steam in a cold container. This is an expensive way to purify water. The problem with this is that if there are chemicals in the water it would also evaporate. The chemicals would then be present in the water. Giving the user of the water a false sense of security. Not a wise option.

Disinfection of water.

Disinfection is a physical or chemical process that deactivates or kills microorganisms.
We talk about the application of ultraviolet light, heat or electronic radiation.
The most common one is the ultraviolet light.
I have found that chlorine is not effective when it comes at parasites like roundworms.
