Aqua Freed® Process
Environmentally Friendly Well Rehabilitation/Restoration
The patented Aqua Freed® process is explained below.

Liquefied carbon dioxide is injected at various temperatures and pressures. When the liquefied carbon dioxide comes in contact with the water, it expands rapidly, producing tremendous agitation. The continued, controlled injection of the liquefied carbon dioxide produces the energy necessary to detach, dislodge and remove mineral encrustation, biological fouling and physical plugging.
After treatment with gaseous and liquid carbon dioxide, the well is mechanically developed using surge/airlift methods to remove the newly dislodged particulate matter from the well and formation.
The well pump is then reinstalled and the well is tested and returned to service, providing an increased supply of water for its intended use.
