well shock

A friend just called me. He shocked his well and now there’s foam coming out of the top of the well and the faucets. Any ideas of what caused this. Ive never had this happen to me and I’ve chlorinated probably 200 wells over the years.

I think you will find it is organic material in the water. The chlorine is breaking them down and causing gas in the water.

makes cense. I know this house has been sitting for years.
