Please help! Sediment clogging pipes
Hello, thank you in advance for your assistance with this...
I live in a 5600 square foot house that we built about 1.5 years ago. We are on a water well. We had a problem with the well and ended up getting a lot of sediment, rocks, sand, etc. brought in with the main water supply. The problem with the well has been fixed and I have clean water coming into the house now. However, I can't seem to get all of the sediment out of the pipes in the house. All of my water fixtures and appliances are getting clogged at the screens / filters. I have cleaned them out several times and have tried flushing the plumbing lines by running the water out of several fixtures for several hours but can't seem to get rid of it. The master shower is the worst... probably because it gets used the most. I have to clean the sediment out of the fixtures at least once a week and have to clean out the valves about once a month. By the way, I am using a tankless water heater.
Please help... is there a way to back wash the system or apply additional pressure for flushing, or something???
