Well I called the well drilling company this morning. My water was much more clear last night after running the hose all day, but this morning it was back to being cloudy again.
The pump installer said I should run a sprinkler rather than a hose. He said that since the well was putting out around 18 gpm the sprinkler would let the water out at a slow enough interval that the water level would go up and down helping to get rid of the clay sediment. I must say though that the water just does not clear as well when using the sprinkler as it does when running the hose. What do you guys think? I just want clear water! He did say that the fact that it did clear a little is a good sign that it will clear completely, is that your experience?
I took a sample to the health department today to see if there is any bacteria present.
I read your posts about hooking the hose directly to the well, but I don't know how to do that. They installed a frost free hydrant right at the well itself and that is where I have been running the hose.
I hope it clears soon! Thank you guys for all of your help and input!!!!
