I found this wonderful forum through a Google search. I had to post here because we are having the same issues as gorgemom, except our well is far from new!! (30+ years). We have lived in this house for 5 1/2 years and this is the first issue we've ever had with our water.
We have called one well company and they've been out for an initial diagnosis. The next step apparently is to have a camera sent down the well. They charge $500 for this (!!!!!).
I'm just curious if anyone has any input on the cause of very fine silt in the water of an older well. We live in southwest NH where the soil is very sandy. We also have pockets of clay in our yard, and reading the posts here, I'm thinking now the cloudy water we're getting might be clay-related. Some days are better than others, but this started 2 or 3 weeks ago and has not gone away completely for more than half a day or so.
Anyway, just thought I'd see what anyone had to say on the matter!
