Thread: Silt

  1. #1

    Default Silt

    I have new well that I have used daily for 4 months. My area is a big clay bowl and I have major silt in the water. I installed a "bag" silt filter and I change the filter every two days or so, but it is not doing the job. I need a "heavy duty" silt filter system. Can you recommend one?

    Before spending money on point of entry filtration, i would see if you could flush the silt by running a garden hose directly of the holding tank and run it full blast outside. Sometimes it can take up to two weeks for it to clear up. I would also call the well company that installed it and make them aware of the situation. Depending on what type of well you have,it could be coming from a soft seem in the rock, where the casing is seated in the rock, or an undeveloped screened well.
