    CSV1A was underwater, will I have issues?

    My crawlspace completely flooded. This means my well pump, pressure switch, CSV1A, and such were underwater for a few days. I'm replacing the pressure switch and pressure gauge. Will I have any issues with the CSV1A? Do I need to do anything to it before I restart the system? I should add that...

    Having a hard water spigot and a soft water spigot? Am I Crazy?

    I'm replacing my jet pump, pressure tank, and all the associated fittings. I was planning to replumb my hose spigots before my water softener.

    I have a Goulds JS05H 1/2 HP Jet Pump and a Wel-X-Trol WX-202 pressure tank. I recently replaced my old 20/40 pressure switch with a 30/50 switch and upped the pressure tank to 28 psi. Since I did this, I've been getting a large amount of sediment in my filter. The pump and tank are pretty old...
