I have no idea we bought the house about 6 years ago and have no information regarding the well except that it is driven point. The water color very clean we have had it tested. The water does have a lot of copper and iron in it, it leaves my fixtures blue all the time. Flo-tech is our pump and that was replaced 3 years ago. THe soil conditions are sandy. I dont know the flow rate but atleast a couple of gallons a minute, normally it flows pretty well. it has been in constant use and this second this has happened, the first time my husband replaced the pressure switch and the air line for it and the problem went away. There is very little water in the tank we still have pressure but it is spitting throughout the dya when it is not run normally. Say we dont run the water in the morning when we get home in the afternoon it is spitting water. Thank you for the help.
Hello again, thanks for all that detail.If you can hear or feel the pump running, then the problem is one of the following;- Water table dropped below the point.- Point got clogged with iron deposits.- Pump is failing,The fact that you are getting sputtering indicates the pump is getting power and is running... those are fairly reliable pumps. Leading me to suspect the water table has dropped.I have seen this happen when a new, large diameter well is drilled in the area to water a golf course etc.If you can tell me which direction you are from the center of the nearest town, I might be able to access the county ground water survey.let me know, we can go from there.
I live in south tamworth nh it is on Union hall road of route 25, we live right on the bear camp river. Do we have to put a new well in if it has to do with the point being clogged? Thank you
