So this morning I woke up to muddy well water.
Used more than the usual amount last night. Claw foot bath instead of shower. Ran clear. Don't think usage was the problem.
All week had rains in the evening. Last night was a real soaker all night long.
So first thing I do is run some water from the spigot at the pump. After about 30 gallons water became clear (er). However, there would be 'kicks' from the hose. Then get a little of the muddy before running clear again. Then after about another 30 gallons clear(er) water which I have at present. Not 100% but much better than before.
Now this leads me to two possibilities. One is that there may have been a partial collapse causing the well to muddy and that it is now clearing up as I pull water from it. Second would be the possibility that there is a crack in the casing.
Next two days are supposed to be clear weather so am gonna continue testing it as the weather dries.
Anyways, just putting this out there.
