OK guys here is my deal. I have a well used for my shop. It has one sink, one toilet and I run engines and a pressure washer occasionally.
Being in a coastal area the well was drilled through a layer of plough mud. This contains black sand like material and a green clay like material. Most of the time it is OK, but sometimes, particularly when I use a lot of water, it is as if the sides of the well are caving in.
I had the well blown out about 2 years ago and it seems to be doing a good job, but some sediment still gets in.
This well has been there for 30+ years. It has managed to clog up the toilet on more than one occasion.
I don't care about the taste or quality of the water for potable use. What I want to do is remove the sand. It even eats up bladder tanks.
So far it hasn't seemed to hurt the pump, submersible.
Is there a CHEAP way to just filter the sand out of the water? Like a swimming pool filter?
