I bought my first house 6-7 years ago and the water was slow, Im guessing, well is probably original from 1974. After 2 years, it dried up. I had a well guy come out and he suggested first trying to blow it out and recondition it. It worked. well was better than ever. Till now 4.5 years later water is now slow again. Lots of iron in our water!

I believe the well is 125' but not sure. We have shallow wells and deep wells around here as Im close to the Chesapeake bay. I think they charged me about $700 for the reconditioning, others in my neighborhood say it runs about $8000 for a new one, plus its kind of a hassle with the county, permits and testing and ruins the yard.

Question is should I keep blowing this thing out or just get a new one?
