This morning I noticed the toilet had been running all night. I stopped the running but the bowl was dirty and there was a film of sediment on the bowl. I flushed several times and the water was still dirty. I backwashed the filter several times, ran the water through the faucets and flushed the toilets several more times and eventually the water cleared up.
It seems running the toilet all night caused the well pump to pull up sediment from the bottom of the well. Does that mean I was reaching the point of running the well dry? What if the toilet had been running for a few days and not just one night?
