What system do I have and how do I fix it
I've recently moved into a home thats on a well, thought it would be great, think it could be, but not sure how to make it so. The water smells terrible, tastes terrible and leaves some type of sand, dirt, etc, in the bottom of a dixie cup. I put one of those PuR filters in the kitchen, still won't drink it, but at least I feel a bit better about using it. Showers stink and don't really leave me feeling refreshed, and washing clothes stinks up half the house. I located a "Housing" unit with valves coming into the house. I looked it up and pretty sure its the
Pentek 158002 Blue/Black 3/8" Filter Housing (158002) or close to it. I haven't tested the water, wouldn't know what Im testing for. I went to Home Depot, the guy told me to contact a plumber, I don't want to make a fuss, I like the house and the landlord. On the other hand, I should have good clean healthy water without feeling like an imposition.
Also I live on a hill, the landlord at the top. Can you explain why, when using my sprinkler to water the grass at first I have "ok" pressure then a min later I have very little. Any info at all would be appreciated.
Thanks a bunch
