    Our neighbours installed a geo-thermal heating system and the drillers drilled 450ft. Since that time our water has been very cloudy with an off white sediment. We have run a hose for days and nights. We are now entering week 5 of this situation and we are concerned it will never get back to its original state. Although it looks a little less cloudy, it is not clear. We have had many lab tests done and all we get is a mineral count which still does not tell us what the sediment is. They have been unable to do a coliform or e-coli test because of the quality of the water. Any suggestions on how to find out what is in the water and secondly, how to clear it? We already have a RO system as well as a UV system and water softner.

    Try disconnecting the pipe at the well. Then turn on the pump and let it run full blast. This should clear it up if it's going to. Running a hose could take forever.
