    Hi,

    Our well pump (a submersible) has started to make a bunch of noise (kinda like a grinding) and is using more electricity to start up than it has in the past. It uses more initially then tapers off to where its always been after running a minute or so. We have iron in our water and have a small amount of sediment (or iron) that is collecting on the bottom of the household filter. We've also noticed some green/blue bits or grains on the filter. I was wondering what might be the cause of the noise. I'm thinking the "one way" valve might be bad or the well line may have a leak. Any ideas?

    thanks

    Jon
