    This is related to my previous thread about orange "mud," ( http://www.terrylove.com/forums/showthread.php?41583-Orange-County-mud&p=297364 ) but may get to a different "audience." My problem at the moment is a very fine turbidity in my water; it could be colloidal iron (see that thread), I guess it could be clay; regardless, a 0.5 micron filter in a Big Blue filter housing isn't fully removing it.

    But here's my problem: My water comes from the well 50 yards away, underground to my crawl space, which is very literally that--never more than 3 feet clearance. There it comes into a pressure tank, then through the Big Blue filter, then on to the house. I have a small garage, where the hot water heater is, and not much other space. So I'm wondering, what kind of treatment system, to get rid of that haze, can I add on in the crawl space?
    Thanks,

    My former home had a crawlspace with a gravel floor so I just dug a hole for the softener to sit in.

    That could work...unfortunately the filter is right in front of the opening to the crawl space--very convenient for changing filters, but if I put any more paraphernalia in that area, it will cramp access to the rest of my crawl space. But it might be an answer. I can see me under there, digging away, like Huck Finn and Jim, trying to break Jim out of the cabin...
