rusty water
Posted by Stephen on November 27, 19100 at 14:26:49:
I have a private water pump. Twice in the past month I have had rusty water. Lots of it. On both occasions, I used the outside hose to run the water until it was clear again -- about 30-40 minutes. This time the washer was running, so the water heater filled up, too, so I flushed it as well. I am told that the cause of the rust is a loose seal in my pressure tank. Is that possible? Probable? Is it repairable or am I looking at a new pressure tank? I would greatly appreciate any help. Thanx! Stephen
