In response to Re: no pressure just a lotta sludge
: water comes from a spring, is pumped to my house through a purification/treatment center then pumped throughout the house and to a cottage.There is near to no pressure at the cottage and a separate filter at the cottage is full o gunk that should have been filtered out by the main house system, also my pump is turning on way too many times, no obvious leaks, no problems at the main house...any ideas?

: Sounds like an underground break to me, or maybe old pipes that are super corroded, but how do I pinpoint the problem without digging up the whole yard? Is there something I am not thinking of?

It could be alot of things, so it would be nice to know how old your system is and how it is put together. It appears that you may have a pressure tank installed and it may need air in it. Also that tank could be full of fine stuff your system didn't take out. So that it is passing large amounts down line plugging up things in the cottage.
