Dropped GPM
Posted by Brian on August 17, 2002 at 16:59:17:
We have a well that is 6 years old. It started out at 7.5 gpm. We noticed this year that there is less pressure to run sprinklers etc outside. After doing a flow test we now see we are down to 5 gpm. We occasionally get some sediment in the sinks in the summer when we water. Could we have a blockage somewhere causing the gallons per minute to decrease? Is a sediment filter an essential for a well? When the well was installed we were never told we needed one or any other maintenance that was necessary, Can you adivse? Thanks alot!
