    Why is the outside pipe spaced from the wall?

    Got it, I'll fix it. And it doesn't need to come out at a 90 degree angle, right? I have a 45 degree fixture and I'll point it down closer to the ground (and put a splash block as suggested).

    Why is the outside pipe spaced from the wall?

    We had our roof replaced. The falling debris (shingles) broke an outside pipe (at the elbow) that was used to drain our water softener system. If I don't fix it, the pipe points downward against the outside wall. Seems like it would drain fine. But I would guess there was a reason it was plumbed...

    Handle Intermittent water supply problems with in-house pressure tank(s)?

    When working properly, the incoming is between 70 and 80 psi. I think our well people have the range set to 40/60 but I am at a lower elevation than the pump and so this accounts for the higher pressure. This incoming pressure is reduced to 65 psi via pressure relief valve. This is all in the...

    Handle Intermittent water supply problems with in-house pressure tank(s)?

    I live in a neighborhood with shared wells. Volunteers maintain our wells and are dedicated and well-meaning. However, since we have lived here (about 4 years) we continually have issues with the water supply to the house either stopping altogether or dropping to a non-usable pressure (e.g...

    Dirty water after changing sediment filter

    Incoming pressure is usually 60-75-ish when things are working properly. I set the pressure regulator to 60. Hmm. The fact that no one has specifically addressed the idea of dirty water coming from the well may be all I need to know. I did not know this was normal. All the plumbing in the...

    Dirty water after changing sediment filter

    I have no pressure tank. That is all at the community well. When I change the filter I turn off the line coming into the house (at the basement wall). I have a water softener which I then bypass (mostly because I don't like this anticipated dirt going through it). Then I open a sink valve in...

    Dirty water after changing sediment filter

    I'm having a disagreement with my neighborhood well committee and need some "expert" advice. In our neighborhood there are a number of shared wells. I believe that there are only a few houses on my well because of my location. So I think the well/pump should be able to handle reasonable usage...
