    Relatively newbie homeowner of an older 70s home with a pump and compressor tank and two hoses (one large, one smaller) that go down to the well. It's noisy, when the pump kicks in, sending out a high-pitched whining noise that can be heard on the 2nd floor. Not great water pressure and loud...

    We live in an old farmhouse in Central North Carolina, with a water well that has a 6-inch casing pipe, which was probably laid as early as 1940, or possibly as late as 1950, so it's at least 70 to 80 years old [and I'm guessing more like 80]. I'm assuming the casing pipe is steel, rather than...
