well sediment in irrigation filter - help please!
I had a submersible well pump replaced 1 year ago. It still operates fine, except, now that I have turned on my irrigation system, the irrigation filter with 60 mesh screen is getting clogged with sediment. its sand and fine silt mostly, rust colored. I don't see this in my house fixtures because I have a water softener. After only 4 hours of sprinkler run time the filter is clogged solid. Any ideas why I am getting so much sediment? When it was first put in, i got some, and I had the pump raised some, but apparently that did not work. I am also concerned I may be clogging my pump and stressing my softener system. I am at a loss. well guy wants me to run garden hose from bottom of pressure tank to "flush" well again, but its been a year!! Help please!!
