sediment after new well pump

Posted by maduto (My Page) on

We had a new well pump installed a few months ago and ran the hose for 8 hours to get rid of the sediment. We keep having problems with continual build of of sediment in the kitchen sink area only, the rest of the house is fine. We ran the hose again, as suggested by our well installer. It is very frustrating because we can't use our kitchen sink without taking it apart very other day to get rid if the particles. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Install a whole house filter.

Whole house filter. Ditto. If that sediment is building up around your sink, imagine what it is doing to all of your faucet valves.
