A Very Deep Subject

WELLS

Just had five guys come out to try to figure out why my sprinkler system stopped working all of a sudden. They checked the system out walking the property, looked at every head, opened every control box and determined it was not the sprinkler system. They put a flowmeter and a pressure gauge on my well hydrant and found it to be under the minimum requirements for my system. It worked fine for the first few days when I turned it on May 1 but then just seem to lose all kinds of pressure as if it was possibly a mainline leak or blockage. Waiting for a call from the well guy now. This could really cut into my guns and mammoth ivory budget.

No they just all came from my sprinkler company kind of unexpectedly to solve this problem of mine. No time to even light the barbecue.

Just a thought, up here in Pa. we have a lot of iron in the well water. Every now and then I have to clean out the airators or whatever they are called because it blocks them up. It makes the shower and sink seem like low pressure. Maybe your problem is in the sprayer heads?

No that's not it really. All is not well with my well pump. It's only putting out about half of the pressure that it did last week. It's nine or 10 years old and it's getting tired.
