We noticed last week the ground was unfrozen and wet between the well and
house. The water was coming up from the ground like a spring then stopped
when the water softer stopped running its cycle.( 1st Q-The exit tube goes
to the front ditch for the softer, it freezes in the winter so I pull it
back into the house unthaw and then run the water softener during the day -
cant put it through the septic -heavy clay soil-so the previous owner
said-wish there was a better way?)
My 2nd question is why would the pipe break between the well and the house?
Is it common for this to wear out in 10-20 years?
My husband said he would dig it up in the spring but we lost our water
yesterday...finally found the filter was full of mud stuff. So I hope he
will do it today:>)
