Help- we just installed all new plumbing (PVC & CPVC- including a new line to the well) and our water is reddish. It seems to be worse in the cold water supply, but I’m worried that the hot water is only clearer because the sediment is collecting in the bottom of the hot water heater. We’ve got a shallow dug well and no money right now to drill a new deep well which will eventually solve this problem in our clay-rich area.
Until then, any suggestions for filters for the system? I don’t want one just for the drinking water, but for everything (it’s wierd to have orange water in the toilets).
