Question about Plumbing
Using shallow well pump with a 1,000 gallon water tank, until existing well is "clean-out" and new submersible pump replaced. The well has been producing very iron/mudd water ever since a pump was pounded down into well after failure to remove. we go throygh a new pump every 2 years since. That was 7 years ago. Could the lining of the well be destroyed therefore explaining the iron/mudd water? Will "cleaning-out" the well fix this problem? How does one clean-out a well?
By the sounds of this, it looks like ur well casing may have heavef out of its rock seal with frost. The way I clean wells us I use a 160 cuft per minute compressor and run a 1" plastic pipe to bottom of well. I run air in cycles of approx 10 minutes on and 10 minutes off.I do this until I run out of water or water clears up. I repeat this for almost 6 hrs or longer.
Most likely this problem was caused by Shittu g workmanship driller

Call the borers for ideas on how to fix as they are the experts
I have hear that sometimes a small explosive is detonated at the bottom of the bore to help clear silt build up but again , talk with the experts in the area
probably cheaper to sink a new bore enclose by and encase it with heavy plastic tubing rather that steel casing as it will not rust and cause problems

SOURCE: mold in water reservoir
Run a couple of cycles of white vinegar through the iron allowing it to steam out. The odor may not be the most pleasant but it will clean out the mold as well as any build up that accumulates on the elements. Make sure you run two more cycles of just plain water through the iron on some scrap fablic or an old towel as any of the loose debris will come through the steam holes. After doing this you will find that it runs smoother than ever!

First with the iron cold fill the reservoir with white vinegar. I would let this sit for a few hours and then pour the vinegar out of the iron. I would do this a couple of times until you see the mold is removed from reservoir. Next fill again with vinegar and run the iron on the steam setting, steaming a clean rag or towel until all of the vinegar is steamed out of the reservoir. The vinegar will also remove any mineral deposits built up in the iron.
Next rinse the reservoir by filling it with water and emptying it completely a few times. Follow this by filling it completely with water again and setting the iron to steam setting. Use another clean rag or towel and steam it until all of the water has been steamed out of the reservoir.
In the future make sure to completely empty your iron after every use to prevent mineral build up and mold growth

replace the o-ring gasket on the tank fill cap. It is a simple neoprene "O" ring you can buy at your local hardware or NAPA aauto parts store for less than $3.00.

I'm willing to try this to clean the mold out of the steamer container and possibly the rest of the attachments:
1. Empty the water reservoir completely. 2. Place 20 mL of CLR or bleach into the reservoir. 3. Fill the reservoir with hot water. 4. Shake the reservoir to mix and let stand for about 1 hour. 5. Empty the reservoir completely. 6. Rinse the reservoir 3 or 4 times with cold water. 7. Fill the reservoir with distilled water. 8. Run the steamer into the ventilated air a couple of times to ensure that there is no CLR or bleach residue on the evaporation elements. Thus, there will be no bleach on your cloths.
I have the same problem and will try this out tomorrow. I will tell you how it turns out.
