Water well cleanig

everybody living in the country with a water well, should and can clean their well with peroxide. A safe fashion is to use sodium percarbonate.Depending on the product and strenght, use apprx 4 litres of sodium percarbonate in well, run a garden hose back to well, then make water run for apprx 8 hours at 1/4 flow.Open all fawcets in the home , one at a time for a period of 5 minutes to alllow the well water contact your piping, thus cleaning these.Leave to sit overnight, with garden hoe removed.Reconnect hose in the morning, flush for an hour or so or until you run out of water. Do not let your pump run dry for any extended period of time otherwise you will burn the pump.You know the sodium percarbonate is gone when the water is free and clear of foggy looking airated water

I have had this iron (Norelco Ultima 50) for 20+ years and it is starting to periodically spurt out lite brown and staining my clothes. I love this iron and dont want to give it!

Light brown sounds like rust. I would get some "CLR", and run that through the iron. Rinse out with clear water several times, so you get all the stuff out.

I have a deep water well, it has not been used a lot in the last few years & the water is brown, can this problem be rectified

Hi Enslow, I can only guess that if the well hasn't been in use for some time then it's possible that if you run the pump and get brown water it may clear in time. My suggestion is simply continue to run the pump few a decent period of time that maybe a few days . As you do this take samples in say clear glass containers and see if there is improvement. So take samples every couple of hours and it will be apparent if the water is clearing or not. Make sure the pump is a decent distance from the bottom of the well.
Hope that helps

I accidently drove my 2000 Dodge Stratus through 1 foot of standing water. Will my engine be damaged

If your engine didn't die, it'll be fine. If the engine did die, it will probably start and run fine if it's allowed to sit for a time so that it can dry itself out. THAT is IF your engine simply got a little wet so as to cause the ignition system to fail. What can be pretty bad, though, is if the car is allowed to sit for an extended period of time in deep water.... or the water is deep enough or splashed hard enough that your air intake for your engine starts sucking in water. If it was only a foot of water, and you weren't going fast, things should be okay. If your air intake has sucked in quite a bit of water, your engine probably needs professional care.

I get brown stuff coming back into the pool when I turn on the pump in filter mode. This goes on for about 30 seconds and then clears off, but the water remains cloudy even after long period of running...

You have a multi-port valve? There is a 'rinse' mode on the handle. After you back-wash, move the control to 'rinse' and run for 30 seconds or so ... them return it to filter mode. Always shut the pump off enwh changing the valve settings - ALWAYS wait at least 10 seconds when switching the pump from off to on. Always move the handle in a clock-wise direction.

I suggest you run your filter for longer periods each day, maybe even 24 hours until it gets cleared up. Have you removed the metal from your water using a sequestering agent? Use according to package directions. Balance your water. Keep the CL around 5 ppm, the pH at 7.4, the calcuim around 250, the TA at 100. Cyanuric acid should be betrween 60 and 100 but no more. Use "super blue" in your pool according to package directions. Have you checked the Combied Clorine? (The difference between Free CL and Total CL = Combined CL)

Twice in the last year, the floater of my toilet jammed causing the water to run all night long. After running for 12 hours the water kept running but turned brown and muddy. After a day or so, all returns...

the valve that controls water flow is sticking. replace the interior water stand pipe valve with a new one you got dirt in the valve and it is not clsoeing. It would be a good ideal to put a filter on the output side of the pump. Aslo the wll level is most likely low due to lack of rain causeing the brown water. If you need more help post and let me know. the Vlave assembly costs $15.00 for a good replacement. also check that the flush handle is notr cathcing on anything and the flapper valve does not have a hole or rust arounf the ring.

Brown water drips

This may be down to contaminants in your water supply, or any "ironing water" you may be using.

There will be a build up inside the hotplate where the water is vapourised.

To clear this, refer to your manual or simply put on high steam setting, rest on it's heel, and wait for the indicator light to go out, then unplug, and hold horizontal over the sink. Press any steam boost buttons you have untill the iron is cold - and you just get water flowing out.

The best and cheapest water to use I've found - is the condensate from condensing tumble dryers. Which most people just tip away! It is condensed steam - so contains no minerals to fur up irons. If you don't have one - ask a neighbour for a few gallons.
