Question about Plumbing
I have a Culligan Estate 2 with Super S iron filter, about 10 years old on a private well. Over the last year I noticed a slow drop in water pressure and recently started getting resin in my water. Are these related and what can I do to stop the resin from passing through? I've tried to email Culligan but they have not responded and having lost my job 10 months ago I am hoping this is a problem I can fix myself. Appreciate any response.
Curious if you have had any resent well pump issues, low pressure lost pressure? Has the well pump gone done (possible vacuum created drawing out resin)
Often water softeners will have a bye-pass on them. I would try bye-passing the softener for a bit, run the water (and the pump) for a while clearing your system of any resin. I'd open bath tub valve or better yet an outside garden hose (watch for resin)to avoid plugging a aerator. If you see a significant pressure gain it could be that your softener has some plugging> In some areas of the U.S. Iron Bacteria has formed in aquifers which with time will plug a softener along with piping. If this is happening you will have to treat your well, this is done with chlorine (please use a professional here, we are talking about your drinking water) If this is happening the well will need to be treated once or twice a year.
I hope this may have helped,
Please start with the bye-pass on your softener, if your water pressure is greatly better you have narrowed down to where your problem is
