Question about Garden

1 Answer

I am on a well and have alot of sediment, silt and sand from my well. There is a product (SandMaster) that is supposed to remove the sediment via centrifugal action. the sand is removed and drops to the bottom of the tank and the filtered water then goes to the rest of the house. My question: do these products work and have you heard of the company (Lakos) (product-sand master)

I have 2 sand traps on my well and one charcoal filter for taste under the sink. And for filtering out anything these no good farmers dump around here. I think any sand filter will work, You really don't have to get too fancy unless you are providing public water. The filters I have, take all types of cartridges, and are replaceable, of course, and they have a clear tank so you can see when it needs to be replaced. It keeps the sand out of the faucets and the charcoal really makes a difference. Hope this helps.

While vacuming loses suction, sand filter pressure goes high


That increase is due to the filter loading up with debris. Is the pool unusually dirty? If there is a lot of dirt and silt in the pool use the "waste" setting on your backwash valve while vacuuming.
This allows the water to bypass the filter and go directly out the waste line. Keep an eye on your water level because you will be removing water from the pool and may have to add more.

Water keeps dripping after a cycle


Sounds like you have a bad solenoid in your water valve. A new one is probably needed. Alot of times, sand and other particles form inside from the sediment and don't allow the solenoid to close properly.

The water is not clear any more we have white residue in the kettle. We did change the filter and emptied the tank 3 times before insulting the new filters.


I don't believe that any filtration system is capable of removing dissolved calcium from water and that is what causes the white deposits. Water softeners will, but I don't like the idea of dissolved salts in our tap water.

Is there supposed to be a sediment type material, like sand, in the drainage pump area right after the big black hose that comes off the bottom of the washer?


No, that's an accumulation of sediment from your clothes and/or your water supply.

The good news is that you can simply lower the drain hose and flush out the sediment accumulation. Then you can run another wash cycle with some cold water and try to get as much out as possible. If you can, you can disconnect the discharge hose at the pump body and flush it out by hand.

The issue is to figure out if you're getting all that sand from the clothes being washed or from your water source.

Sand will hasten the wear and tear on most any machine, so unless this washer is at a beach house, where you tend to get alot of sand in washers, by the very nature of towels, etc., you'll want to address this problem.

If you're on a private water well, you would be well advised to install a whole house water filter to help minimize the amount of sediment you're getting into your washer. If you're at a beach house, try to shake out the towels and other clothes before putting them in the washer to get as much sand out of them as possible.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Lose vacuum on pool bottom cleaner


My pool filter runs fine when skimming, but when I attach the droid or manual vacuum the basket has sucked air. Do impellers ware out? Is there a seal between the motor and the impeller that can leak air?

Dirty Dishes after dishwasher has finished


You may be getting sand in from the supply lines. Fill a clear glass container from the sink a few times and look at the bottom for sand particles. You may be getting sand from a pool filter? Remove the filter from the faucet head (it should unscrew) and look for sand particles in it. You may not be getting them in the kitchen sink if the dishwater inlets are below the sink as the particles may be sinking to the bottom of the pipes. You may need to put a filter in the dishwasher inlet. Try filling the dishwasher by hand with bottled water once and then see if the sand is still there. If so, it probably comes in through the water supply.
