This is a new well (200 feet) and a new house.\n\nThere is a whole house filter and it was installed with a 30 micron\nfilter.\n\nFor 6 weeks of normal water usage, there was no problem. Then, the\nwater would come out of the faucets/showers as if there was no water\npressure. I changed the filter (with another 30 micron), and\nimmediately everything was fine.\n\n10 days later, the same thing happened. I changed the filter, and\nwater flow was back.\n\nThis cycle of loss of flow, replacing the filter and restoring the flow\nrepeated 4 days later, then 2, then 2, then 2, then 1, then 1, then it\nwas only after taking one shower that I had to replace the filter\nagain. The pump is producing plenty of water. The bladder tank is\nproducing enough pressure. It really seems to be the filter.\n\nAll the while, the filters don't "look" dirty (they were a light gray\ncolor), meaning I couldn't scrape or wash away any muck or dirt. I've\ntried 30, 20, and 5 micron filters, as well as the pleated paper,\n"felt" material, and string types. I was told to try a 50 or 100\nmicron filter, but that doesn't seem to make sense (why do I want more\nsediment to get through?). The water straight from the pump is clear\nwhen coming out of a hose, but filling up a bucket shows that the water\nis a bit cloudy (white/gray).\n\nThe only other tidbit of information is that around the time of the\nfirst filter change there was a big rainstorm, and it has been pretty\nwet ever since. There are a few drainage issues that the builder hs\nyet to work out, so there is some standing water when it is not\nraining.\n\nAny help? Do I simply need a larger micron filter? Is this a normal\npart of a new well and will it cear up in 2-, 3-, 6-months?\n\nThanks.
