My wife and I purchased a home on five acres that has well water. Had a home inspection and the inspector didn’t note any problems with the well. We were at the house yesterday, doing some work prior to move in and when we flushed the toilet or ran water from the faucet noticed a “pulsation” and fairly loud sound. It seems to be in sync with the operation of the outside pump drawing water from the well. Not sure what to make of it and we will get someone out to look at it, but wondering what the issue might be. I am not familiar with a well, so I can’t even speculate. My father suggested that the pressure tank might not have enough pressure built up in it to provide a stay flow, but the water from the faucets was smooth with no drop in pressure. The system is straight well with no water softer. Also, the home was a second home for the previous owner and saw very little use over the last two years. Any suggestions would be helpful.
As for a follow up question, I remember as a kid washing cars at my friends house in their well water. This would always leave spots after drying caused by the mineral rich water. Anyone know of a hose filter that can be used to prevent this?
