I've just moved into a house that uses well water. There was clearly air in the pipes, so I did some reading and bled the lines, pressure tank, and hot water heater. While the well pump was off, I noticed that air was hissing out of the pressure release on the backflow preventer or check valve located between the pump and the pressure tank.
Although I haven't located and inspected the well head and pump, I was told by the previous owner that an aeration system was installed at the well head to eliminate the naturally occurring smell of sulfur.
At this point I have a few theories on what could be happening, but I don't know how to proceed. While bleeding the water from the pipes did help for a little while, the air or gas has returned and our pipes are sputtering once again.
Any insights here would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Nope, but I'll bump it up for you.
I would recommend you to concern with a plumber that easily solve your issue.......
You may have tasted best water, however, it can have a bad unpleasant sulfur scent. Air trapped in household plumbing is a generally basic issue, particularly in more seasoned homes. This is one of the reasons for noisy pipes, extending from a vibrating sound too redundant jack-hammer commotions. You should consult a plumber for this issue.
