    Think we’re dry until after lunch in Duxbury?

    That’s a northern water snake. We had one in our basement when I was younger when someone left the basement door open... it was nearly 6 feet long and fat

    Seems the more I talk about my water, The worse it gets. Water now has a black tinge to it as of this morning

    I had a water test done when we moved in to dictate what type of water system(s) we needed. Water is incredibly high in iron... but other than that... pretty mundane. We are in a new development on the edge of conservation land... so fortunately... not overly concerned about oil tanks and things of that nature. Either way, I haven’t drank the water. We have a cooler and Poland springs delivers 5 gallon jugs. My well is 180 feet deep.

    Yeah... the softener has basically solved the iron/rust issue for us... but same issues with the sediment. Cold water occasionally has a smell too. Sucks

    The house sat for a while without use after the well was drilled. So these past two months are the first time it’s getting steady usage I talked to my neighbor earlier and he said it took about a year for everything to “settle” as he described... and he had a crap load of sediment in that time frame. i took my sediment filter out today and hosed it off as a temp solution until the ones I ordered come in. Ordered these https://www.amazon.com/Icepure-Sediment-Activated-Compatible-GXWH40L/dp/B01N2H2OO6/ref=gp_aw_ybh_a_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=X04268TXA5MDM629CNMV. One thing I find odd is the filter housing is after the water softener. It was professionally installed, so hopefully that means nothing, but it definitely seems backwards from a logical standpoint

    So is that your guess? It’s grayish and only visible in the toilets where the water sits... nothing in sinks showers etc. Not coarse to the touch. After I made that post I took a peek at the sediment filter. It’s filthy... so I’m going to replace tomorrow to see what that does. I’m a little concerned about the amount of sediment given the filter is only ~6ish weeks old. I guess there is r anything I can do but replace the filter often

    Thanks for the info. Also, yourself or anyone else have any experience with the following? Had a water softener and sediment filter installed almost 2 months ago. For about a week I’ve been noticing a blackish/gray like substance in the toilet bowl. Silt like how I would describe it. Is this sediment and indicative of a filter needing change? Water pressure has no changes FWIW.

    Sorry for all the home questions lately.... but here goes another. So my neighbors well has water literally coming out of the well head and flowing down the side of the casing that’s visible above ground. What the heck is that all about? Is there so much water/pressure the static water level is coming to the surface?

    Have central air now..... but could literally install 3 window units in like 20 mins. LOL at people acting like it’s an all day production.

    Just take it one at a time... start with easy ones to free up space for the more problematic ones. Takes some practice but I’m sure you could probably do most of them yourself over time.

    The biggest issue is it’s not like 95% are experienced climbers. Basically anyone with money can take a crack at it, and if you hire enough help, all you have to do is basically show up. Look at the pics coming out of there... it’s turned into an absolute clown show. Its certainly not just the worlds most experienced climbers. Ive never climbed a mountain in my life... but if I had 100k to throw around... I bet I’d be there climbing next year
