72-hr Flush Well #1
Posted on Mar 21st, 2022

Good news on our well water! A year ago we had to shut off well #1 due to a sudden large increase in hardness, which also caused a foul taste. Multiple experts recommended we flush the water from the well onto the ground for 72 hours continuously. The excellent public works team from Gold Bar was able to perform that work for us two weeks ago. Today, test results confirm that the hardness of water from well #1 has dropped from 700 to 47, a 15 fold reduction. This is back to what we wanted. Consequently, we have reconnected well #1 to our system as of today.
