Just recently, I started getting sand in my well water. Put a particulate filter just after the pump and it became almost half full of sand within a couple of hours. My well is as old as my house, which I built about 22 years ago. Domestic wells here in Florida are simply a 2" galvanized pipe hammered into the the ground with a wellpoint on the end. Mine is about 60' deep. The pump and pressure tank are located above ground. I have always had great water, with no filtering required. My thoughts are the 2" galvanized pipe has corroded through somewhere allowing water and sand to be drawn into the pipe at this breach. Our water table here is approximately 4 to 6 feet below the surface, which would allow for sand/water to be drawn in almost anywhere along the casing. I'm looking for a cheap/easy fix here. My first thought is to remove the cap on the top of the 2" galvanized and insert a 1.5 or 2 inch schedule 80 PVC pipe with a PVC wellpoint into the existing pipe, and then connecting my pump to it. Although it would be a smaller I.D., my thoughts are this would work. Any thoughts/recommendations before I try this or call a well company?
