Your post about wells brought back memories of country living. I will never ever forget standing at the bathroom sink at 2 a.m. listening to air spitting from the faucet into an empty glass. In that moment, I discovered the true value of the water we too often take for granted and the horror of a dry well.

It may be time to call in a water well professional to diagnose your problem. A list of local professionals can be found on the Solano County website at

I'm glad you talked about how muddy water could be a sign that there's a problem with the pump. My water has been cloudy ever since my family returned from vacation, and I'm worried that the well dried up. Maybe a well water pump repair service would be able to tell what the problem is.

Every time I fill my bathtub up for my daily bath, the water sputters out of the tap, and recently it's been a little murky. I'm glad you said that sputtering water might mean that your well is running dry. It might be a good idea to call a well pump repair service to see if they can do anything about the problem.

Thanks for sharing this informative post. I was not aware that well water that is not clear could be a sign of it running dry. We have a well in our yard that's showing this sign, and we just didn't really pay much attention to it. I'll make sure to call a professional and have it checked out right away.
