I have rural water and had to move the incoming waterline from the old meter and pressure reducing valve to a new one. In the transition to the new equipment I made a couple of changes to PEX in between the new meter/pressure reducing valve and where it connects to the water filter / softner / water heater.
Old line was plastic line from the curb stop in to water meter / pressure reducer / softner / then house with water heater at the end of the line.
- We now have lots of sand clogging things (due to turning water off and on??)
- Low water pressure all over house (I have screwed the bolt all the way in and all the way out with more sand showing up)
Any advise on what I need to do, even call a professional to increase my water pressure and get ride of the sand. I have clogged up sinks, showers and clogged a toilet valve.
Little late know but the water should have been run out the outside faucets to flush the lines.
All aerators removed from the faucets and blead them.
Run the tub last.
Now your going to have to remove the aerators and clean them out, shut the water off to the toilet and pop the cap off of the flush valve and clean it out, also going to have to remove the anti scald valve and stem in the shower control valve and clean them out.
Im sure the bottom of the water heater has mud in it so make sure to flush that out.
