I was watering the lawn with a regular sprinkler moving it every hour or so and I noticed after about 4 hours the water had quit running. We just bought our house about 9 months ago and have had no problems with the water or pressure. It is on a well and having just moved from a house with city water I didn't realize that we couldn't water for extended periods of time. In any event, I turned the water off for an hour or so and tried to run the kitchen faucet. The water is running fine but it is the color of rust. We have a filter and a water softener and the water filter is full of rust colored sedement or something. What do I do now? Should watering my lawn run my well dry? Will it always recover after a short period of time or is this a sign that I may need a new well soon?
