Akpsdvan· Water Treatment
When was the last time that you cleaned the point where soda ash is injected to the water stream?We have a well water system and soda ash tank. I went to add soda ash today and found that water is backing up and flowing back into the soda ash tank (or at least to the pump). When I turned the pressure release valve (that usually only pumps out a few drops to get the soda ash flowing) water was spewing out like a garden hose. The pump was unplugged, so it's definitely not coming from the soda ash container, but rather from the house pipes.
I have no idea what this is. Is is a pressure tank problem? Should I just drain the backed up water? Will it even stop? Ideas?
Also, water pressure in the house is fine. Aside from acidic water due to lack of soda ash, there are no other changes to the water.
Soda ash will build up at the point of injection and needs to be cleaned every so often so that the injection can continue.
