    Two suggestions:
    1. Install a sediment filter before the tank to avoid sediment build up in the tank. Having two sediment filters (one before & one after the tank.)
    2. Glue a bushing with female threads into the LB box so you can install a romax connector for the #12 gauge romax wire going into the LB.

      @Guy Tech i have said that my pump make constant presure at the output so that mean it have pressure regulation built in,so what you talking about ....I have this pump, Grundfos SQE 3-65,in25m deep well and after this pump on the top i have filters and after these filters a tank and ist working all fine, I have too much sand in the well so I dont store it,the sand, in my tank,the tank is just for water

      @BeBe Bajner Nope. The pump just moves water into the water line, it does have pressure regulation built in. Some installs have a pressure switch installed in the well instead of at the tank. If there is no pressure switch at the tank, remove the well cap and look inside the well housing. You see a pressure switch installed, usually at the pitless adapter which connects the well pump line into your water line.
      Consider how would a well pump know at what depth its at. Is it at 50 ft, 100ft, 150 ft, +200 ft? the deeper the well the more pressure is required to pump the water out of the well. All well pumps rely on a pressure switch.

      @Guy Tech i dont know what kind of weird pump you use, my pump make constant presure at the output and when this presure is reached, pump switch off, and when the presure drops then get switched on..I have diferenciál presure sensors on my filters, so when the filters get clogged I can see it even before that happens.... Trully I think its not very smart let all the sand and silt get to the tank... I am storing in my good pure drinkable water

    After a couple of years building RO systems in arctic communities I would suggest an RO membrane . You should also look at a UV light phase on the post filtration side , you might also want to consider a 300-500 gallon tank in the basement post filtration to store clean water an ozone aeration unit will help keep it fresh and having a stock of clean water in a heatable space may save you in an extreme winter season . It also seems better for pump longevity to pressurize your inlet water with one pump and distribute it with another located after the filtration and before the P Tank . This splits the draw load and the distribution pressurization load . We were building fill your own jug systems for the town stores in these tiny villages and when you are 2 or 3 airplane flights and at least as many days from any replacement parts or a service tech you learn pretty quick how to adapt these systems for absolute minimum hands on maintenance , after all who wants to pay 10-12 thousand dollars for someone to fly in and replace a 100 dollar pump ?

    Yes, gauges on the top to monitor filter restriction. My water is that cloudy and it’s crazy to see how fast that sediment filter changes color. I have a case of sediment filters for 30-45 day changes. I also put a 50 micron metal reusable filter in front of the media filters. Now I just need a nice big pressure tank like that one! Current one is too small. Nice project!

    Would recommend adding a water softener before the filter, (I have a kinetico) I did what you did prior and spent two years of spending a ton on filters, the up front of a water softener is more but if you plan on the long haul it’s a saver and plus you can actually get 8 months on the filters. Side note, would add a uv filter system too, bulb change yearly and it’s cheap. Love the videos and good luck with off grip living

    It is called an LB because the opening is opposite the cover, coming out the back. There are also LRs and LLs for going right and left. Hold the fitting like a pistol and the cover to the right is an LR and to the left an LL. I agree about putting a romex connector going into the LB. You wouldn't pass an inspection since the opening is not closed.

    27:05 I have a fairly similar arrangement with the hydrant and hand pump, and it's REALLY hard to pressurize the tank to 60PSI by hand. Plus, you can't see the pressure, so the only way to know when to stop it is to keep pumping until your arm falls off! 😁 Still, it's much better than having no water. This arrangement saved me lots of times when I was having problems with my well pump.

    When I lived in Hawaii I had a similar system but suggest a couple changes for yours. My system had a sediment filter before the pressure tank and that helps keep the inside of that tank clean and the rubber bladder inside it will last longer. Also, I had 3 filters mounted in this order : first was sediment, second was charcoal/carbon, last was a UV filter which contained a UV light that kills 99.9% of bacteria. We didn't really need an iron filter but since you have a deep well I can understand the need for one in your situation. I had my water tested for bacteria to be sure it was a safe source of drinking water. It's a learning experience that is so important! God bless you all! I love watching your progress!

      Bad idea, since if the filter gets clogged, the pump will burn up.

    • Eggugat
      Eggugat 4 ай бұрын

      The sediment will have no effect on the life of the tank, nor will dirty water. It more comes down to how often and how much water you use. The more the bladder expands and contracts, it gets pinched where a metal ring is crimped into the tank to hold it into place. I have never seen a filter before a tank besides and automatic sand separator. Putting filters before a tank can cause a pump to short cycle from the pressure switch not properly sensing tank pressure. Minerals in the water all come down to where the well is drilled not how deep. I have replaced pumps in 100 ft wells there are iron mines and I have also replaced pumps in 1300 ft well that are spotless. Just luck of the draw and local terrain really. Hopefully that helps some :)

    A relative of mine has filters just like yours, and found that they're very difficult to remove after time, to the point that the plastic 'wrench' handle would bend and the filter container still wouldn't budge. We tried a little petroleum jelly on the blue container threads before we reinstalled them last time. Too soon to tell if it helped.

    If I may make a suggestion.. you may have better water pressure and a cleaner tank by filtering from well before the tank vs filtering after the tank. Just a thought, my 3m whole house filter significantly reduces the water pressure and flow.
    FYI 😊
    LB stands for line box. It is often used at the point where you will begin pulling wire through the conduit. However, it is not a junction box and should not contain wire connections.

    Your filter system is very much the same as ours, just a different manufacturer.
    We have had it for over 4 years and recently changed to a block carbon filter from a granulated one and it made huge difference. We also use a 25 10 5 1 micron filter first then the iron manganese and carbon last. Your water might have a little more sediment so you may need to pre-filter before the pressure tank.
    Great job and very well explained.

  • Andrew Theologo

    I think it would have been better to put the 3 filters before the tank.
    I found that the carbon filter kills the flow to the point where you cant shower properly.
    If you put the filter first, the tank wont rust from the iron coming in and the tank will keep the pressure up.

    • Guy Tech

      @Andrew Theologo Pumps do not have built in pressure switches. issue is that the pump does not know the depth of the well. The deeper the well the more pressure is required to pump the water out of the well. The pressure which needs to be install at least at the top of the well.

    Nice job, bet your are glad to have fully plumbed water now. One suggestion move the iron filter before the tank and a second sediment filter between the iron filter and the well. This will keep the sediment and iron out of the tank. You are likely going to need a larger iron filter. They are available in a larger tank like a water softener, with these there, is no filter to purchase and replace they do need to be back flushed and recharged every so often, good ones have fully automatic back flush and salt brine regeneration.
    The activated carbon filters are usually coconut charcoal in a block or granular (GAC) form. When replacing these filters you need to flush them to the drain for a couple minutes to wash out all the charcoal dust. Just run the water until it runs clear. Factoid: 1 gram of activated carbon has the surface area of an acre of land.

    When you have lots of roof space, why not just collect rain water in addition to the well water? You already have a big holding tank, so you could let the roof water into it, pump it from the tank through the filters and use it. Also you need a filter before the tank in the basement, to avoid all the silt and dirt accumulating inside your tank.

    I just replaced my pressure tank after 39 year of use. I found that I needed to at least once a year drain the tank and refill the bladder air pressure to prevent excess cycling of the well pump. As the tank got older I needed to do this check more often. I'll have to look into getting one of those iron/manganese filters, we have fairly hard water from our well.

      @Guy Tech No, the bladder broke earlier this year. I noticed that the pump was on and off a lot. It would pump up to full pressure, but the tank pressure would drop quickly as water was utilized without the bladder intact. What I was getting at with my original comment was that the bladder may lose pressure over time and need to be refilled back to the proper value occasionally.

    • Guy Tech
      Guy Tech 4 ай бұрын

      What likely happened is the bladder broke a long time ago. Pressure tanks only last about 10 to 12 years. Once the bladder breaks it won't be able to maintain pressure. You can also get sick from a pressure tank as bacteria can grow & make you sick.

    A suggestion, I wouldn’t put the filters and pressure tank in the crawl space, not for any other reason than it’s a pain to change and if the tank ever fails, it’s a huge pain to get it out of there. Usually you would want all of that stuff at ground level or at least where you can get it out of there on a flight of stairs instead of a step ladder. In the case of a catastrophic failure, it’s nice when these systems are located in the garage, in those cases they typically drain out of the garage bay.

    I have been watching your build for a couple of years and enjoy what your doing and your family. As you were installing the new water system tank and filters, I saw what may be a code error in your wiring. In our area south of Portland, you cannot wiretie Romex to a pipe as in your pex to the pressure tank pressure switch. I would suggest you bring the Romex to a box on the wall then conduit from the box to the pressure switch. You may also want to put a switch in that box to disable the pressure switch right there if needed. Hope this helps.

    Hola Martin, no soy un experto pero la logica me dice que deberias cambiar la configuración de los filtros, esta pasando agua con el contenido de hierro por el filtro de carbón y debería ser el último para garantizar que el agua quede completamente limpia. Otra cosa que deberias hacer es colocar un filtro de sedimentos antes de tanque de presión para garantizar un mayor tiempo de vida.

    Great video Martin. As I'll be pumping rain water from an ingroungd concrete rank collected from the roof. Would you suggest 1 sediment filter before the pressure tank then two carbon filters and a UV FILTER after the pressure tank?

    “LB” = opening on the “Back”. LR and LL, opening on the left or right holding the short end in your hand and long end pointing away from you.

    having put in hundreds of wells in the past as well as servicing hundreds more add something like a iSpring WSP100ARB Spin Down Sediment Water Filter before the pressure tank! you can see the sediment so you know when to open the trap to empty heavy particulates as well as when to remove the filter to clean it.

    Great video thank you very much.
    We myself and my wife just bought the plot of land.
    We've built a small temporary home. We built it out of timber. So that we can stay on site while we build the actual property. It was good watching your video because. Where you've built a basement. Is exactly what I want to do. We have yet to drill for the water. They say that in the area that we are it might be up to 100 m. When we build the actual property that we are going to live in permanently. I'm going to try and do the same that you have done.
    So again thank you very much
    All the best

    An "LB" is so called because it is an "L" connector with the other (the short end) end coming out the back. A different type coming out the left is an "LL" and coming out the right is an "LR". And put a Romex connector on that LB.

    Glad you got good clean water. Alot of people that live near river here has iron water. They use some kind filter system with salt

    This system is probably installed on a lot of homes that have a well. I never had one before and wasnt aware that a bad pressure tank causes that pressure to constantly fluctuate, the needle drops and builds up often instead of a working tank which keeps the needle steady. This also causes the pump to work too much, probably wearing it out.

    OOPS never use Rector Seal on any plastic. If you do not like teflon tape, use a Teflon based paste. just an fyi. also put a check valve between the tank tee and the filter, so you do not draw water back from the house. filter placement. sediment, iron manganese then carbon. never use the wrench to tighten the can, it is an o'ring seal. the wrench is to remove them

    Electrical suggestion:
    You should've made your well connection in a Junction box, it's against code to have splicers in a Conduit.

    If I was only allowed one suggestion...put the carbon/polishing filter last for best taste. The KDF/iron&mag filter after your sediment filter. If you are really worried about ppm, and/or viral/bateria load at certain times of year you should really be using a small RO system under the kitchen sink. imho.
    Like other guys said, another not so fine sediment filter before the tank is also worth while. You can buy washable ones.

    for iron, you need aeration and settling tank before sent the water into a holding tank.
    after that you can use iron filter.

    Martin, did you do a video when you installed the "emergency "hand pump at the well? our well is about the same depth as yours, I had no idea you could use a manual pump on a well that deep! if you didn't do a video, please tell me the manufacturer of it.
    Thanks! You two are so fun to watch and truly a blessing!

    What brand pump and model do you have? What psi do you end up with? Do you have a pressure tank? What depth did you put the pump?

    Bypassing your filters just puts the dirty water in your water line that you're trying to clean up. The shutouts are perfect to shut it off and drink and change filters and turn it back on

    Our family used to build cisterns and we put them in for holding the water from a well with low flow I've drank a lot of different tasting water but I found one I couldn't drink it had a high iron content and a high soda content with the high soda content it was smooth and soft going down but the high iron content it felt like it was going right on through it was the only well water I couldn't drink although the well we have now is a second one I can't drink it's got a high coal content and I've been afraid to try and drink it so we buy buy our drinking water but we use the well for everything else

    Hello Julie and Martin. Will you put a sealant like Flex Seal, but not necessarily that brand, on the concrete blocks to prevent moisture from coming through the blocks when the snow melts in the spring? Plenty of dust under the house. I would have liked to have seen the both of you with a mask on even though the audio might have been muffled a little. Martin, did you have all of the knowledge to complete all of the tasks at your house or did you consult different people? Have good days!

    Cable/wire/pex or anything spooled would be much easier to handle/work with if you unroll it instead of pulling it off the side of the spool/coil.
