How Sediment Build-Up Happens

You want the water coming from your faucet and pipes to be clean, so when some tricky minerals and materials sneak their way through, it could bring bad news. Sediment build-up especially brings some bad news, as it’s one of the more tedious issues for your water. Here is how sediments can get into your system and what exactly you need to do to stop and prevent this. 

How It Happens

Sediment can be caused by a few problems, such as soft rock formation below the main well casing or erosion in water-bearing fracture, precipitated minerals, and damaged well casing. You’ll know you have a sedimentation problem if your water comes out murky with pieces of sand or dirt falling out as well. It can be a nuisance to deal with and could bring some long-term issues for your water-appliances and plumbing systems moving forward.
