The pipes burst while it was in foreclosure and the well filled the basement. A year after I bought the house I had to pull the well head to install a new check valve. They charged me $400 to pull the head to the first union and installed the check valve in it's place. The beginning of this year I installed a whole house filter and three months later it is pure black.

Would a new well solve this issue or am I stuck with it due to my location and soil conditions? Also, where could I take my old filter for testing?

I would post pics, but it seems the uploader is not mobile friendly. ....
