Re: time for a new well?
It's also not regular browser friendly and you can't post pics anyway when you have fewer than 10 posts to your name. But that aside...

You may find that over time the situation will improve as things settle down, but it may take a year or more.
If your filter is a simple cartridge filter, 3 months is a typical lifetime. My well is high in brown/red sediment & rust, so I have to replace the filter cartridge about once a month.
To maximize the life of the filter cartridge, get the largest micron filtration you can get away with. If you get too much stuff passing through, go with a smaller micron rating.
