Dear Sir,

I have a submersible pump installed at my hometown - Gonda in UP. The water comes out good if we use the running water while the pump is running. However, the stored water turns to brownish red after 10 mins. It also leaves a lot of sleuth ( brownish red ) on all the buckets, tap and shower head. We are using RO to filter the drinking water. How can I treat this water to rectify the problem. Can I add a filter before the water hits my storage tank or to the pipeline from the tank to my pipelines? Thanks Amol.

Dear Sir,

This is S.Subramanian. I have two borewells in my home (70 feet and 200 feet). I recently dug the 200 feet borewell whereas the 70 feet was dug ~ 20 years ago. Can I use a single compressor pump to alternatively draw water from two borewells. I use 0.5HP jet pump as of now in the 70 feet borewell. The water level is dropping and hence I switch on every 5 hrs for 10 mins.

Thank you.
Yours Sincerely,
S.Subramanian

My house is having two water connection one is MCD and other one is private. Many times the MCD supply water we get is dirty and makes whole tank dirty. Initially we thought there might be some leakage so we put our whole pipe overground and checked it, it was clean and good. So everytime we get dirty water we have to empty the whole tank to clean it. It's wastage of water and we face problems also.
