Your experience has been noted ...thanks, and sorry for the that nasty experience.
I havn't winterized the trailer since I have owned it. The trailer is stored inside my shop.
thats a deep well! any bacteria or iron?
Yes, fairly deep considering the elevation here is only about 52'.
Never had the well tested. Had it drilled and started drinking the water after about 5-6 months of use. Water taste great and never had any health problems related to it. Thought about getting it test several times, but never got around to it.
From what I have read, problems can come from storing well water. The shelf life of well water can be a lot shorter than water from a municipal supply, about 6 months. In an emergency situation sites reccomend buying bottle water for storage as oppose to storing well water. Of course if you have a gen set you can just power the well anyway.
I think the problems multiplied when the bottle of water set in my warm truck and in the sunlight.
