I had an excavation guy put in some underground gallies and pipe my outside downspouts out to these gallies.
In the process he busted my incoming water main (city water), this was about 4 feet down, the hole filled with muddy/dirty water before the city turned the water off.
This guy did not tell me to turn off my mains, and then when it was back on, did not open up to an outside spigot and let it run out.
So now I have sediment running in the line because that water filled that muddy hole about the pipe before it got turned off. Since then I have been cleaning my faucet screens often, and that seems to help, but the pressure in the house definitely seems to be much lower than it used to be. Forget the shower heads, they have almost no pressure at all anymore, I am going to take them off and run those lines for about 15 minutes and put new heads in to see of that clears those out.
Is there anything that can be done after the sediment is already in the system?
