Our well water tastes good, but it's sandy. We only learned that we needed filters after two washing machines went kerblooey

The water in WNC is rather interesting really. The land is rich in sulfur and iron among other minerals. So, well water can be great or awful. It is usually really good if deep enough. You should keep in mind that lots of the small towns have papermills or plastic plants or something similar that do pollute the air, the land, thus the water. They all say that they filter the waste but I know that isn't enough to remove all harm --- We are having an issue now with fish dying in the local streams here.....but the Plants/Mills don't have anything to do with that so they say.
