It obviously was a gradual thing, but for what ever reason I did not really notice until the water flow over my wheels was reduced to very little from minerals in the well water.

After cleaning all the lines, and running wire through the drip valves over the wheels, I am back to normal.

Funny that because it was such a slow and gradual build up that it just sorta seemed as though all was normal until it became really obvious that very little water was flowing.

I suppose if you have hard water the same thing could eventually happen too..

No way...... Bottled water only... Even for our cat !  :)

It is nice to have the 2500 gal water reservoir in the ground in case of some kind of catastrophe though..
