Question
Cold weather 4 degrees turn faucets on next am Blackwater cameout all sinks  washer new watersofter pump ogn well hot water heater new in last couple years.

Answer
I'm not sure what you mean about the washer new watersofter pump ogn well hot.

But the black water is probably sulphur off the pipes that accumulates over the years.  When the pipes freeze, they push the black stuff off and send it out through the faucets.  It's normal with well water and nothing to worry about.

Expertise

I am a Water Well Driller and Water Pump technician. I own a business in Riverview, Fl. We repair motors and pumps in shop and in the field. We repair and replace submersible and jet pumps, galvanized and bladder tanks, and their controls. Water filtration is another one of our specialties.

Experience

I started drilling and repairing wells and pumps with my dad in 1958 at the age of 13 years. I worked with him on weekends and in the summer when not in school. After graduating high school, I worked for my Dad until going into the Army in 1968. I spent three years in the Army then went back into the Well Drilling/Repair field.
