Something is wrong in your pressure tank, possibly waterlogged and rusting.

the water makes the sediment wet and causes it to move.

sediment causes H2O to discolor. also sediment causes some submerged vegetation to die.

There is a certain amount of sediment in all well water - it is coming out of the ground remember. Every well should have a sediment filter before the pressure tank.

The overburden pressure removes air and water, and therefore space, from between sediment particles.

You have to undo the aerator at the end of the faucet and clean the screen or plastic water saver out. It will be plugged with sand or sediment.

Unscrew the aerator from the end of the faucet where the water comes out and clean the screen. Sediment build up slows the flow.

What causes water pressure to decrease in home on well water?

There are no following conditions. Pressure will make loose sediment into rock, the pressure may derive from the weight of water or other rocks above the sediment.

from the water picking up brown sediment, i.e. dirt

By the water moving on it makes it get wet and causes it to move

There is often sediment because it comes out of the ground and up a steel pipe. Fit a sediment filter at the pressure tank, it's very easy.There is often sediment because it comes out of the ground and up a steel pipe. Fit a sediment filter at the pressure tank, it's very easy.

You use a sediment filter before the pressure tank.

Turbidity in rivers is caused by the flowing water picking up sediment, which muddies the water.

Any kind of restrictive device, such as a filter, added to your water supply will reduce pressure and supply a fraction. Your filter may be clogged with sediment from the supply water and should be flushed according to the manufacturer's recommendations. Most water systems should have a cartridge filter before the water treatment system to stop the sediment from entering the treatment filter. The replacement cartridge can then be changed as needed depending on the sediment in the water. The water supply lines should not be smaller than 3/4 inch pipe. This permits more volume of water even with a lower pressure. If you are on a well you can boost up the on and off pressure in the air tank by adjusting the pressure switch connected to the well pump. The air pressure in the tank must also be adjusted to 2 pounds less pressure of the new setting at the low end. Instructions for this can be found on the internet.

The water was most likely black because it was carrying a lot of sediment. Much of the rock in Japan is basalt, which is usually black.

There is a screen and/or a water saver in the shower head. The screen may be plugged with sediment from in the water.

You install a sediment filter before the pressure tank.

Sounds like a bad/failed water pressure regulator.

When the water is pumped into the holding tank, it contains fine particles of sediment that are not yet filtered out as they would be in a city water system. By the time the well water is delivered, most of the particles have settled into the bottom of the tank.

Leaks can be caused by all kinds of things:Sediment in the water heater can cause the pipes and pipe fittings to erode or can build up around the pressure relief valve and cause a leak thereExcessive pressure can build up in the tank, tripping said pressure relief valveDrain valve can loosen and water can leak out from there

When the vapour pressure becomes equal to the atmospheric pressure,water starts boiling.

Sediment can be lots of different things. If your on a well, you probably have naturally occurring minerals that tend to stick to your plumbing. After a while, these minerals will flake off and appear in your water. They are not harmful.

Possibly ferrous metal full of sediment
