muddy water in radiant system?

mark_103 Member Posts: 7
I was scratching my head a few week's ago.About 2 year's ago i installed my first radiant heat job! Yea. It consisted of a total of twelve zones including a boiler mate ans a little bit of baseboard. I used the "watts onyx" tubing.system worked fine and the homeowner is happy, but he called the other day and said he had a few minor leaks around the primary circulating pump and a few threaded male adaptors. I thought "no big deal", so I drained the system and fixed the leaks, but when I filled the system up and started purging it out the water had such a muddy color, I never seen anything like that before? After purging, it finally cleared up.Now they do have a well not city water and i noticed a little sand in it,but why was it so brown and thick? I'v seen alot of black water but never brown like this. Any Ideas? Mark.
