Is your guess that shocking the well has as much effect on the water and the system after it leaves the well (i.e. filter, pump, pipes, tank) as it does on the water in the well?

Just curious as it seems at least around here every time there is a "boil water" order it is because some contamination has entered the system some place past the well field.
I never talked to anyone who had to fire their gun who said "I wished I had the smaller gun and fewer rounds with me" Just because you find a hundred people who agree with you on the internet does not mean you're right.
