Just starting to get sand in water

Well running well for 25 years
First time closing of house for winter, draining the system and pressure tank in December
At that time noted sand coming out into the sump pump when I drained the system, probably from pressure tank
Just started it up two weeks ago and had a bit of sand, it went away but now more fine sand has returned.

Pump pressure is fine, recent bout of sand came the day after I did a few hours of watering gardens

What type of well do you have? I have seen steel well casings rust through and start letting dirt/sand into the well.
