I have a well that is not pumping the water into the Tank. I have removed the well head outside and I can hear the pump working. I also noticed there is alot of water onground around the well head and half way down my lawn. May have ben running for a while? Not sure where to go with this? Checked alll the internal controls, switch, control box, all seem OK. Any thoughts?
I replaced the TEE into the tank earlier today. I had no water at all this morning and did a little troubleshooting. I removed the Switch, cleaned out the pipe and the other lines, replaced the Pressure gauge,re hooked everything back up, still no water pressure being generated?
It sounds like there is a broken pipe in the yard. If you turn the shut off in the house off does the pump keep running?
You mean the water shut off? or the Power shut off?
Anything else you might suggest?? I have had the pump turned off for about an hour now. There is no longer any water surrounding the well casing.
No doubt there is a leak between the pump and the house. To confirm turn the shutoff at the house after the pressure gauge and see if the pump keeps running. If the pressure switch is working pressure will build up and the pump will turn off. If the pump doesn't turn off start digging where the ground is wet.
i have been doing plumbing work for 20 years. lots of work on high end homes along with a lot of service work.
