Hello my name is Wade. I look forward to helping you.
So when you first woke and turned on water did any flow?
Then you reset breaker and it pressurized but still got no flow?
After five minutes of running water?
Sounds like you have a leak in the system. Can you isolate it to just the pressure tank?
There should be a check valve that prevents it from flowing back into well
Does your switch have a lever on the side?
No you have two separate problems
Upload a pic of the piping from well to tank please
I can't see a check valve in the picture. I think you may have had debris in a check valve somewhere and also in the nipple below the pressure switch. Not allowing it to measure the pressure.
I would replace the galvanized tee and nipple below the switch. It's common for it to fill with rust. Use brass.
Check valve can be inside vertical of well casing. Is it s deep well?
40 - 0 could be bad check. Can you take pic of well head?
It's 3:30 here. Your question woke me up. I'd like to help you now so I can go back to sleep. But I need the pic.
Damn still no visual check valve.
That's a good start but I'm afraid it's going to need pulled to put on a new check.
It could be an underground leak between well head an tank too
If I answered your question could you leave me a positive rating. And if you feel I deserve one tips are great too.
