Water pump will not stop running and pressure gauge reads 0-10.

Customer Question

water pump will not stop running and pressure gauge reads 0-10. We do have water when the pump is running
JA: Sometimes plumbing issues that that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Plumber I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so we can help you best.
Customer: The pump does not need to draw from the well, because we are on a spring that is gravity fed to the pump. Pump won't shut off and the pressure gauge shows 0-10
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Plumber should know?
Customer: We were away yesterday, and when we got home the toilet bowl water was very dirty
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Plumber about your situation and then connect you two.
