Hi Folks-Great Website. Here's the dilemma. Act 1: Lakesite with sand/fine silt substrate. Our 45 year old Shallow Well jet pump and motor burned out and the local plumber replaced only to discover the sandpoint must of gone out as couldn't get any water. Act 2: Aging football players with pipes of their own to the rescue and drive a new 52" 1-1/4" 10 slot SS sand point 16.5 deep in record time (10' water table ),...oops,...Trogg broke the threads on a buried section while tightening,... too far to reach. Act 3: Test pump put into action and we get good water but also air probably due to the compromised casing. Act 4: Shove some 1" Poly down to the sandpoint, test again, good water but still with some air. Pulled the poly on the plumbers suggestion and direct hook up to the " New " Flotec pump from HD (installed earlier in the week)......can't get pressure up, low flow, can only get 10 psi on the system and the pump overheats. What can us cavemen do for an encore??
