    Well pump was running but would not build any pressure.I thought the pump lost suction but there was plenty of water in the pump. I bled a small amount of air from the bladder tank and the pump started pumping and reached shutoff pressure.The system operated ok for about 24 hours. Now the same conditions exists. I am trying to minimize my expenses with the system. I will be tying into public water in several weeks.
