: help....installing a new shallow pump.....old one took the gas .........need advice.......
What kind of advice would you like? What happened to the old one? Are you sure it's bad? have you looked at the electrical circuit breaker? The shallow pump is likely 25 feet deep or less. The motors are very reliable. Are you SURE you have water in the well for the pump to lift? We are in a drought condition in most of the country, where do you live? Have you contacted LICENSED well companies for an estimate?
