: Hi I need advise on how to reprime a submerged pump, awhile ago the lines to the pump were broken,
: and since then it seems like the pump just keeps on running, I was told that maybe the pump lost it's
: prime, there is a small holding tank attached to the lines of the well. Any info would help.Thanks
: so much for your time.

Bea, A submergiable pump does not need primed. You have another problem.The pressure switch may be plugged off. If this pumps all the time you are certianly not getting very much water or you have a wide open line somewhere.Make sure you have a new pressure guage on this system so you can tell what it is doing. Hope this helps. Dale Peck
