: Can you tell me how do you prime a new jet well shallow pump

Mary, You need a foot valve or a check valve between the pump and the well. Take the plug off the top of the pump and fill the pump and pipe with water. Put the plug back on a little over hand tight and turn the pump on. Some air may work its way out of the pump through the plug. Make sure you turn off the main valve feeding the house. Idealy it would be nice if you had a valve between the pump and tank to close just for priming pupposes.You may have to repeat the priming untill it finally primes itself. Hope this Helps.
