I have a 120 ft deep rock well and use 1.5 HP submersed pump. My water pressure is fine at 20-40
and the pump does not run all-the-time. However, each time my pressure falls enough for the switch to cut on,
it rattles loudly two or three times just to cut on.
Everything works fine after that until next time it has to cut on again. I remember when it used to be so quiet that I could hardly tell whether my pump had cut on or not, so I know something isn't right. Normally, this wouldn't bother me, but since my house is cooled using a water-source heat pump, I can hardly sleep at night because this loud clicking noise occurs repeatedly whenever the heast pump cycles on, somtimes as frequently as every nine minutes, but the pump is cutting on every 40-50 seconds unitl the heat pump shuts back off.
I have theorized that my pump is so powerful that it must be jolting the switch each time it initially turns on, causing the pressure to immediately rise high enough that the switch turns the pump back off.
If anyone can tell me how to fix this pressure switch to quietly click on once again, maybe I can get some sleep.
