Water leaking back to the well?
Posted by Tony on October 17, 2001 at 21:33:42:
Hi,
I noticed my well pump cycling when there was no water usage. If I press my ear against the pipes near the well tank I hear hissing. The hiss still goes on when I turn off my main valve. I'm concluding from this that the water must be going back into the well.
the pump is a 220V submerged type. Kicks on at 40psi and back off at 60.
If the water is going back into the well where is the "check valve"? Down under ground with the pump? or at the switch near the tank in my basement?
I don't know how deep the well is.
Any info you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Tony
