In response to Re: deep well pump
Disconnect it from the tank and put a pressure gauge on it to see if the pump will push 50 psi against the gauge for seven to ten minutes.

: I'm trying to use an abandoned well to water my garden.After sitting idle for several years, I'm wanting to use the existing pump and tank. I cleaned the pump and impeller and it works fine until I put it on the tank. The tank doesn't build any pressure. I've tried pressurizing it with an air tank and that didn't work. Any advice will be appreciated.
