Well pumping dry
Posted by Brian on March 06, 2004 at 15:33:44:
I needed a new footvalve and bladder tank last year and the well man talked me into a new submersible and then the problems started. He put in a fitness adapter and Grundfoss pump with 40 feet of pipe. My water head is at 22 feet which leaves only 18 feet of pipe in the well with a 4 inch casing. The well shuts off when filling the tub and needs 5 minutes to reset. I have 40 feet of pipe left from the old pump and was considering adding it to the new pump so I would have more water available. The well man insists on drilling a new well but I never had other problems before the new pump was added. Any over problems to look for?
