no pressure build up on pressure gauge or
Posted by Tony Locash on June 08, 2004 at 10:35:27:
I rencently purchased a Sears Shaloow well pump and intalled a well. I don't have any material on the pump and have no knowledge of wells. I insert 30psi into the tank but it does not show any reading on the water gauge. I start the pump and still no reading on gauge but I am pumping water,very low pressure. Pump stays running and nevery stops. My question is two fold. Is the pump bad or is the well not getting efficent water? The well is down 19 feet and I am told by neighbors that 14 to 20 feet is about what the wells are in my area. Tanks for any info.
