no idea. on the 3/4 " foot valve.
Not sure what you mean by leak proof connection at the sand point. It's driven into the ground. the pipe must have a very small leak in the ground letting it loose prime overnight. That's why I thought about just putting a pipe inside of a pipe. Its just for...
can i do the 3/4 all the way down the 1 1/4 inch pipe then go into the pump? the pump has a one inch inlet. Any for seen problems with either of these options? Wasn't sure if the 3/4 inch pipe would be too small for the pumps suction?
Water comes out of the faucet when you first turn it on . After about 2gallons comes out the pump turns on. Then the water stops coming out and the pump is still running. Then the pressure gauge drops to zero. Pump is still running after 30 seconds or so the water starts coming out again ...

If i needed to could i drop a 1 inch pvc pipe with a foot valve into the 1 1/4 steel pipe, hook that up to my pump and pull water that way?

I am not following you ? Does this mean you can not use teflon tape or pipe dope on a union ?
The union is between the pump and the check valve . How else would you get the pump disconnected if you need to?
What do you mean by the union and check valve explains the cycling?
The pump did not start only the one time , has been starting ever since. Just can;t figure out why water comes out at first then stops and then builds pressure again and starts pumping water.
So, I hooked up a shallow well pump. Let it run with a garden hose. ran fine for like and hour with no probems.
The pump shut off when the water valve was shut off like it should.
left it off for 1 bout 1 week. When I finally needed it , i opened the spikot valve water came out for about...
