    JS10 good for 24 hours

    I think I know the answer to this, but the Goulds JS10 + CSV is good to just leave on and running over night right? Mainly to keep a good flow to prevent freezing. running form a water hose back into the storage tank. I have been testing it today just to see how hot the pump gets, its 26*...

    Question about replacing Resin

    I have a what I think its a nicer water softener. I don't know the age but everything works correctly. However it doesn't seem to be softening as well as it used to at all, its soft right after it regens, but it only lasts like 100gallons. I was talking to some folks and since I don't know the...

    CSV off well pump

    Filtering well to storage tank

    Is it worth filtering between the well and the storage tank(a)? Right now I have a screen filter on there just to catch any little gravel or anything, I think it’s 50 micron. Is it worth putting an actual sediment filter between there? I already have a spare 4.5x10 housing and filters, otherwise...

    Disable Jet pump when tank is low?

    I'm looking for ideas on how to setup something to disable my jet/booster pump if the water level in my tank is nearing the bottom. Something simple, mechanical. I'm not interested in any fancy control boxes or anything. If it's not simple Id rather bother. Thanks!

    Big pressure tank, won’t drain

    So I think I know the answer to this but I’m gonna ask anyways. my uncles pump seems to come on faster than it should. It’s a j10s on a 40/60 switch filling a larger pressure tank (80gal if I had to guess). It’s relatively new. Maybe 2 years old? Anyways, when I turn off his pump and let out...

    Smelly Hot Water bad... I can't figure it out.

    Hey all, I have been troubleshooting a rotten egg smell in my hot water for a while now. The smell kinda comes in bursts. It seems like we can shower for ~5mins or so and it's just fine, feels, and smells clean. Then the puffs of rotten egg smell start coming. If someone takes a shower right...

    Septic sprinklers making rings of green

    Hello, the septic sprinklers at my new house are making rings of green... any idea why? my theory is someone added a head or two and there’s not enough pressure for the gear heads to spray right. Two of the heads look like they were added afterwards by a homeowner... maybe? I was gonna try...
