    New Shallow well pump not building up pressure

    I just replaced the shallow well pump with same Horse Power as the old one. For some reason the new pump is not able to build pressure over 10psi. It primes good.

    How does a drain back valve / Bleeder Orifice work on a foot valve water pump system which might have air leaks?

    I have cistern which is filled either by truck or pumped from the lake. To connect to the cabin, there is a pipe with a foot valve at the bottom, and a pump with a pressure tank at the bottom of the cabin. My setup is a bit different since we don't have a basement, and the pump is closer to...

    Drop Pipe Will Not hold water

    A corroded and clogged foot valve led to hubby replacing the entire drop pipe system. After putting the new drop pipe down (w/ assembly.. new foot valve, ejector, etc), he ran water down the pipe just to be sure we didn't have any issues like leaks. The water just kept on going, as if the foot...
