    How to check a submersible well pump in 180' well

    We purchased a mobile home on a small lot from an older gentleman who resells property he buys from courthouse tax auctions. The mobile home has been empty about 4 years and we are trying to check what needs done to get water into the home. There was no hot water tank or pressure tank...

    Water pump cycling off and on. Switch stays on. Pressure at gauge drops to 10 PSI.

    This just started. With the shower running, the water completely stopped. After about a minute it turned back on. It did this a few more times. I watched the gauge at the pressure tank manifold and it was at 30 PSI (which is the cut on point). It then stopped, but the switch didn't click...

    Well water suddenly dirty, well pump power fluctuates... is it a disaster? (SOLVED)

    (1 day after installing new white sediment filter) After being out-of-town for a month, the well pump protection circuit kept tripping due to high load. After testing, the well pump resistance is normal, but the running pump's amperage varies 7--20A (after bypassing protection circuit). Also...

    Using Iron Filters Between Well Head and Water Storage Tanks

    We want to filter iron, manganese from a new well, prior to it entering a couple of 5,000 gallon storage tanks. . Our Iron levels are .740 mg/l and Manganese .051 ppm. There is also a slight sulfur smell (hydrogen sulfide), but figure the filter will be able to deal with that as well. Water...

    Noisy VFD

    Hi, We are remodeling a house and installed a 3 phase, 5 HP pump and VFD. We finally have the house all insulated and sealed up with all the doors and windows fully installed and painted, and the pump is running. However it is way louder than I expected, probably as loud as a small hotel hair...

    Fleck Softener?

    I'm on well water with 24 GPG hardness + 2 GPG for .5PPM iron. We're a family of 5 averaging 400 gallons per day. Correct me if I'm wrong, but my math is coming out to roughly 73,000 grains. 26 GPG x 400 = 10,400 x 7 = 72,800 GPG. At 65% efficiency I would need a 112,000 GPG unit. I was...

    Installing Second Tank Questions.

    Hey guys, I've learned quite a few things from this forum already, but there is one thing that I can't quite get through my head. My well is a submersible pump that was installed before I bought the house almost 5 years ago now. I was told it's about 15-20 foot deep. My main problem is that I...

    1/2 HP vs 1 HP

    My house gets water from a well, the current setup I have is well-pressure tank-house. I was told that adding a water storage tank would be beneficial as it would decrease the amount of times my downhole cicles on/off, so the setup I want to install is well-water storage tank-jetpump-pressure...
