I've got a sand point well with a pitcher pump on it. I'm down about 16 feet and have water in the bottom of the pipe. My problem is, as I pump the hand pump I get no water, it just creates a vacuum in the pipe. I've filled the pipe with water and still it developes a vacuum. I have put some tablets down the pipe that were supposed to unclog the pipe, but I still get a vacuum on the bottom leather seal of my pitcher pump! Any suggestions on what could be wrong? I think I have clay below the sand is it possible my pipe is driven too deep?
