I'm glad I found this forum. I have a problem I can't seem to figure out. We have an old remodeled farmhouse with an old well. I don't really have many problems with it except if you run water to long sometimes it will lose its prime. It has been a dry summer so far and last wekend I used a pressure washer. When I noticed the water starting to spit I stopped using it. Now 3 days later the pump runs and will only get to 30 pounds of pressure on the guage never reaching the cutoff pressure, which is 40. I have to unplug it to stop it from running. Would this happen if the well water is low? The pressure switch setting are 20 / 40. Any ideas or advise will be appreciated.
