Did you replace the check valve?
and reprime the pump?
also if the screen at the bottom of the well is plugged you wont get enough volume too fill antthing,and the bladder tank should only run about 2/3 full the pressure on that should be 2 lbs below the pump pressure!!!
if you find that the screen a the bottom of the well is plugged too need too by tablets at the hardware store too put down it cost about 30.00!!

Property well is dry

Are you saying you well is not pumping water. If so it may not be the well it could be the water level has dropped down and you need to add a length of pipe to it or the foot valve on the end of the pipe that lets the water in to be pumped up is plugged. What type of pump is on the well is it a shallow well pump or a deep well pump usually the deep well pumps are outside and down in the well casing. The pump may of lost its prime and it will just run and not pump water or if there is a air tank on the system it may just need air in the tank, when the tank gets low on air you won't have to much pressure when you turn the water on. Let me know.

Water not going into well water tank

Is the pump running when power is ON?
Put ear against pipe and listen for pump.
Have you installed a check valve?
Check vlave lets water pass through the pipe and enter tank, but the valve closes after pump shuts off and keeps water from falling back down into well.

Will not prime

My pump didn't pump until I filled the 'suction side' pipe with water before I attached the pipe to the pump. The suction pipe needs a foot valve if you have a long lift from the water to the pump. Then pour water into the pump on the outflow side. Should pump fine . It'll purge the air out after a little bit if you filled the pump with enough water. I almost bought a relacement pump but then realized that the foot valve wasn't sealing and the suction pipe wasn't holding water. We have about a 8 foot vertical draw to the pump . Good luck.

I have just bought a new pump for my solar heating, and i change over the pumps attached all the pipes and turned on the pump and nothing is working, there is no water flowing through it, and not even any...

Centrifugal pumps require priming with water before they will pump anything. Loosen one of the pipes and pour in as much water as will stay. Hope this helps!

Installing an air pump in a 5000 litre tank

The pump must be mounted nearest the 5000 liter tank. The air intake will be the air sorrounding the area, while the discharge low pressure air must be pipe to underwater level such that the air discharge of the air pump bubble up the water (aerate the water) inside the tank. This is common in fish pond/ shrimps pond/ and water treatment plants. Electrical wiring is
standard for the electric motor and controls.

I have a brand new relay yet my fuel pump will not respond on my 1998 Honda NT 650. ANY SUGGESTIONS? Thanks.

Are you sure it doesnt respond? i thought the same and even bought a new one still no change.
I found out the if you empty the pump of fuel and the line leading in that you"ll hear it over the engine noise as a slight clicking noise till it gets full and quiets down. also i took on of the line off just to make sure the gas was being pumped out when it was quiet.

Leaks water in the counter.

I fixed mine for 25p... you need to take the back off, and the tank holder out (2 screws each). There is a very thin pipe that comes out the pump - that is the leak.
Unclip the little clip and pull out the pipe and fish out the black o-ring out the hole.
Buy a new o-ring and put back together... no leaks =)
