if the pump is working correctly, it can either be, need more water to prime it, or something in the well, such as low water, plugged filter, etc....sometimes when you have a system that is intermittently used, it can take 20 or 30 minutes of continuous priming to get it to pull, enough water to maintain the prime.

Definately sounds like a leak in the pipes from the pressure side of the pump onwards, even the smallest leak will cause it to turn on to regain adequate pressure.

SOURCE: gould 1/2hp submergible well pump cycles on and

My first thought was that of a water logged tank which causes short cycling, from your notes the tank is good (the tank may be partially water logged though) If the tank is ok and your getting short cycling (and the switch is good) I would guess your check valve down the well has failed. As the pump creates pressure then shuts off the water may be going right back down the well causing the pump to cycle again. This could also account for the poor water pressure as the check valve may be stuck slightly open allowing the system to loose pressure but only allowing a small amount of flow by when running. There could be a leak within the pumps drop-pipe and your loosing pressure through this leak. I expect you'll have to have the pump pulled.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

SOURCE: jet pump does not pump water

I had a similar problem and as a last resort took the pump apart and cleaned it and the jet. It's a very old pump but works ok now.

SOURCE: Winterizing a well pump and pressure tank

If this is the pump I am thinking of, it should drain if you disconnect the hose to the pressure tank.

The other option is to place a "T" connection on the intake to the pump, between the pump and well. Place a garden hose valve on the new branch. After you drain your system, attach a 2' hose to the new valve and place the other end into some antifreeze. Run the pump to draw some antifreeze into the unit. This will protect it from freezing and rust over the winter.

I would consult a qualified plumber who will know about the coding for your area with regard to water pressures. They will be able to advise you.

Make sure any plumber is approved and carries the proper identification.

Remove spay head from the end of the sprayer hose and turn the water on. If you have good pressure without the head, call Delta and ask for a new spray head. If you still have low water pressure without the spray head attached, call Delta and ask for a new ceramic disc cartridge free.

Leaks water out of the back


Well, I am no plumber but I would think that 108 psi is a bit high for your plumbing system. I have this pump installed in my house and have the max pressure set at 50 with a PRV on the outlet side of the pump.

Hi davecross,

I'm Harvey, the Master Plumber.

Your question is:
water pressure not great would a external pump help. Depends on your situation. If you live in a house with a well pump then turn up the pressure. If you have city water and the pressure is lacking then either install a house pump after the meter or if it is just the shower you're worried about then a booster pump on the shower line is the ticket. Be aware that useing the booster may reduce the pressure at the other faucets in the house while it's being used. The house pump will not exhibit this. You will likely need a local pro to help you with installation. Feel free contact me again!
