Question about Flotec Corrosion Resistant Shallow Well Jet Pump 1/2HP, 8GPM
I have a 1/2 horse pump and a 30 gal bladdered holding tank. Just redrove a point 12 1/2 feet from basement floor. water is sitting in 1 1/4 pipe 6 1/2 feet down. I have a check valve on top and 3 feet of pipe run up andelbowed into pump. water is pumping fine at 20/40psi cut off and on. problem getting lots of air after pump runs and when first turning on faucets.
SOUNDS LIKE A CRACKED SUCTION STUB OR LOOSE THREADED FITTING SUCKING IN AIR.
OR THE CHECK VALVE IS FAILING AND ALLOWING THE WATER TO LEAK BACK SLIGHTLY OR ALL THE WAY BACK. YOU CAN ALSO ADD A FOOT VALVE AT THE END OF THE PIPE.
LONG SHOT, BUT THE BLADDER TANK IS CHARGED WITH AIR AND MAY HAVE A HOLE IN THE BLADDER CAUSING THE TANK AIR TO ENTER THE SYSTEM. SHOULD RUN OUT QUICKLY THOUGH. HOPE THIS HELPS, JODY
