Question about Plumbing
Sounds like the foot valve may be loosing it's prime. I would let it pump for a few minutes and then shut it off. Then after a few minutes disconnect the line going into the well. If the line has water in it and the water level is going down, you have either a bad foot valve or a leak in the lines going down into the well. It could be as simple as a loose connection. Hope this helps. I use to sale well pumps and have seen this many times. If you let the problem continue and the pump continues running it will throw the overload or will burn the pump motor up.
