Question about Jet Plumbing
Check the voltage to the well pump if it is correct then you know you have correct power to it if you don't them the pump control has a issue and will need to be services as to other possible issues take the pipe off the top of the well head and run the pump if you get a good flow out of the pipe then chances are your pump is ok attach a shut off valve to the pipe and slowly close but not all the way see it it builds pressure if this is ok check the pressure tank if you have one. these have a bladder inside that allows the water to be at a constant pressure it will be a small tank depending on your set up you have.
on the top of it their should be a small valve like a tire valve stem use a tire Gage and check the pressure if their is none look on the tank it will state what it should be.
add air to the setting stated. if pressure will not build or water comes out then the batter is bad inside and will need replacement some you can do just the bladder others you have to replace the unit what this unit does is when you use the water the tank supplies the house pressure till is get to a point then the pump will start and charge the system.
if it is bad the pump will keep running trying to maintain the pressure and over heats witch will heat the breaker the breaker should not be hot a slight warm to the touch only. and can total the pump.
if when you apply power to the pump if no water or the pressure don't build with the valve then you will need to pull the pump and have it serviced at same time have the well checked to see if it collapsed or water table dropped then it may have to be drilled deeper. all ways be careful playing with power and water take the right safety precautions. when disconnecting the pipe to test for flow don't do it right at the top of the well head you can drop the pump then your in a world of hurt do it down the line some like toads or at the pressure vessel not after that you want to isolate the issues with each unit it will be less hassle and nor as expensive . these are the exact steps a well driller would to to check but charge you a ton.
i hope this helps
