Question about Flotec Corrosion Resistant Shallow Well Jet Pump 1/2HP, 8GPM
Posted by Anonymous on
I'm going to suggest that your pump(s) have the same symptoms of cardiac failure and you're bleeding out. the pump is trying to keep the pressure in the system. it works but you're losing your prime is my guess. the pump is initially fine and tries to maintain its pressure but cannot. it runs until its hot or burns out. and then it dies.

SOURCE: I replaced old pump w/
The water and therefore the pressure has to be going somewhere. If you are sure that there are no leaks in the house or outside, then the water is going back into the well. There is a check valve either in the suction line of the pump between the top of the well and the pump or down in the well.
If this check valve fails, it allows water to go the wrong way and back to the well. The result is that you lose pressure.
Secondly, you have to be sure that there are no air leaks between the top of the well and the inlet to the check valve. Leaks in that piping will make repriming difficult.
Write back with more and I'll try to help more.
