Im hot sure from your description what is happening. If you have a sump pump they have to sit in a few inches of water to work properly. Can you put it in a lower spot

Submersible well pump runs 5 seconds stops. No water. Replaced pressure switch,capacitor looks good,air in tank.Ran water during last cold spell still froze.Please help.

Place an amp probe clamp around the wire going from press switch to pump. Start pump and take amperage reading. If the amp draw is higher than the rating on the pump, the pump shaft is broken. This causes the motor to run wild and draw too much amperage because of no flow resistance from the water. This will overheat the pump causing it to shut off on overload. Gooid luck!

Hubby installed new pump and it shortcycled for awhile then, no psi... not even sure about the condition of the pressure tank ... when water does come it works for a short time and then trickles and stops...

Did he install a self-priming pump, sometimes the will not prime or this one is stopped up from dirt. also is it submersed in the water or above water level. if it is submersed and is not meant to be, it's probably toast and you need to replace it with a submersible type pump that is also self priming. To find the schematic for your system go to your manufacturer, I'm now assuming that this is a recreation type situation, trailer, motorhome. There at the dealer the parta department should be able to help you. Hope I helped.

Water ace pump it will pump it out but it comes back in

Do you mean it won't pump last inch of water or so? sump pumps are not designed to pump completely dry. vane pumps will pump dry. If you are pumping from one tank to another and after pumping is complete, and fluids transfer back, install a check valve on output hose to prevent back-siphoning , or don't submerge output hose on other tank. Hope this helps.

No water from well.

If the water pressure reads 50 psi, then, the submersible pump is running okey. Do these:
1. Shut the power off.
2. Release the pressure of the tank by opening the
gate valve and free the air inside.
3.Drain the water inside your pressure tank empty by
opening the drain plug at the bottom.
4. Then, replace the drain plug .
5. Check the flow control valve. From full close
position, adjust to 1/4 open position. However, if it
is using a gate valve as flow control, Just open two
full turn counter clockwise.
6. Put the power on.
7. And start the submersible pump and allow it to
run until the pressure tank is pressurized.
8. At 20 psi pressure, open your faucet, and see if
you've got water.

I would like to know the result, so just send in your e-mail . Thanks and God bless you.

Our submersible well pump is surging, comes on and off about four times until the pressure has built up causing the pipes to make noise what can we do to fix it?

this is extremely hard on the pump. i would say off hand that your pressure sw is bad or in need of adjustment. also make sure that your pressure tank is not water logged. you do this by cutting the power to the pump and draining the system. when no water comes out of the hose there should be no water in the tank. if there is if its a captive air "bladder style" you need to replace. if its a standard either your snifter vavlve is bad or your level valve in the tank is bad. good luck ive run off wells for years and know what a trying experiance this can be

I have a jacuzzi 1/2 hp submersible well pump. Does this need any regular maintainance to keep it happy.

No preventative maintenance is necessary. However, a happy pump always has water above it and should not pump sand. If the water level in the well is below the pump/motor they will overheat. If this is a problem your local pump company can install a module to protect your pump from this type of event.
