Jacuzzi Brothers 1/2 Hp 8gpm 2 Wire Sumbersible Well Pump R5sub82 - Answered Questions & Fixed issues
I have a jacuzzi 1/2 hp submersible well pump.
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.

Our water pressure stopped overnite, we hit the
The clicking you hear inside the little box is the contacts that send power to the pump. They have probably gotten corroded to the point they would not make contact. By kicking on and off you probably loosened some carbon, it was still making a poor connection and carboned up again. Only this time causing the points to stick open (so no clicking) You can take this switch apart and give it a good cleaning then reset the points. Or you can get a new switch and install it on the system. Ether way be sure that the power is off for these operations as this is all the power going to the pump.

What to do about sediment comming in pipes in
I believe sediment filter inline would take care off this.The only thing I can think of is that you have the wrong kind of
sediment filter on your line. You may want to check what the size of
the screen is, or what the micron size the filter will take out. Too
big of filter will let the small **** through, but too little will plug
up super fast. Sometime you have to take the good with the bad until
what ever caused the disturbance in your well is done.

Do I put oil in the gas????
Yes or no
We aren't mind readers, we have absolutely no idea what you have!!!
On most small garden items like trimmers and chainsaws, yes. On mowers with 4 stroke engines, no! Does it have valves? Valves mean 4 stroke, no oil, No valves means 2 stoke, so oil mix.
make model manual
make model gas oil mix
Old ones are 20 or 25 to 1, modern are 40 to 50 to 1.
