Most well water is pumped out of the ground automatically with the help of a submersible pump, or a jet pump that fits on top of the ground and draws water out of the ground to create water pressure for the home. Few well water systems use a big storage tank to store the water before it is pumped again to the house. To get more information, visit at http://www.greatbasinindustrial.com/water-and-wastewater

Deep well.
Pressure valve located on front of above-ground-storage-tank will turn pump on-off depending on amount of water pressure inside tank.
When water is consumed inside home, the pressure valve responds to the lower pressure and closes electrical contacts... sending electricity to water well pump located deep underground.
The pump turns on and lifts water through a pipe into the above ground storage tank.
When the tank is full of water, the pressure valve senses the higher pressure and turns off electricity going to pump
Pump shuts off.
There is a one-way check valve on the water line going down to pump, and this keeps water from flowing back down into well.
The above ground tank maintains water pressure for the house.
When pressure is reduced by taking a shower, the pressure valve turns pump on again, and cycle repeats.

What cause gas in water

Gas with an odor? or just bubbles of air? If you can smell gas , turn gas to home off, call gas company. If just bubbles of air, the water company or plumber near by has made a repair that caused air to enter the distribution system thus eventually arrive at your home and goes to the highest outlet faucet.

Pump is plugged into a hot line and will not run. It ran just over 3 months and quit totally.

Hello Mr Johnson.
I will help.
I am timer expert at fixya. Fixya answers question. We are not home depot or warranty carrier for grunfos.
Here are some ideas:
1) Buy another pump at home depot and return defect in new package
2) Talk to manager at Home Depot.
3) Check if outlet has power. Plug recirc pump into different outlet.
4) Check if override lever is set to OFF, because pump will not run when lever is in OFF position: Here is photo I took showing positions for lever:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-recirculation-system.html#lever
5) These devices are prone to surge event. Nearby lightning strike can burn out any electrical device by energizing wires. The surge can follow any path seemingly random trying to find path down to ground.
Add a comment and say what happens.

We have a one year old home with PEX pipe and one year old hot water heater fed by a water softener. In one of the bathroom sinks, and only there it seems, there is a sulfur smell when we first open the...

i would check the softener before the water heater, when was the last time you did a back flush of the system? water sitting at the bottom of a water softener tank can get moldy and begin to rot, which causes H2S gas which smells like sulfur , its a breakdown of decay,, this will also happen if your home is using well water,, so check that first , empty the tank and clean it our ,, then back flush the system

Is the pump flow to or away from the watermaker?

In city water or well water system ... the cold water flows from the tank (or meter) toward the hot water heater. The cold water splits in two (so to speak) at the heater with one part going on to the house to supply all cold water needs while the other part goes into the water heater to be heated. On the other side of the hot water heater, there is a system that paralles the cold water system to supply the hot water needs of your home.

I hope this answers your question.
