  5. Two water well motors in a month.

    We have a one year old water well for watering our 12 zone yard. Just a month ago it stopped working so we replaced the submersible 1 hp Wellsub pump, pressure tank and pressure switch. I worked for about two weeks and now the submersible pump motor is burned up? The tank pressure is set at 38 psi and the pressure switch is a 40/60 the well is 70 ft deep with the pump at 60 ft. Any ideas on what is causing the motors to go out?
