Deep well pump not keeping prime or pressure
Hello, I'll make this short because I know how busy every one is. I'm a long time reader, but just had a question I couldn't figure out, so now I must post.
I just swapped deep well pumps in my house, the old was a 1/2 HP shitler, maybe 35 yrs old. Switch went bad, decided to replace the whole thing. So far, it's been a nightmare. I replaced it with a Water Ace 1/2 HP from lowes. My problem seems to be now that I can't hardly prime it, and when I do, the pressure is for crap, maybe 20lbs at the pump. I can get it to spike briefly at like 28 lbs. This is really irritating me as everyone is telling me I either need to pull my ejector, or get a new bigger pump. Please help.
Thanks to every one in advance.
