How to test for vacuum leaks on suction line?
My home is on a shallow well system (30-40 Feet) and the pump stopped moving any water. The old pump had no vacuum on the inlet side of the pump. This pump was in the house when I bought it 10 years ago so I assumed the pump had lived its life. I installed a new 1/2 hp pump replacing the old 1/3 hp unit.
After installing the new pump, filling it with water to prime per the instructions I am still not getting any water. I pulled the plug on the ejector housing and covering it with my thumb I can tell that I'm getting vacuum.
Any commets would be helpful. If I didn't state my situation clear enought please ask me your questions
