Shallow Well/Prime Issue?
Been helping my son install a well for irrigation issues. We have hit good water, at about 20 to 22 feet,, whne we check in the line we have 7" 6" of standing water. The problem is we can not get the pump to draw the water up no matter what we do! We sand sucked the well with a 3" pipe, and then dropped a 2" pipe with the point down inside, and pulled the 3" back up to espose the full point. Do we need to completely pull the 3" out? Is it posible we are losing suction through it some how? The pump is located dirtectly over the well.
