    Ok so call it that. So youre saying I should change my pressure switch so my pump runs longer.

    Justwater: My tank pressure is whatever my casing pressure is at. So when my pump shuts off at 40...

    I wouldn't call it a short cycle. It takes about 32 seconds for it to get back up to pressure then it shuts off. It stays off until the pressure gets low enough. I would call it normal water usage....
  3. Well the water regulator is used to try and...

    Well the water regulator is used to try and maintain a lower pressure going down the casing then we had before. So yea I guess the ultimate goal is to not flip the leathers or distort them in any...
  4. Before you edited your post you said it looked...

    Before you edited your post you said it looked "bass-akwards" The ONLY difference is the water regulator, nothing else changed. When we had 50-55 psi going down the casing it only worked for 1 day...
  5. Final FINAL installation pictures of cross, control valve, pressure tank, and pump!

    Well a couple weeks ago I put my pictures up here of my installation. Well since that time we decided to get a water regulator to regulate the amount of pressure going down my casing. Last week we...

    Pump is in my basement well is outside about 10 feet to the west.

    So whatever the pump is pushing out that bottom port which is going to my casing, that's just what its going to be? So 50psi could...

    Understandable. But what about the 50 psi going down my casing? Is that ok? is that too much? what is it suppose to be? That part is what i dont understand I guess.

    Thats kind of a trick to do. We...

    Hooked everything back up and with the help of my buddy got water to move thank god. BUT were not understanding the whole control valve thing. In the pump installation book it says that I need to...

    Yea the whole reason I am doing this is because I cant afford a new well. I had a good friend help during the initial pull but now with all of your help I'm kind of winging it so to speak. So I'm...

    Where my casing starts, 6 feet below the ground is 2.5" I had to get a bell adapter that goes from 2.5" to 2" to adapt to the new pitless adapter. Then everything from the pitless to the basement is...

    Yea I guess if you say it that way. Seems like everyone has their own verbiage for it.

    Theres not a T in the Jet drive line. Theres a T on top of my casing.

    I wouldve loved to have been down there to take pictures of this event but I dont fit down my 2 1/2" casing. :D

    Justwater, thanks for the correction on my diagram. I worked on it last night for a bit. I still have to hook the tank to the control valve and get a longer line for my pressure switch.

    Here is a...

    OK guys what do you think of this? This is how I see it in my head. Please pick it apart if it is wrong. The text in the pic says main water to middle hole on front of pump. And by the arrow it says...

    When I bought the house it had 70' feet of pipe in the ground with a jet and leathers at the bottom. In the basement was a shallow well wayne pump. Maybe my water level is between 20-30 feet I dont...

    Thats what I thought. Apparently it worked that way for years. maybe the barometric pressure is lower or higher here...

    OK I think I can picture it in my head now. Thanks for all your help. Sorry...

    Heres the history in a nut shell. Lost prime on old system 4 months after I bought the house. All it had on for a pump was a shallow well wayne pump. After months of research I finally found out what...
  19. The jet assembly, because it is a deep well pump,...

    The jet assembly, because it is a deep well pump, is 70 feet down my casing by the foot valve. Any other suggestions?
  20. How do I hook up a Goulds 3/4 hp deep well jet pump with cross and control valve?

    So I have a J7 3/4 hp Goulds pump. They also sold me the control valve and the cross piece. We had guessed at this with our first shot and think we had too much pressure going down my casing...

    I have 3/4 horse pump so my pressure was pretty much spot on. We even lowered it at first. I dont get what you mean by cutting the pipe off. We havnt pulled the pipe up yet because I am lazy but...

    Well the old ones are kind of cupped so the new ones slipped over them one direction but very to get off the other way. Then we took a screw driver and widened them out. The same thing that hold the...

    So we installed the leathers on the jet with the foot valve and sent everything down the pipe. Hooked up my new pump and primed had some dirt and sand at first but it was working. Ran it for a couple...

    Thanks again. I have the exact jet that you have in that picture. I just ordered leathers from http://www.deanbennett.com/cylinder_cups.htm They say they are for windmills, hopefully they work. I...

    Thanks for responding. Well that's good news I guess. As for the old stuff that came out let's just say the scrap man made a run to the dump. The only thing I kept was the pit less adapter... when I...
