    No. Ones in the front and the others in the back. The lines are 25 years old and it was really cold a few weeks ago. I looked closely at the floor and I can only think that if the one instance of...

    Sorry Speedbump. Yes its a submersible 4" 1/2 HP Goulds. I don't think anything is wrong with the settings. I reviewed the FAQ and am familiar with the characteristics of the pressure tank and...

    Finally found time to check the pressure. Seems it is at around 45 lbs using a $20 tire gauge. How it managed to gain pressure from the factory and the original check at install is beyond me, yet the...
