    Thanks for confirmation - wasn't sure if my approach to "zero in" on a good restart timer setting was realistic.

    Thanks - for the info. We're due for some rain, so will hold off running the test until next time I irrigate - There's over 300 gallons in the casing (above the pump) when the well is completely...

    Unfortunately I don't know what pump was installed. So, if I understand correctly, the current draw when deadheading, on this pump, is significantly different than when it runs dry - is this...

    I finally ran a few amperage measurements, and saw very little difference in the current draw for full flow rate, restricted flow and dead headed condition.

    I turned off the power to the well...

    If that's the case, I would need to repipe to provide a bypass around the flow restrictor. Thanks for the info.
    Probably still worth contacting SymCom and see if they think the unit would do the...

    Currently, we pump directly from the submersible into the 5000 gal tank without any intermediary storage/pressure tank. We haven't added an intermediary tank, nor have we throttled the output of the...

    I think I am understanding your points - just not clear in my writings...


    Got it. I understood you recommended to use a Dole valve. There was a point in my thinking last night, when I thought...

    A fresher mind does help. Thanks for the thorough explanation. Iím attempting to get a physical sense of things, rather than just remembering a set of numbers.

    I think I now have a reasonable...

    I may have a glimmer, but may have to wait til I have a fresher mind in the morning - So, would this be more accurate? Ignoring the case of running dry, the load goes to a minimum level at zero...
  10. Thanks for the quick response - One of the...

    Thanks for the quick response - One of the reasons I wanted to go into the WX 350 was so the "contrast" between normal pumping and running dry was as high as possible - If I pumped directly through...
  11. Using a Amtrol WX 350 to improve well efficiency

    We've been using our well for ~20 years, but haven't had the need to do much since installing - so, somewhat of a newbie...

    I'm looking for feedback on any errors in my thinking (shown below), or...
