    Speedbump - duly noted on the supplements! I've been drinking bottled water for 2 weeks anyway, and my fridge has a filter for drinking water and ice.

    Hi Gary - I'm full of questions, but you're full of answers too, so if you don't mind I'd like to re-phrase my previous post:

    Thanks Gary - what exactly should the water conservation procedures be? I can stay out of the house for days at a time if necessary, and without any hardship. So if using NO water for a while is...

    Update - after running the faucet for about 15 minutes (3 faucets for about 10 minutes then just one for another 5), the pressure started dipping under 40. It then eventually jumped around a bit...

    Thanks Speedbump - just wondering, however, if opening three faucets is eventually going to drain the well to the point that the pump is no longer submerged (or barely submerged)? As I noted, the...

    Hi Gary - I was having a problem of this sort before the pump was replaced. It was a jet pump and not producing proper pressure, i.e. - it would cut off at 50 psi, but then immediately jump back down...

    Hi all - I was on this forum last week prior to getting a new well pump and pressure tank and got quite a bit of good input (thanks again BobNH, Speedbump, et al). The new pump install went well...

    Thanks Bob. I'm actually going to try to see if there might also be sediment buildup at the gauges. I already had sediment cleaned out near the switch.

    If I were going to do this, would I simply...

    Hi Bob NH - I actually had the pump checked for restrictions between the pump and the switch and there was sediment buildup that has now been removed. The problem is still there, of course, but I...

    Hi Bob,

    When the pump starts running, it runs for about 5-7 minutes before switching off (with no water running). It's not always the exact amount of time, but that's a good estimate, and it's...

    Hi Bob - and thanks again. Yes, the pump definitely works. I'm certain of that because I've still got water in my house and I can watch it start and run until it gets to the pre-set pressure and then...

    Thanks again!

    Bob NH - thanks again for your reply. I'll make sure the guys that are doing the work do just that, i.e. - pump the well with a work pump until the water is demonstrably clear.

    Again, thanks for...

    Unfortunately, there are some details of the well that I'm not familiar with - I don't know the well depth or whether it's drilled or dug. I do know that my jet pump is a deep well pump (2 wires) and...

    Constant Pressure or Standard Submersible?

    Hello all - this is my first post here, as I've never had a great deal of interest in wells, pumps, etc. But now I've got "well issues", so it's my new favorite topic!
