Thread: well pipe shaking

  1. #1

    Default well pipe shaking

    When my pressure switch on my shallow well kicks off it shakes the pipe, and I am worried that it will eventually break my pvc piping. Any suggestions? Thanks

    If your sure there are no other check valves, then it's the one in the pump. It should shut off quietly and smoothly. With no shakes, rattles or rolls. Next time you buy a pump, try a Flotec. You'll like it even better.
