    Question Above Ground bladder style pump won't turn off and no water pressure

    Hello I have been racking my brain and can't come up with a solution to this problem. Ok I got up the morning and there was no water. I checked the fuses first to see if that was my problem since I had to change them before. (Not the problem) I went outside and noticed that the pump wasn't sounding right. Only a hum. So I took the pump motor off and took it to be rebuilt. Ok problem fixed right...WRONG!!
    Now the pump won't turn off. When I first hooked it back up it cycled 30 seconds then off then on 30 seconds then off then on and won't turn off. I have a 1/2 hp jet style pump with a tank and bladder system. only whoever put this thing in didn't install a pressure gauge so I have no clue at what the pressure is. With the pump running I have a small trickle of water comming into my house but nothing else. The pressure plate box(gray box) was replaced less than a month ago. I removed the small white line from pressure plate to the top of the pump and cleaned that thinking it was clogged but no. I really don't know what else to do. Please give me another Idea. I have no money to put into this.

    Ok I was just reading the stickers on the side of the tank and it says it is a Hydro Pneumatic tank system. Does that make any difference?
