Yuor hopeless...must be the way you treat your customers based on that fancy pretty yellow trailer you live in...my shed is half the size of that thing.....later..aint comin back here to stupidsville.....bye ...
In case anyone wants to answer his question instead of insult him, He needs a FRANKLIN PUMPTEK or at the very least a 15$ low pressure cut out switch for the pressure switch.
The pumptek will turn back on when water comes back, the switch means he must manually reset it. He wanted to SAVE the pump, not watch a light 24-7.
Where should the hillbilly aim his drone missile at?

I would rather have my home wired by jwelectric then by a homeowner.
Ballvalve, I added the link to the pumptek
As long as water comes out of the pipe at the end, I'm good. I quit doing electrical when I was getting shocked installing a bath fan. I think that one had some mixed up wires too.
So JW told you how it is.
JW has helped me several times, advised me well. Once he was brusque with me because we disagree about the use of a certain testing tool. I tried not to wet myself over the rebuke.
Oh, and in future, use more exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That way we will know you mean it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I donít think anyone has insulted him. He made the comment that he wired his home so one would think that he had enough knowledge to install an indicator lamp.
What he purposed was to say the least illegal as well as dangerous. This would leave a seasoned veteran in the electrical trade to wonder how his installation was made
Then I made the comment how this lamp would affect the depth of the water in the well. The lamp would not stop the pump from running if there was no water and no one was monitoring the lamp.
I donít think any word was insulting but someone sure did as my inbox is about full. If I did insult my apology as it was not meant to be an insult but simply facts.
Then we have the hero of the day come with some good advice which I thank you for. Wish I knew more about plumbing. The jest of my knowledge is; cold on the left, hot on the right, waste goes downhill, Friday is pay day, and the boss is a son of a fine fellow.
ONE big error repeated a few times above: NEVER call a plumber about a pump. Thats like calling the electrician to design and build trusses. One must call a WELL DRILLER or dedicated well pump serviceman. At least in Ca. they get a seperate license category. A good pump man has [needs] the knowledge of about 4 specialty licenses.
I might add that the pumptek only works on submersible pumps. Have to go with overheat devices or the low pressure cut out if its a jet type pump.Then we have the hero of the day come with some good advice which I thank you for. Wish I knew more about plumbing.

Plumbers should be reserved to get those last few sentences working for you. Keep him out of your pumphouse!
