    Default Got alot of Water but pump will not build pressure

    Put in a new point and replaced the old pump. Got everything hooked up and the pump pumps alot of water but will not build pressure and shut off. I even returned the pump and got another one thinking I had a defective pump. I hooked up a 10' feet piece of 1/2" pvc to the outlet of the pump water will shoot out about 15 feet! but the pressure will not go above 30-35lbs of pressure. I'm at a loss. I put in a few of these systems in the past and had no problems. Everything is new. Pump, check valve, and point. Please help!!
