My well-pump was running good, until I pulled on the hose to hard and pulled the upper PVC section completely off the pump, that contained the hose bib, 1” PVC pipe and the bladder. I replaced the upper section and PVC and used Teflon Tape for the connections. After priming, the pump pressure from the hose bib appears to only be about ¼ the pressure it was before this happened.
I disassembled the pump and motor and looked inside the pump, and the it looked good.
Next I rebuilt the upper section again, but this time with Galvanized Steel. It didn't help the pressure.
Next I replaced the 1 ¼ inch PVC piping and the check valve on the intake side of the pump. It still only pumps about ¼ of what it did before.
Help! Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance
Will it make pressure if you turn off the water faucet? If so, how much?
