|In response to Re: Looseing prime in well|
You have a faulty gasket somewhere on the pump which is allowing air to enter, which in turn allows the water in the pump and intake line to return to the source (ie lake). When you go to prime it again, you are filling the entire intake line (hence the amount of water it takes).
The fact that it takes a while to do this points to the probability that the leak is a small one (pinhole). Is the pump a piston or jet? In either case, I would:
A: replace the gaskets
