Last year we had a 150' drilled well with submersible pump installed for a new house. The house is nearing completion and we are trying to get the well online. From the well there is a check valve, a 40/60 pressure switch, a 35-gal Flex-Lite pressure tank, followed by a hose bibb with pressure gauge. I've checked the pre-charge pressure on the tank and it reads 38-psi. When the power to the well is on and all faucets are closed, the pressure gauge reads 40-psi. When a faucet is opened, the pressure gauge almost immediately drops to 0-psi. Water will flow fairly steady from a hose connected just after the pressure tank for about 60-secs and then stop for 30-40-secs, then flow at more of a slow dribble for 60-secs, and repeat. I've double checked wiring several times and ensured the pressure switch is receiving proper voltage. I've also and disconnected and rebuilt all the interior set up to check for clogs, etc. All equipment is brand new, though the well pump did sit unused in the well for the past year. Any ideas what my problem could be? Thanks for any help.
