Ok, here is the deal I bought some land that had a reservoir and well pump already on it. Ever since we put our house here and started using the well we have had nothing but issues. The primary problem is that the 3/4 hp pump keeps ejecting itself off the houses feed pipe. The first time I went down and looked at it, it had one clamp on it so I put on two and it worked for a month or so but not it is back to its old ways. I have changed the flexible piping with hard pvc hoping that would work better and it did for a month or so before blowing it off again. This time however when I go down there the pump is running but when I turn off power to hook it back into the pipe it wont come on for a longgggg time before blowing it off the pipe again.
How can one fix the problem of the pump blowing off the pipe I am now up to three clamps with no luck. Also is the pump the wrong type the reservoir is only 600 gallons and the pump pretty much touches the bottom of it but it has to push water about 300 ft mostly uphill. And why does it take so long to come back on is there a fail-safe that is causing this.
Sorry to be so full of questions but I am getting a bit tired of having to screw with my well.
