    so far its been ok but it aint no hot rod. I will be needing something better for sure. Will
    the 1 hp be enough and how large a tank will be required. Your prices look good to me. When I

    I don't think you will be at all happy with a 1/2hp pump especially from Lowes.You are going to

    What kind of pump do you have now? Jet or Submersible? Do you know how much the pump you now

    gauge to s...

    When you say flowing; do you mean the well flows water without the use of a pump? Add tank: Do
    you have a storage tank now, or are they suggesting you add another larger atmospheric tank to
    contain a ...

    How did you test the voltage? Each wire to ground getting 115 volts; or both wires at the same
    time getting 230 volts?You actually changed out a pump by yourself that was 250' in the hole???
    You must ...

    The black film is a common result of flexible braided stainless steel hoses being used to
    connect the water heater. The material inside often disintegrates and a gross black film is the
    result. The "S...
