    We still don't know what motor you pulled out or which one you put back in. That's important.
    If they were the same motors, then no problem.

    In my humble opinion, don't waste your money on a so called whole house filter. If you have
    ever seen a standard water softener. That is a whole house filter. Those ten inch filters are a
    joke.

    Your 51.4 mg/l translates to 3 grains hard. This is practically soft water already. I wouldn't
    have a softener if my water was that soft. It may be getting the iron out, but you should have
    been sold ...

    87%? Cmon man everybody knows 64% of statistics are made up on the spot!Nope, I did the
    research and I did the math. Exactly 87%... give or take 50%.

    If the check valve is gone in the pump, the pump would cycle on and offNot necessarily. I have
    seen them where the nut that only allows them to open so far to break off allowing the poppett
    to go furt...

    No problem, I just turned my monitor upside down.:)Forget the jet pump idea, it's a bad one. I
    don't think there is anything wrong with the pump itself. If you knew where the well was and
    could cut th...

    If I understand correctly, a check valve malfunction would require replacement of the pump too,
    right? I will have to see if I can hold down the plate (not sure I understand how to until I
    see it). Wh...

    If your pump goes up to 60 then drops back to 50 upon shutoff of the pump, the air in the
    bladder tank is probably set low. Turn off the pump, drain the pressure off and check the air
    pressure in the ...

    Unless you have a monster of a tank, 13 minutes is outrageous. One minute is more like it.Hold
    the plate under the springs of the pressure switch down and see if it will make 60 or 70 psi.
    If it will,...
