    Your pump is a Water Ace probably from Lowes or Home Depot. Good pump, cheap motor. Water Ace
    is made by Myers who is owned by Pentair.Nice looking plumbing job. You should put your check
    valve just b...

    There are two kinds of Potassium feeders that I'm aware of. Some people will trick up the cam
    shaft on an autotrol head so it takes a couple of ounces each backwash. The other feeder is
    just that... a...

    Check in later and let us know how it's working.

    Post a picture of the pump. A jet pump or a centrifical pump will only lift water vertically 25
    ft from itself. Forget about air forget about the 10 ft to water it will only lift 25 ft from
    itself ver...

    You can put 100 feet of pipe down, the only thing you gain is a little friction loss. A shallow
    well jet pump will lift water 25' from it's intake. The amount of pipe beyond that point is no
    problem. ...

    The tool I would use is a taper tap. Tapered male threaded hardened steel that goes from 1/4"
    to 1-1/4". On the end of a set of jars which is a too that makes hammering up and down
    possible. My old ho...

    I was in Michigan and most wells there were screened, same for Wisconsin. If it's a driven well
    like you say, you can either pull it out and replace the screen or try to find some Nu-Well
    tablets and ...

    That casing looks like 3" PVC to me. The fact that two inch goes inside it tells you it's not a
    two inch well. That pipe inside could be steel and could possibly be retrieved with a taper tap
    and a se...

    I don't know where you are, but if you are in an area where wells have a screen, your's may be
    getting plugged. I used to change up to 4 screens a day back in the 60's - 70's.

  • Posted in thread: Pressure doesnt reach cut in pressure, pump always on? on 06-04-2017 at 01:40 PM
    No. The only thing that might be happening up by the tank would be the pressure switch's line
    being totally plugged up; preventing pressure from getting to the switch telling it to shut the
    pump off. ...
