Posted in thread: Sand coming in from driven well on 05-22-2017 at 01:20 PM
In a perfect world, with no air leaks and a good check valve, the vacuum would stay in tact.
But that's highly unlikely especially with a driven well. The joints will undoubtedly leak over
time and al...

A little box about 3.5" X 2.5" square with wires in and out. It turns on and off the pump
according to the set pressures.

It's probably the filter. Or it could be that your tank isn't giving much of a drawdown either
because it's too small or because it's waterlogged and the pressure switch isn't seeing the

I don't see why pliers or channel locks wouldn't work.

I'm still baffled by using Teflon tape on a gasket-ed fitting. The guy slipped a rubber ring
into the barb fitting then tightened it with his fingers all but the last 1/2 turn. What is the

Yeah there's always a check valve in the pump itself. Of course it wouldn't make any difference
what the pump is doing if the drop pipe has holes in it.

The check valve is generally just before the tank but I have seen them in the drop pipe. Do you

Since you say it holds pressure I assume you mean with the pump off and the valve closed going
into the house that means that you have a check valve somewhere between the house and the
pump.You will l...

Adjusting the switch probably won't help. Sounds like you either have a hole in the droppipe
the pump hangs from or somehow you have nuked an impeller or two. If the motor is 230 volts and

I don't see where she missed anything. You said you wanted soft water. Filters do not soften
water. If you have sediment that you need to filter out, you should complain to your water
provider. If you...
