What could be the problem with my shallow jet well pump? I was doing laundry and got an error code that there was a problem with the water source, checked the faucet and no water, I thought we ran out of water since we are in a moderate drought and our well is only 25 ft, occasionally we do have to haul in some water when we have a dry spell, but it has been a few years. Well I decided to check the breaker for the pump about 5 hours later and it was tripped, so I flipped it back on, walked outside and didnt hear the pump kick on and no water. My husband drives truck and is not home today and I cannot get the lid to the well house off by myself ( he built the house about 3 ft high with cinder blocks and has a lid over the top that he removes and climbs into the well house) so I cannot check the water level or even look at the pump. So do you think we ran out of water, the pump burned up from trying to pump when there was no water and tripped the breaker? Or the breaker tripped for an unknown reason and the pump lost pressure? Do they generally have a reset on the pressure switch or something that maybe needs reset? Could it be vapor locked? I'm not sure if the pump would try to run if it was vapor locked? Could the pressure just be low and the pumped turned itself off the prevent it from burning up? I'm sorry I dont know model of well pump, buts it's either 3/4 or 1HP, got it from lowes almost 7 years ago (I remember because when we came home the hospital from having our youngest the well pump had went out ugh) my husband will be home tomorrow, but my mind wont stop trying to figure out what's wrong and if we will need to get a new pump, or hopefully just haul in some water. Any ideas are appreciated.
