Low water pressure from well pump
Asked Jan 4, 2008, 07:11 AM
I recently replaced the pressure switch because I heard the well pump running non-stop.
At this time the pump never seems to generate more than 38 PSI on the gauge. Also the pipe from the well seems to vibrate loudly. It seems as the pressure tank is light (no water in it?). The pressure gauge alsoi seems to fluctuate 2 or 3 PSI while the pump runs. The slow blow circutbreaker for the pump has tripped a few times now. Right now I run the pump for about 10 min and turn it off at the circutbreaker panel. When the pump is not running the system holds pressure.
Do I need to call a pro yet?
Do you think my pump has gone bad?
I fear that soon I will have no water.
