Well pump not shutting off
Asked Jun 5, 2007, 05:12 AM
Ok, we installed a new bladder holding tank, preset points and pressure switch along with all new pipe. The plumber did not put a new pressure gauge on the line though. He said he would come back and put a new gauge on the line which he did not have with him at the time. After the installation the tank filled fine, there was great water pressure to the house but the pump would come on about every 2 minutes, run for about 30 seconds then shut off and continued to do this. It was late (after dark) when this project was complete and the plumber left the property saying he'd be back. We cut the power to the pump last night so that it would not keep kicking on and off. When we turned it on this morning the pump came right on and we had water to the house immediately. But now the pump will not shut off unless we manually separate the points. Do you have any input for me?
