I found water was not coming in from my well. The well is at 160 feet,
and the pump was replaced less than 3 years ago with a 3/4 HP Webtrol
After doing some investigation, I found 240 volts is reaching the two
wires at the well head going down to the well. A current meter shows
no current is being drawn, and a resistance check says the two wires
The two wires go into the top plate held by 4 bolts to a casing
extending about a foot out of the ground. The plate is about 6-8
inches in diameter. A PVC water pipe also goes thru the center of this
I have not removed the plate, to see if there are any other
connections in the two wires that might be bad. Do the two wires
usually run straight from the a/c feed to the pum or are there other
connections that I might examine?
I have called a well company. They will come Monday, but I would like
to fix it myself if it can be fixed without pulling the pump.
