Ok, today my mom bought one of those blow up pools and felt the need to
blow it up. She filled it halfway up and we all took showers an the
regular things. After filling the pool, the well went low. you can
usually tell this because the water turns brown (I assume from sediment
from the bottom of the well)
This is usually no problem, if left alone for a few hours is back and
We havent had much rain lately, I guess its catching up.
I was wathcing TV and heard a bang and a scarping. I thought it was a
accident out front but it was the house going from the well pump into
the "tank" It blew off of the pump and filled half the basement with
water. As I went down there I found the pump was abnormally hot. Im
guessing its been "pumping" air.
I havent the slightest idea what happened here. I guess it was caused
by not having any water. My question is what do I need to do to fix it?
I pulled the fuse on the pump because it was still running after it
blew off the hose.
Also, should I check the pressure in the tank, Would that cause any of
How would I prime the pump?
I dont know what to do at this point.
Sorry for the bad grammer, spelling and whatever else. Its 12:08 AM,
ive been up for 20 hours now, im tired, have no water.
