Re: Water well not producing volume LONG!

The pump was short cycling the last time the sprinkler was on last year. This year won't even pick two heads up. They heads should pop at 25#. So if I got pressure volume most be the problem?. I did not check it for proper cycling, I added air because of that. I know that more air does not produce more volume, and it had only 28# in the bladder. Pressure setting is on @ 40# off at 60#. What I am going to do first, is blow the well out and hope to clear it that way. Second I will pick the pump off the bottom by 5 feet. Then if all this has failed to give me the volume I need.......NEW PUMP! OR new well?

I don"t know where you live at But here in Mercer county Pa. If you have that trouble with Low water flow and small sand You better be calling the driller that drilled it. Do you know how much water the well will make without over pumping it? Do you know the recovery rate? Is it a rock well or gravel well? Is there a flow reducer on the well? These are some of the things you need to know before you "Blow the well out" Or you could very well Blow the well out at least the bottom of it. We have wells here that are finish in sand and gravel That We stomp Stones and rock down on the bottom to keep them from "Blowing out" Pushing sand 20 or30 feet right up the hole and shutting off the water. Good luck.

Hello rusted nuts,

Thanks for the info. I need to check all of the well properties. It may be gravel well. My blowing will be done with a small volume as a quick test. Most people around the place have the same sand problem. Calling the installer will may be the way to go. Guido.
