How do you tell if your water tank is water logged and what are the symptoms of the water well pump if this occurs?
if your water tank is water logged the pump will kick on almost immediatly when the water tap is opened, and will kick off shortly after it is closed. Water cannot be compressed. The air inside the tank allows the pump to "catch up" and shut off while the water is in use, and allows for a steady flow of water at similar pressures.

If your having problems and suspect bad gas an old an easy test is to put a liter of Methyl hydrate in the tank before you fill up next time. If water is the problem the meth will mix with the H2O and burn just fine.If that doesn't solve the issue then it isn't gas problem.
Answer . Usually there will be a repeating chirping noise during engine running, also your tempurture gauge reads hot .. Answer . \nwith me, i was leaking antifreeze/coolant, but not all the time
Answer . \nIf the engine is overheating and you have checked all other causes of overheating. Start the engine cold and immediately remove the radiator cap. Look to see if you have flow. If not, the pump is more than likely bad. If the pump is leaking, making any noises, or the shaft can be moved… from side to side, the pump is bad. (MORE)
An Automotive Water Pump That Is Bad Will Leak Out The Shaft Where The Pulley Goes. Or The Shaft Will Break Off. Otherwise You Have A Different Problem. \n. \n Answer \n. \nYour car will overheat or not even start. You will smell antifreeze and or notice you have to put in alot of fluids. You… will see leakage under the pump or around inside of engine compartment. Buy a new one that has a lifetime guarantee and you will rest easier. (MORE)
It will squeal if the bearing goes out-the most typical failure or lock up, throwing the belt or leak-from the front area of the pump.
The water will settle to the bottom of the tank. The fuel pump is located on the bottom of the tank which means it will be picked up first and sent to the injectors. Water will not burn so the car will not start or will but run rough and die. You can by a gas drier or pay less and go to the drugstor…e and buy some alcohol. (MORE)
Answer . Most waterpumps have a weep hole on the housing that will start to seep coolant when the bearing/seal are starting to go bad. That is the time to replace the waterpump. If you are having trouble with overheating change the thermostat with a factory set (temperature) rating. good luck
You measure the distance from the surface that mounts to the block to the hub where the pulley mounts. Short=5 5/8" Long=7"
Want to try de-waterlogging yourself? Here's how to do it right! . Turn off the power to the pump at the switch or breaker. Also if there is a valve between the pump and the tank, turn it off. If this valve is broken or leaking, now is an excellent time to change it; if the pressure gauge needs rep…lacing, do that also, after step 2! . Open a faucet close to the tank, preferably one that is as low to the ground as possible to facilitate draining. . When the water slows to a trickle, find a way to introduce air into the tank. This may be done by taking out a fitting or plug in the side of the tank, preferably close to the center of the tank, or using a small air compressor to put air into a tire valve-style fitting on the side or bottom of the tank. Either way, the idea is to get most of the water out of the tank, and replace it with air. If your pump motor is in the well, you can empty the tank of water completely without problems. If you have a jet pump, where the motor is visible next to the wellhead, you should leave about 1/2 of the water in the tank, in order to keep some water for priming the pump. In fact, it is a good idea to fill several buckets with water before you turn the pump off, just in case! NOTE: Do not pressurize the tank with air instead of draining it - you can put too much air into the system, and cause some rather interesting problems and no end of frustration for yourself!! . When you have sufficient air in the tank, turn off the air and faucet, and turn the pump back on. Open the valve between the pump and tank just enough to keep the pump running, but do not let the pressure drop below 20 lbs. until the tank is full. . If you can't get it running right, call us (or your nearest pump professional)!! We'll gladly help you over the phone if possible, or give you a hand in person, if you are in the local area Answer You didn't say if this is a galvanized tank or a bladder tank. There is a large difference between the two. Is your tank painted with a name on it? If so what name and model # if possible? (MORE)
OK,I assume that your pump needs to be removed from the well and the pump and water line is full of water and heavy.I had the same problem and sorry to say there is no easy way.What you need to do is get a good grip on the water line leading into the well.You may have a nylon rope attached to the pu…mp itself,dont pull on this it may break.Get a few of your stronger friends to pull up on the water line,pull together it will be heavy,until the pump is above the water level in the well.This will allow the water in the pump and the water line to drain out.Then it should come out with little effort.

There are two types of jet pumps. Deep well jet and shallow well jet. The deep well has it's jet (ejector) in the well. The jets come in two different configurations. Two pipe and single pipe. The two pipe uses two pipes lowered into the well to the existing water level with the jet on the end. The …single pipe jet is hung in the well with only one pipe. The jet has two leathers to seal it to the casing making the casing the second pipe. The shallow well jet pump has it's jet on or in the pump. These pumps can only lift water 25 feet. Once primed, the jet pump will force water down the pressure pipe into the jet, where it will be sent through a nozzle (of differing sizes depending on pump and water level) and into a Venturi tube (also differing in sizes) which creates a vacuum that will send more water up to be captured in the storage tank.

If you are coming from a city or county water main you do not need a water tank or pump system as the main should already be pressurized.
It is important to know the symptoms of when a car part goes bad.The symptoms of a bad auto water pump are overheating, weeping, andgrinding gears.
Water pumps fail due to a bad bearing and/or shaft seal. Look at the bottom of the pump. There is a drain hole in the casting below the shaft. If the seal is bad then coolant will be leaking out of this hole.
The car will act like it is out of gas, sputter and eventually die, if there is enough water in the tank. If there is only a little bit, it will ususally sputter just a little before it evaporates the water. Still, no matter what happens with the water, you will need to replace the fuel filter, whic…h is how the water got in there in the first place. (MORE)
easiest way to tell if water pump is working is to run engine until at running temp. then carefully remove radiator cap. with someone slightly reving engine, look into radiator. if the pump and thermostat are working correctly, you will see the coolant moving(circulating) in the radiator
Replace the tank! I know it costs money. Your health will improve instead of drinking and bathing and cooking with rust and all the other stuff that results from it.
It's because the pressure underground pushes the water up and finally it reaches the surface and bursts out.
Most water pumps have a (weep) hole just under where the pulley go's into the pump body. . ok you fan blade is bolted to the front of your pump. looking down if you see a trinkel of water or a water stain on the front of it under the shaft you can bet your pump is gone.
besides making a sqeeling noise , or leaking from the weep hole , you can wait. until the thermostat is open ( top radiator hose will be HOT ) and squeeze the top. radiator hose , when you stop squeezing the hose if there is no surge of coolant. flowing through the hose then your water pump is no…t actually circulating your. coolant and has a bad impeller inside the water pump (MORE)

More to the point is finding how the air is getting into the system.

Depends on the static head and the GPM ( fixture demand) and friction losses from piping and fittings and the required pressure for the fixture
It depends on the water, and the contaminants therein. In some cases you may not be able to "purify" the water, and in some cases you may be able to "shock-treat" the water with sodium hypochlorite.. It would be best to consult with your local health department for assistance.
your car will over heat and it will drain out the antifreeze (in your radiator). The water pump will drain fluid from the small hole in the water pump (hard to see) but if u look under and near the water pump you would see fluid. The water pump is normally found in the center of the serpentine belt …on one of the pullies. Normally the cars serpentine belt will squeak from the antifreeze on the belt. if you are replacing the water pump you would need a water pump...a gasket for water pump and a new serpentine belt (dont buy a Napa belt) (MORE)
A deep well water pump is installed by mounting it in a weatherresistant housing next to the well and running power to it. Thehoses can then attached to either side of the pump and the pumptested for efficiency.
That is far too complicated to explain in this forum. Well techs spend 2-3 weeks learning this. That is far too complicated to explain in this forum. Well techs spend 2-3 weeks learning this.
Well water can be OK for some fish but it can also be deadly. It is always best to check well water out with a complete water testing kit or take a sample to a pet shop to be fully tested properly. Once you know its make up (parameters) you can find out what species of fish it may suit.
If the pump is blowing breakes, there is probably a short in the pump. The well could also be ceased. If there is very little water being pumped, the well could be dry or the pump might be "shot" http://www.irrigationsolutions.com
There are a number of problems that might cause a well not to produce water.. There could be some kind of electrical problem and the pump might not be powered up. Or the motor for the pump may have failed. The pump may have lost its prime and cannot pump water (depending on the type of pump), and t…he water table might have become lower and the pump is now above it and dry.. Think about how the pump worked before, and how it works now, and then compare the two "observations" to see if there are any differences. Does the pump sound like it comes on? Open a tap and, while listening at the tap, have someone turn on the pump. Troubleshoot this and return with a more specific question if you can. (MORE)
It comes out of an auqafer in the ground and then gets filtered, then it comes to is in the stores..........
It has lost it's prime, the impeller is bad or the pressure switch is bad. If you have water at normal pressure, it is probably the pressure switch.
The well water tank gets pressure in only 2 ways - 1 -from residual air pressure in the tank ( this is normal and should be 2 psi lower than 'cut on' pressure.) - 2. A tank that has very low, or no residual pressure will only gain pressure when the pump is operating. This pressure will quickly dissi…pate when any faucet is used. There are basically 2 types of well tank - the older 'galvanised' tank and the more modern 'bladder' tank. - Both have their problems. -In times of power loss, the air in a galvanised tank can be released if the faucets are used continually without the pump running. This air can be re-charged using a simple compressor. -In a bladder tank, the bladder actually holds the water and air pressure surrounds it, held by the steel shell. The bladder can eventually develop pin holes and lose the water into the air section. When this happens a new bladder is needed. Low water pressure is often caused by these problems in well tanks. It's possible that pump problems can eventually cause low pressure, especially in a jet-pump that has air leaks. -The other type of pump, a submersible (down the well) usually works or simply doesn't work. These pump problems can only be checked by a knowledgable person with a multimeter. (MORE)
I've never heard of that. Most tanks are built to withstand at least 150 psi and most domestic pumps will not reach that limit.
Depends what size house and how many residents. - An average house with 4 residents can get by very well with a 35 gallon pressure tank.
If properly set up with a suitable pump and bladder tank it costs very little for domestic use. No way to quote an exact figure.
When a water pump is bad it will leak. There is a hole in the pump were water will leak out of.

No but you will need a filter and a air pump to circulate and oxygenate the tank. Gravel is optional but I prefer not to use it because it traps the feces and access food. You will also need a syphon, and a scrubber to clean the tank. You should clean the tank about once every few weeks or when it g…ets cloudy. When you clean your tank you will probably notice that the water is still a little cloudy but it's ok because you won't be able to get the tank completely clean. (MORE)
Pumps CAN suck water, but there is a limit to the height of the column of water they can draw up from the bottom of a well. This limit is based on the fact that water will boil at room temperature if you reduce the air pressure. In other words, the greater the height that pump has to draw water, th…e more likely it is to cavitate. The simple way around this is to locate the pump at the bottom of the well. A good example is a Condensate Extraction Pump in a Power Station. It has a long vertical shaft, and pumps the condensate from several metres below the Hotwell underneath the Condenser. Because the Condenser operates at a vacuum, the long shaft improves the Net Positive Suction Head (NPSH) of the Pump. For pumps located above the water level, a priming procedure is required to charge the pipe between the suction point and the pump. Such pumps are normally fitted with a foot valve to prevent the leg draining and thus losing prime. (MORE)
You don't have to, but : they're stable at the bottom. the flow of water is less likely to be interrupted (by low water) it (the pump) as to supply a constant pressure head.
It depends on how many people live in the home, and if it's only for the home or irrigation as well. -Generally a home of 4 people would need a 35 -50 gallon pressure tank.

A 35 - 40 gallon bladder tank ( which is common in a regular house ) weighs approximately 50 pounds.
Result of water logging After water logging roots cannot breath , amount of salt increases in soil and result is that the plant dies.
If the engine is warmed up, the thermostat has opened and coolant is circulating, the pump is pumping.
Open the drain plug at base or the nearest faucet and connect a small compressor to the air nipple on top.
A lot of times it is easier than you would suspect, turn off the pump, drain about 1/2 of the tank, close the valve, turn on the pump. It may be as easy as that (depends on the pump and tank)

A deep well submersible pump can be simply placed into a shallow well and it will work. These pumps actually pump water directly and do not rely on suction. Simply cut your tube to desired length and place the deep pump in the shallow well. -NOTE- this does NOT work the other way - a shallow or jet …pump is just that and can never work in a deep well.
