With the well sys on an up to pressure turn off the valves on the water main /turn off the power to the pump .there should be a pressure guage somewhere around the storage tank .if the press drops an keeps dropping you have a leak somewhere

ANS 2 - with the system ON and pump running as normal, uncap the well and listen carefully - if there's a leak down there you will almost always hear hissing or bubbling while the pump is running.

A break in the line from curb to house, or from well to house. in some cases pressure reducers have a screen in it. Best is to start at one end and check for leaks, and if possible check for water pressure.

What causes water polution?

Water Pollution can be caused in a variety of ways. Industrial waste, sewage, waste water, mining, and dumping are all ways that pollution can get into the water supply. Accidental oil leaks, sewer line leaks, and underground storage leaks can occur as well. Chemicals, pesticides, and burning fossil fuels can cause pollution to mix with the water, or mix with the vapors in the air causing acid rain. Global warming is also causing water pollution.


How do you remove air from well water line?

If everything is functioning as it should the pump should push all the air out of the system. If there is consistently air in the system it is probably seeping in on the suction side of your pump, which will shorten the life of your pump. Check your suction line for leaks.

What causes well water to stop running?

On well water, there is sometimes a reservoir that needs to refill. So if water stopped coming out of your tap, normally you just have to wait till it refills. IF YOUR PUMP IS RUNNING & NO WATER YOU COULD HAVE A LEAK IN LINE FROM WELL TO PUMP.THE PUMP SHOULD PUMP UP PRESSURE & THEN LEAK BACK DOWN IN PRESSURE. I HAD THE VALVE GO BAD AT THE END OF LINE IN WELL & INSTEAD OF PULLING LINE FROM WELL, I INSTALLED A VALVE AT PUMP THAT LEAVES WATER FLOW FROM THE WELL, BUT DOES NOT ALLOW WATER TO LEAK BACK TO WELL. A SIMPLE FIX. FIRST, DID YOU TRY PRIMING THE PUMP BY FILLING WATER PUMP THROUGH THE PLUG ON THE PUMP & 2ND. ARE YOU SURE THE WELL IS NOT DRY. IF YOU PRIME THE PUMP WITH WATER & IT PUMPS NOW THE WELL WATER IS OK,BUT IF IT LEAKS DOWN & LOSES THE PRIME, THE FIX ABOVE WILL REMEDY THE PROBLEM.


Coolant leaks from underneath the car after the coolant reservoir cap is removed?

Could be a few things, is it a small amount or a large amount? Check where it is coming from, when you remove the cap you are depressurizing it, I would check the hoses for small leaks that or the drain pin as well could be loose.


Hissing sound from pipes but no water from well water?

I would first check to ensure the pump is below the water level in the well. These pumps will pump air. If the pump (or foot valve) is below the water level, then I would check my pressure tank to make sure that it is not full of air.

What is the function of foot valve in a well?

A foot valve, in relation to a water well, is a check valve at he bottom of a well to keep the water from running back into the well from the pump when the pump is not running. If the check valve does not hold the water the pump will lose it's prime and will not pump water.

Is it necessary to replace the timing belt and water pump when installing new front seal on a 1999 Toyota Camry?

No, it is not. But the cost of labor is so high that is a good idea to do it as well. There are times when you need to do it though. Check how close you are to next timing belt change. See if water pump has any leaks. Check condition of the timing belt.


Can a leaky check valve on a well pump line cause low water pressure?

No. Low pressure is a function of the well tank. Your pressure tank must have an adequate air pressure to maintain water pressure. A leaky check valve is not good news however, and will cause your pump to run excessively. This valve should be replaced ASAP.


How do you dewinterize?

Well start by turning on the electricity, then turn on main water valves, turn on all sink, tub, toilet faucets and let water run until air is bled from system. Check system for leaks. Should be good to go after flushing toilets to remove anti-freeze from the bowls.

Never purchase a used RV without a test drive.
