Exclamation

Hi i have a well problem.
I am in a new house and it has a new well. Just within the last 2 weeks the breaker on the well pump keeps kicking out,
So i don't have water.

In the last few time reseting it just kicks it back out again, so i can't turn it on at all.

Is this an electrict side or a water side problem, baring in mind that the water comes out till it clicks and the tank has pressure.

And how might i remedy this situation soon.

thanks,
sincerely

Cool

Cut off the breaker to the pump, and check the pressure switch and pump for loose connections. (Be careful of capacitors, if you take the pump motor cover off to check the wiring there. Even with the power off, capacitors can zap you.)
That may be all that it is.
Good luck!

Hi, House and water system is two weeks old? Call the builder or people who installed the pump to repair it.
Good Luck Woodbutcher
