Water spurting out taps

I have just moved my 3/4 Hp shallow well pump and reconnected to a new sandpoint. I have 42PSI and it shuts off at 30. The tank is at 28PSI, The water is clear and cold and the pump does not loose its prime.

Problem is water spurts out of taps. I also hear water running in the pipes in the kitchen that I did not hear before. I have tried opening the tapes and shuting off when air is reduced. I can also hear a gurgling sound in the hot water tank. Problem still exist with running only cold water.

Can anyone tell me how to get air out of the lines or how to tell if it is coming from the pump or sand point.

Thanks in advance
John

How do you have 42 psi if the pump quits at 30 psi? Since you opened the system to move the well it might take a while to remove all the air from the system. It is either that or the new sand point is sucking air.

Thanks for your response.
The pump shuts off at 42 and turns on 30. If the sand point is suckiing air would the pump not loose its prime.
