    I left our well on for 12 hrs and now after 1 day there is still no water in it. I turned off the circuit for the pump today after reading about that. I am wondering if I burned up the pump.

    We are not able to afford a $20k well this year but want to have potable water as we work to improve our land. We are going to use our RV during these improvements so we can stay longer and want to have steady pressurized water. Our thinking is we have 2-ICB tanks connected to a 45psi 115v...

    I have been trying for years to get my well fired up because I could not figure out the voltage. The main problem is that the 25KW Generator walked away years ago and my Dad has since passed away and I have no idea what the voltage is on the pump. The Magnetic Starter/Control Box is still in...
