I appreciate y'all and even though I've learned a lot, we all could use some help now and then. Before I pull mine and start spending time and money, I wanted to get some feedback. This may be long, but I like to be thorough with all the details. The short version is - my pressure is also stuck at 20 psi. There are other threads like that, ya know. I found this out this weekend after numerous complaints from my wife. I also found the source for my sky high electric bill which I'll explain later. Anyway, I replaced the pressure switch, cleaned out ant debris in the 1/4" nipple, and made sure the pressure tank bladder was 38 psi for the 40/60 switch. After all that, no change, still at 20 psi. I shut the breaker off because this discovery means my pump has been running 24/7, possibly since December. I made sure no one touched a thing and later rechecked the pressure, and it had dropped to less than 10psi. I think that's as low as this gauge will go so it may have been 5 or zero. So, before I left it alone, I turned the pump back on and checked the resistance on the motor. It was about 4.8 ohms. Here's what I think, but if someone can make me wrong AND save me a bunch of time and money, I will be eternally grateful. LOL My pump MAY be wore out. BUT the ohm reading seemed pretty normal to me, so I'm hoping it's still good although it is 25 or 30 years old. The leak down has me thinking another way, that there is a crack or hole in the 1 inch pipe coming up from it or the foot valve. *For the last 3 months I've been trying to track down a huge spike in my electric bill. We had some "houseguests" for 2 of those months, my wife's granddaughter and boyfriend, so with a 30 day lag on the usage, it snuck up on me. I found my water heater timer had burned out, took it out completely. I also replaced the water heater thermostats because the bill didn't budge. I also found a slightly burned wire in my breaker box leading to their bedroom. They had used an electric heater in there b because they were too lazy to help me keep the wood stove burning. My wife was caring for my mother and I was running our household by myself for 2 months. I FINALLY tracked down what was using 2 or 3 times what this house ever used for the last 30 years. The well pump has been running constantly. Now, I checked with some pump websites and they said constant on/off cycling is more harmful than steady low pressure running, so I'm hoping that ohm reading means what I think it does. Can y'all tell me something that I missed, or offer better advice than to pull this sucker out 300 ft and start looking for a pipe problem? Thanks in advance.
