|Comment||Bob,thank you for the quick response! It's obvious you know your trade. I talked with a 60 year plumber since I texted you that earned his journey mans card putting in wells,and installing and repairing well pumps. He came to the same conclusions that you did. He also told me that once the old steel well casings begin to rust inside that it is nearly impossible to keep rust flake out of the suction orifice. He told me the same thing as you did about emptying the bladder less tank first. I did this and was able to obtain 40 psi. A 1hp pump should give me more,so I'm sure there is blockage as you have stated. The older plumber said I was wasting my time,that I should pull it all and install a submersible pump system. Once again thanks! It's great there are people out there like you willing to share your knowledge with us less experienced folks. Respectfully Mark|

I am a Water Well Driller and Water Pump technician. I own a business in Riverview, Fl. We repair motors and pumps in shop and in the field. We repair and replace submersible and jet pumps, galvanized and bladder tanks, and their controls. Water filtration is another one of our specialties.
I started drilling and repairing wells and pumps with my dad in 1958 at the age of 13 years. I worked with him on weekends and in the summer when not in school. After graduating high school, I worked for my Dad until going into the Army in 1968. I spent three years in the Army then went back into the Well Drilling/Repair field.
