I have a new well-3 weeks now. Have had pressure issues and they had to blow it out twice. Now when I run a garden hose-25 ft- I notice the pressure gauge drops to 40 , clicks then continues to drop. They tell me it's the length of the hose. If I try to run 2 hoses which they told me to do to flush it ( water was brown) I can't. Is this normal? It is a 1 hp pump.
As soon as the pressure switch clicks "ON" and the pump starts, the pressure gauge should start to rise unless you are pumping a lot of water (more than 1 hose connected). Is this a submersible pump down in the well or a jet type pump mounted in the home. How deep is the well and at what depth did they hit the water table ? The water may turn brown until the dirt dirt is removed from the well which in my experience is about 1 or 2 days. You said that they had to "blow it out twice". What does that mean. Lastly, after they drilled the well, did they use a bailer to tell the capacity of the well they just dug and how much capacity does this well have. They should have these answers.
