Well we pulled the pump up, and the motor is bound up, so off to sears we go again, as it is still under warranty. Question that I have is, do these pumps have a reputation for not doing so well in the WELL? And if so, What is a good reliable submersible pump. I can't want to be pulling pump at 30 below or in another 6 months. Thanks for yor help Speedbump. The reason that we have the 1 hp, pump is that we are going to use it to irrigate some pasture when we get the lines in.
