bought the house 6 yrs ago and had to replace pump, home depot flowtec shallow well. worked good for six years with medium pressure and lots of grit and sand in water.Now it will only make about 40 pounds and wont shut off. i was thinking plugged screen but from what i have read bout flowtech should i replace the pump before messing with any thing else. it will be hard if not immpossibe to pull pipe up becasue i dont know how and its in a tight spot in basement. it just now made 50 pounds in about 12 minutes and was getting hot so i touched pressure swith with screwdriver and it kicked off.the contacts look good if you can tell by how they look.thanks great forum
