Hi all!

I'm new here and need some help. My well pump was going bad (sounded like a Buick being shoved through a wood chipper when it would kick on) so I bought a new and installed it. But when I installed the new pump it wouldn't draw from the well. It is fully primed but it won't build any pressure beyond 6lbs. It is a deep well and I replaced my old Flint and Walling with a Myer HJ 75. When I showed the picture to the guys at the plumbing supply some of them said they weren't use to that set up so they didn't have much in the way of help. Anyhow I have a check valve that is at the end of the well pipe comming in the house and I think that in hooking up the new pump the valve went kaput? I've attached a picture of the set up. I unhooked the pipe that comes out from the pump to see how much water it was drawing and.....nada! I also think that maybe it could be the pressure valve on the pump or the well point? What do you guys think? What should try?

Is it a bad valve?
Is it a bad new pump? (how can I test to see if it's a bad pump?)
Did the well suck air back down to China?

I did a search on the forum but I'm not real savy on the terminology, so I couldn't find anything that was previously written, so if I am being anoying I apologize, I'm just in a tight spot with a woman and two little kids who want there water back.

Thank you in adavance,
