    How do I collect the info for my home's well?

    I am a complete novice when it comes to figuring out what I need for a pump. All I know is that my water pressure is exceedingly low and a plumber who has done work at my home says I need a larger/better well pump to get the job done. He doesn't seem to have the expertise, however, to size a pump and I want to make sure I don't waste my money and end up damaging the well or seeing no improvement. My well is called a "sand point" well, which I know means it is shallow. It is beneath the stoop of my home (I believe) and altough I have access to the current pump and pressure tank, I don't know how to obtain the measurements your sight recommends to properly size a well. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Before buying a brand new large pump from a Plumber who should be fixing your sink not your pump, check to see what brand and horsepower the old one is. Then post back.

    Your sand point could be plugged and if so, the biggest pump in town isn't going to draw any more water through it.

    Call a well driller or pump man if you are going to use a contractor.
