I have an old wards 1/2hp jet pump (shallow, I believe). I have a newer goulds tank. My pump will run and not produce any water. I pulled prime cap off and water flows out of it. Put prime cap back on (start pump) and water will start pumping. This has happened twice in the last week. The first this time this happened I did have some sediment in my water. Any ideas?

By the way. GREAT SITE!
