Back in july I saw a step by step way to check for low or nopressure from a well, to check for leaks, and cant find it . We have a shallow well that has a water treatment system on it, the pump and tank are small and was fine last year but over the last 6 months or so has been getting worse now we have bairly any water from downstairs and pretty much nothing upstairs, forget washing cloths and taking a shower at the same time. Please refer me to that reply messege or tell me how to check from the pump to the house for leaks in the system.

If the pump runs and then stops that means that the upper limit of the pressure switch as been reach. So unless the pressure switch and failed so that it has suddenly changed to you still have the same pressure range.

It really helps in diagnosing well problems if you have pressure quage at the tank/pressure switch.

Also a utility spigot at that point. With either one of those you can quickly tell if you have water pressure.

If the pump runs and then stops assume that you have pressure and a blockage in the filters/water treatment equipment.
