I recently posted about possibly having air in the lines, getting no response I went into the cellar and unhooked the pressure side of my pump; except for the T wit hthe priming plug and a shut off valve with a nipple on it.

Results: Low water flow. The pipe was not lways completely filled, only the lower half of the pipe filled with water then it surged and had the full 1" pipe of water flow, then it went back to half and so on. So its obvious where the air is coming from...

Also, when I undid my union and took my pump out, (I have my ball valve right before the union and before that there is a check valve) I could hear a hissing coming from the supply pipe! What is this? With 2 check valves on it and Im getting a hissing through both of them but no water through without pump on.

Question: Could and of this be caused by a bad ball valve or check valve? Or maybe a foot valve? I have a shallow driven well and never had problems before...

Or could this be a supply line problem? Perhave aperforated or pinched supply line? Reason I ask: Recently had a new spetic put in and they drove a big excavator over the yard and the driveway. I do not really now where the suply line runs, but maybe where they drove? Just a thought...

Anyone who canhale me, PLEASE DO! I am getting extremely frustrated with this!!!

To clarify:

my supply line comes in and there is a brass "thing" in the line, kinda looks like a "Y" with a cap on the bottom side)(check valve or something?) then a piece od pipe, then a brass "coupler" that I know is some sort of check valve... my dad called it a ball valve, but it has no handle to turn or anything so I dont know if thats right... maybe just check valve? Then pipe and a union then pipe and the pump.

Hopefully0 this helps to clarify more....
