      I have a private well with a submersible pump. The water pressure in the house has dropped from maintaining a relatively constant pressure of about 60 psi to maintaining a pressure of about 30 psi with normal household water usage. The pressure in the system never seems to build up above 30 psi and it seems that the submerisble pump is running constantly. What possible causes should I check for and in what order?

      David Myer. I would remove pipes from the well & check the injector, they are only plastic.

      dave. You could also have a split poly pipe down your well from using rural pipe or the wrong class of pipe.
