IM JUST A GIRL!!!! with no money

by stra8up3 » Tue Jun 09, 2009 8:39 am

I'm on a well, ever since 1989. I had just had electrical problems with the entire house breaker box after fixing that. The next morning I woke up to hear a loud sound from the control panel on the well. I found a burnt connection so I replaced the whole plastic strip of connections. Then after plugging it all back in, I'm only able to at the beginning hear a little sound for a short time. So, I tested for power at all components & connections and everthing is getting juice. Does this mean that I need a new pump? If so, how do I lift it out? Because it is real heavy, though, I am strong I am a female and I am only able to lift it a few inches. PLEASE NEED HELP

Sorry, but exactly what are you describing?

Control panel for what?

Water pump? Central heating pump?

You could set up a pulley to help lift the pump out with a 'A' frame or tripod that'll sit over the well.
