When I run a usual amount of water, say a long shower or a load of laundry, the water runs out and I have to manually shut the pump off otherwise it overheats and loses its prime.i was thinking it was a shallow water table do to the dry summer and was going to have the well drilled deeper this spring. It's a shallow, drilled, well.
Also to be know is there are plenty of springs around the house, during heavy rain they literally come up threw the lawn. Water can be hard running into the well being shooting free, very very wet around the house this fall. So I'm second guessing this being a problem with a shallow well and feeding water table
