well water pump


I thought my water line was frozen, but when I turned the outside faucet on, water flowed a few minutes then stopped. The pump came on, but continuously runs. The PSI is below 10. I unplugged the pump, waited, and plugged it back up. Should I prime the pump, or how do I increase thePSI?

Maybe it is frozen. How deep is your pump set. The top of the water line on my well is at about 10 feet but my pump is set at 450'. I am in Georgia so freezing isn't an issue, but In MN the top would freeze I would bet, causing me issues further down

Dumb me just realized we are thinking different water lines. The main water line into my house is buried at 4 inches...I suspect you could have some ice build up somewhere in the system...Again depends where you live, if it's in Tewas then I suspect not
