new shallow well problems

830 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  SHEPLMBR
I just installed a shallow well for irrigation. The well is 30' deep and i get water at 18'. Running one hose with open no more than 3/4 it has fine pressure, if i open it fully then the water pressure drops and the gauge drops to about 2psi. It never loses prime for i can close the bib and it will jump back up.
