Well Pump Problems Fixed – Rain Water Collection System

rain water collection pump check valve

Thanks to your comments I was able to find and fix the pressure leak in my shallow well pump I’m using for rain water irrigation. It was indeed the check valve. It was the wrong type of valve that could not take the pressure. The flapper was being pushed backwards when the pump pressurized.

See the problem I was having in this video.


This is my current rain water irrigation setup:
