    I think the difference between a $200 submersible pump and a $1000 dollar submersible pump is 5-10 years and 20-35 years which the pumps I've installed seems to last.

    I've never seen a man who is equally as good at fixing things as he is at breaking them. Do you think he learned to fix things so well because he breaks every second thing he touches? Or does he just break everything because he knows he can always fix it? Either way, I'm deep in this rabbit hole and I'm loving these videos.

    The iron oxide is strong with this one. You need to flush that well more often. Your bleach is reacting with the iron in the water. Hope you have good filters.

    i think the problem you have i also had with my garden pump which is roughly the same size and cost $ 240, it stopped working last year. I then completely disassembled mine as far as I could. and then i saw the problem that i already suspected (calcareous water). Lime clogged everything. I then put the entire machine in a large bucket overnight and added water by dissolving about 15 ounces of citric acid. Problem solved. try it with yours Andrew if youre having the same issue, saves money..

    Andrew, by now I'm sure you solved the problem but I thought I'd add my 2 cents since as a farmer I had to learn about wells and irrigation systems. A controller is probably a VFD couples with a 3ph motor which would give you a constant pressure system. No control is likely a 240V with a pressure tank, and these are constant flow systems. motor sizing is a function of how much flow at a given pressure (and of course lift). You well is basically at ground level :) You can find charts on the gould website with motor and pump pairs for your situation. good luck. Actually feel free to reach out if you still want to talk about pumps etc.

    A union would be a good idea rather than pulling the poly lines apart every time you change the pump , your pump will not last the way it is installed 1.your tank is too small the pump needs to run for at least 90 sec to not over heat 2. the pump motor is on the bottom and the pump on the top, your motor fell off, do a better job to tighten the nuts Loctite works well 3.the pump in that small pipe will over heat rather quickly leading to its failure , get a bigger pipe 4.3/4 pipe from the well will cause the pump to work harder adding to the over heating 5. the filter you have is designed to be used under a kitchen sink not for your application go to a larger filter if you think you need it ( 25 micron 20 inch ) iron remover would be even better 6. the box on the wall is a control box , the round cylinder is a capacitor you are lucky you did not get zapped even with the power off if you don't leave a deposit most drillers will not show up , you would be amazed by the number of people that just will not pay once the job is done and yes the right pump may cost you 600 to a 1000 a Grundfos SQE would likely last 30 years if you install it correctly

    You shoulda made black and red the hot wires. If white is a hot wire you're required to put a ring of electrical tape on it to tell people it's not neutral. Not that anyone's going to come looking in your box, but I know you like your stuff to last "100 years" so one day someone might have to replace the pump that's not you.

      Yeah, I could have, the reason I did not because red was the start wire, and the new pump did not require that. But anyone servicing that pump will easily be able to tell what was done there.

    "Why are the pumps like 1000$ dollars?" Because they're banking on you not knowing the worth of an item not commonly bought by residents. Septic repair guys quoted me 700-1000 for a septic pump.

    Most pumps die because of dirt in the water wearing out the internals and/or the diaphragm in the pressure tank develops a leak so it doesn't maintain pressure which causes the pump to run continuously.

    I don't know much about electricity, but it seems much more complicated to you than to us in Europe. My electrical installations in my house look like child's play compared to yours in America, again we have all the possibilities like you. As far as I understand you have special lines for AC current and for DC current. Therefore, every yotube channel from America looks to me like you are all electricity experts, from ordinary people to semi-professionals to full-fledged professionals. I wonder if this is due to the unnecessarily complicated rules of electrical installations in your country? I have a feeling that every ordinary person in your country must know everything about electricity in some way, or that his life is complicated if he doesn't know.Your electrical installations seem to me like a small factory, with a lot of cables springing up everywhere, I have a feeling that every house has a separate room for electrical installations, I say that not only by watching this channel, but many youtube channels from North America. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I repeat again I am a total idiot about electricity. but that's how it looks to me.

Driving and operating all these different vehicles in the USA, do you need a different license for each vehicle or is is it more like a specific tonnage license allows the driving of a number of vehicles?
