ive got a problem with my well.i have low pressure to the aerator. i replaced the pump in the ground about 3 months ago.hard to believe he pumps bad.i have good voltage at the pump i hear a gurgling sound when the pump cycles on before the water flows.im thinking the pipe is broken in the well ant suggestions?
anything worth doing, is worth overdoing

    The check valve could be bad, or the foot valve bad. It almost sounds like the pump is have to reprime itself

    That or a cracked fitting. That's where I would start.
